Charlotte is a casting director at the National Theatre. After studying Psychology at university,
she worked in any theatre that would have her, so has tried her hand in all sorts of areas - literary, press, marketing, finance, bar, bookshop, front of house, back of house, and for one night only on the stage at Shakespeare's Globe, having lost an actor to food poisoning at the very last minute. Charlotte loves plays, and is excited and honoured to be working with Invisible Flash.
Hugh studied music at university and continues
to explore and lecture on the wonderful topic of sound. For many years he's also worked for a national charity as a professional campaigner and policy advisor. Most of his working days are all about convincing organisations large and small to behave and act inclusively, so disabled people can play a full role in society. What he finds to good about being part of Invisible Flash, is that it is exciting and is about creating a new future for everyone. His role on the board is to share what
he knows and help Invisible Flash to success.
