Charles in a few Tweets
  • My passion in life is... to build up businesses around my passion and the things I really enjoy in life together with the people who push me further.
  • Others say about me that... I am extremely motivated when it comes to quick late-night work sessions or early morning flights, where I am always in a good mood.
  • My biggest challenge is... to destroy the stereotype of the age being just a number and disrupt the branch of old advertisement media agencies.
  • Creative thinking in events means... to really focus on the creative being the variable of success when it comes down to simple campaigns on social media.
  • I share my knowledge at Bea World because... I really think there is a lot that the „older generations“ simply don’t realize when it comes to customer and event experience in Gen Z. My best advice to event planners is to really listen to what their fans and clients (visitors) are saying about them. Festivals win today because they listened to their fans and target group, not the money.
