Work with Charlie
Charlie has over 20 years experience in Regenerative practices.
Charlie Arnott is not just an award winning bio-dynamic farmer. He is also an incredibly passionate educator who thankfully, is spreading the regenerative farming message throughout Australia.
– Random Farmer
The first person we approached when piecing together speakers and consultants for our Regenerative Farming Conference “From the Ground Up,” Colac, Victoria, was Charlie Arnott as our potential emcee. This proved to be one of the best decisions we made.
– Random Feeder
Not only does Charlie hold high professional values, he has an engaging yet ‘casual’ style, which is VERY authentic. This style lends itself to an easy rapport with the audience, whilst building trust.
– Random Eater
In the ten months from engagement to conference delivery, Charlie’s public profile seemed to multiply every month. This did not stop him from helping with speaker and content suggestions, and sharing our event through his own marketing channels. You get so much more than just an emcee when Charlie is on board, and his attendance helped ensure our event was both a National Success and a Sell Out.
