Charlotte Sexton is a digital strategist and independent consultant for the museum, heritage and cultural sectors. She specialises in supporting organisations to transform and modernise by bringing digital thinking to the very heart of their philosophical and working practice. Moving organisations beyond a ‘digital strategy’ she has helped them to share their stories, connect with audiences and support their essential day-to-day activities through more effective use of digital media.
Formally President of MCN an international peer network for museum professionals, she understands the new opportunities and challenges facing cultural organisations and their staff as they attempt to adapt to an increasingly digitally driven world.
As Head of Digital Media at the National Gallery, London she defined the organisation’s digital ambitions and transformed the way the public could engage with the Gallery’s world-class art collection using new digital technologies – whether physically in the museum, online or using mobile devices.
With more than 20 years experience creating and managing complex digital projects she is highly skilled in her field and is frequently asked to share her expertise both in the UK and internationally, through consulting, lecturing and presenting at conferences.
