Oliver
Founder and CEO, Tech 2025
2018 Speaker

New York City

Charlie’s years of experience in the trenches of old media include working in advertising in New York at such media goliaths as BBDO Worldwide and Condé Nast, to producing sitcoms and dramas at Sony Pictures Entertainment, Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, Dreamworks and Oscar-award winning indie production companies, to event management at the Sundance Film Festival. After spending several years in corporate law in document review at global firms (White & Case, Clifford Chance and Wachtel Lipton, to name a few), Charlie segued seamlessly into tech and new media as a web video producer where she co-created and co-produced experimental web video projects including producing the first internet livestreamed “webathon” during the 2008 presidential election (“Women Respond to Sarah Palin”). In 2009, she founded Served Fresh Media™ (a New York-based digital media marketing company).

At Served Fresh Media, Charlie and her team provide digital strategy, senior management advisory, team building and training, strategic partnerships, event management, and product development for companies. In January 2017, driven by a passionate need to help the general public to understand and participate actively in the next technological revolution, Charlie launched Tech 2025 -- a community and platform for the general public to learn about the next wave of disruptive, emerging technologies that are expected to drastically change our world in the next decade, and to facilitate debate discussions about the impact of these technologies on society. Charlie’s philosophy is simple: "Be fearless and unapologetic in the fierce pursuit of your goals and be just as passionate about helping people."
