Add To Speakers List

If you’re on the lookout for a true pioneer to take your event to the next level, then Charlie Martin is the woman for you. Regarded as one of the most exceptional diversity keynote speakers around, her journey as a trans woman making her way in the world of motorsport grips audiences everywhere she goes. 

Prior to her transition, Charlie’s motorsports career began in hill climbing taking part in a number of events across the country. In 2006 she began making her name on the British stage, taking part in the Hillclimb Leaders Championship, part of the official British Hill Climb Championship. From here she went on to compete at the European Hill Climb Championship and has gone on to star in a whole host of competitions around the world.

However, in 2012 she stepped aside from motorsport in order to undergo her transition. From the age of seven, Charlier knew that she was transgender and struggled with identity and her place in the world. Losing both her parents at a young age heaped even more adversity onto her shoulders, and when booked as an event speaker she can discuss with audiences how she overcame such huge obstacles in her life, before going on to achieve her success.

Following her transition, Charlie thought that there would be no way back for her in motorsport. In an industry that is extremely male-dominated, she couldn’t see a place for a trans woman racing driver. Despite these initial concerns, she took the brave decision to return to the track and become an inspirational role model for transgender people everywhere.       

Since then, Charlie has used her platform to raise awareness of transgender and LGBT rights, using her own personal life experiences to be a trailblazer for these communities. In her role as one of the greatest diversity keynote speakers, she regularly can be found championing more diversity and inclusion, not just in motorsport, but in society as a whole. 

She’s gone on to receive huge recognition from within the community, and Charlie regularly gets involved with a range of initiatives to raise the profile of LGBT and trans sportspeople. This includes working as an ambassador for Racing Pride and as the LGBT charity Stonewall’s first-ever Sports Ambassador.

Success on the track has also followed and she’s competed in the German VLN Championship, the 2021 Britcar Endurance Championship and has ambitions of being the first trans driver to compete at the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans.
