Charles & Oliver
Optimum: a partnership between Charles Speakman and Oliver Hudson providing complete event production services to audiences of all sizes, worldwide.
Involved, engaged and invested, we are proud to put our name to every event we produce.
Our business is, and always has been, based upon personal interaction; with each other, with our team of event specialists, and with our clients. We work with household names including Jaguar Land Rover and Nationwide Building Society.
We have a talent for immersing ourselves in our clients’ worldview, and can exceed the expectations of today's most diverse and exclusive brands.
Retailer Launch Events
Since 2006, Optimum has provided production services to support Jaguar Land Rover events throughout Europe.
From content preparation to bespoke environments and on-site technical support, we work closely with the client from concept to realisation.
Delegate satisfaction and brand experience are paramount, and we are proud to contribute to outstanding feedback for every event we are involved with.
On the eve of the Paris Motor Shows in 2014 and 2016, we were privileged to be chosen as the production company for private launch events at the British Embassy.
The unique requirements of client, venue and timing required an approach born of experience and capability at the highest level, and we are proud to be regarded as one of the very few agencies permitted to operate in such an exclusive location.
Creating luxury environments fit for royalty is not for the fainthearted.
In 2014, 2016 and 2017, Optimum were engaged to provide temporary accommodation and supporting infrastructure of the highest quality for a major sponsor of the Invictus Games.
This extended to a programme that covered the hospitality needs of VIP, press and customers, requiring precision planning and execution.
We also supported the creation of a premium hospitality environment for Land Rover at the 35th Americas Cup in Bermuda
Creating an event that promotes your brand without overshadowing the outstanding achievements of professional and amateur athletes requires a delicate touch.
We were thrilled to be selected to provide production services at the Royal Opera House for a gala dinner hosted by George Lamb and Natalie Pinkham.
High pressure but incredibly rewarding!
When effective communications are paramount, you need an agency that understands your brand, and the aims and requirements of your board-level executives.
On a monthly basis we undertake the production of business meetings on all scales and in locations worldwide.
Often requiring the very highest level of confidentiality and security, we recognise that every client's needs are unique.
Bespoke Event Production
We provide bespoke event production including everything from design, audio, video and lighting, external structures, internet and facilities provision, all the way down to the tiny details like getting the right soap in the bathrooms.
We consider every aspect of the event and often fit technical and scenic items to installation-level quality – where appropriate – even for temporary events.
We understand that your needs will be unique and we will work closely with you to create a bespoke solution. Let us approach your next project in a different way: we can transform your event experience.
