How We Started
Charlton House Professional Services Ltd. was founded in February 2020 and formed in the pressure cooker of UK tax legislation (IR35) changes and the global COVID-19 Pandemic.
Co-Founders Amanda Jackson and Tom Sewell were independent contractors working at a mutual, large FTSE100 client. Tom was a Training/L&D professional, and Amanda a Senior Finance Manager specialising in Transformation initiatives.
Noticing the environment changing rapidly around them and spotting a gap in the market for IR35-compliant management consultancy services, Amanda & Tom formed Charlton House, focussing (at first), on generalist Business Transformation services.
Our Road to Success
Just months into trading when the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic hit, and with the vast majority of large-scale Programmes coming to a halt, the founders had to react quickly if the newly established business was to survive.
With organisations worldwide struggling to provide traditional learning services under COVID-19 lockdowns/ restrictions – the pair pivoted their strategy toward providing Digital Adoption services.
12 months and a lot of hard work later, having grown to a team of 15 and having become the UK’s first & only accredited Delivery Partner of the world-leading pioneers of Digital Adoption Platforms (WalkMe), CH were actively delivering DAP services to several major blue-chip clients on large scale global SaaS platforms.
