Charlotte Henry

Charlotte graduated from the Lancaster University, having majored in music technology, and studied politics as a minor.  Since then she has always been interested in ways of using technology to improve and engage people in politics. She writes the blog Digital Politico.

After a few months interning in parliament for Lib Dem MP Don Foster, Charlotte started C.A.H Multimedia, a company that works with clients to develop their social and web presence. She has worked with a wide range of commercial, political, and third sector clients.

Away from work and politics, Charlotte is an obsessive music fan, collecting vinyl and CDs from across the musical spectrum, as well as a devoted follower of Tottenham Hotspur FC.
