CHARLI SHARP, Founding Partner & Head Trainer
Charli is a Marketing and Communications Professional, Trainer and Instructional Designer. She received training from the Association for Talent Development (ATD) in the areas of learning and development, training design and delivery, measurement and evaluation, and talent management.
A graduate of Old Dominion University, she holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications, and she earned her Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) through the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).
Charli started her agency career as an Account Coordinator at one of the largest mid-size PR agencies where she moved through the ranks, training junior employees and leading the internship program for the office. She quickly realized that interns and entry-level employees were not provided sufficient training nor set up for success from the onset. As a result, she developed a program whereby interns participated in mini trainings with subject matter experts across the agency. Prior to the agency, she worked at Dale Carnegie Training, which instilled in her the value and importance of continued professional development. Most recently, she served as the Director of Public Relations for the Virginia Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau where she was tasked with building from the ground up an “in-house agency,” while simultaneously developing her direct reports.
Charli's agency and client-side experience and passion for mentoring others led her to create Sharp Development Partners, a first-of-its-kind training and onboarding solution for the marketing and communications industry.
