Hi! I’m Charlene C* Lam
I’m a NYC-LDN curator, creative business coach and digital content consultant.
With degrees in mass communications from UC Berkeley and surface/textile design from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in NYC, I draw on my experience in journalism, marketing, retail, and digital content strategy to help creatives show and sell their work. Frustrated by generic social media advice, I developed a specialty in social media and content development for creative businesses and organizations, sharing my insights through talks, workshops and consultancy.
I’ve spoken about creative business, experiential retail and social media at events like 100% Design during the London Design Festival, Clerkenwell Design Week (London), New Designers (London) and Brooklyn Designs during NYCxDESIGN. My clients include NYC design fair WantedDesign and the British Institute of Interior Designers (BIID).
How I Work with Creative Companies
I work with designers, makers, brands and creative organizations in NYC, London and around the world in a couple of ways:
- Digital content strategy and development
- Content production and presenter onboarding for online events
- Social media consultancy and workshops
- Creative Business coaching and mentoring
- Speaking and writing

*What does the C stand for? Officially, as in on my passport, it stands for my Chinese name. On a day to day basis, it changes depending on my mood – the C can stand for Creativity, Courage, Carousels, Crumpets. Most of my favourite things start with C!
