Charla Symons – Marketing Manager
After graduating with a degree in Broadcasting at Falmouth University in 2007, Charla set-up a digital media production company producing online content for international businesses including Marriott Hotels and Hewlett Packard’s European departments. Finding that the majority of her time was spent working abroad, Charla made the decision to carve a career closer to home and, supported by the Unlocking Potential Graduate Placement programme, joined the team at Truro BID as Marketing and Events Officer.
In her 10 years in post, Charla delivered a number of key projects for Truro including a new brand for the City, destination marketing campaigns and a series of events and festivals predominantly focused around culture, tourism and business growth.
With a love of creative communications at heart, Charla joined the Unlocking Potential team in June 2018 as Digital and Web Coordinator, progressing to take on the position of Marketing Manager alongside Betty Paton in March 2019. Charla takes great delight in filling her spare time (and face) with her love of good food, regularly cooking for family and friends – balanced by long bike rides with the kids, woodland walks and sea swimming.
