On the 23rd March I had the absolute pleasure of meeting and interviewing Charlie Parton having listened to a talk about his current perspective on China and its rising global presence.

Having spent around 40 years as a diplomat in China, he is incredibly knowledgeable and was inspiring to speak to. His career has taken him all over the world and has presented him with a lifetime of knowledge and experience. It was a true delight to learn the worst and best parts of his career, as well as the fascinating advice he had for aspiring diplomats.
