Born and bred Adelaide, South Australia, Helen Robinson is my legal name, however, I’ve been online and engaging via any social media platform forever, known simply as “Charlie”. The nickname picked from one my mother had given me as a kid. It stuck. My upbringing harks back to an English (Sussex) heritage involving publicans, bakers, and financial controllers.
As a highly qualified communications professional with extensive experience in the aged care sector of recent years, my work drives engagement in policy, projects, services and fundraising.
With qualifications in communications, extensive experience with publishing, social media and management, I have been a strong advocate for ageing with dignity and I have been a change agent on a range of boards, including the Rembrandt Living Aged Care and Health Consumers Alliance of SA.

But wait, there’s more
Charlie is a #winelover and created a social group called ‘Unearthing Wine(lovers)’
As a wine enthusiast with no formal wine industry training, I run a small successful hobby wine group of 1000 members and have done so since 2007. I have written articles for, and appeared in, publications such as SA In-Business, The Advertiser, Adelaide Matters, Sunday Mail and InDaily.
Quote: “for some people it is a way to see the world, for others, a way to do business. Whatever. Lets interact. Embrace, celebrate and enjoy the new perspective, different angle and additional benefits online brings.” ~Charlie
Charlie has been engaging in conversations online for a few years – with her first email sent around 1994/5
Topics such as being a carer, developing deeper understandings about aboriginal design and culture, social learning and radio notes are some of the things you will read about.

Doug, Charlie’s old boss, once wrote: “Your insistence that all communication should also be art and that good information is well designed has transformed us all. The element missing in the earnest efforts of our UK colleagues is the artful fun you bring to the table…”
