Charlie Brown's Biography
Charlie Brown is a leading technology commentator and creator of technology businesses. He’s been an active member of Australia’s technology media since 2000 which has included the production of Australia’s longest running technology TV show ‘CyberShack TV’, host/producer of Australia’s most listened to technology radio show Life and Technology, publisher of CyberShack and appeared regularly on major Nine Network TV shows Today Show, A Current Affair and National Nine News.
Charlie has worked with branches of the Australian Federal Government providing insights into the future direction of consumer technology and supported a wide list of community groups and not for profits, assisting them to help their members better engage with technology.
Charlie completed a Bachelor of Business majoring in Marketing and sub majoring in Information Technology at the University of Western Sydney 1999. He is the founder and director of CBN Media, and under its umbrella has launched a number of media businesses and in more recent times, technology projects. CBN Media has created relationships with major technology vendors and Australian media networks, producing content and providing consulting expertise around Consumer Technology.
In December 2019 Charlie steered CBN Media through the development and trial release of ‘G-mee’ a smart device and ecosystem, giving the community a new option when choosing their first Smart Device. G-mee give customers the opportunity to use a Smart Player or Smart Phone, but provides extra protection from user information over sharing and cyber security dangers.
Across his work as both a commentator and a company director, Charlie always does his best to demystify technology for the average consumer.
“Technology changes every year, to the point where I understand how so many struggle to keep up,” said Charlie. “There’s a new development about a new product every single day, and it’s unreasonable to expect consumers to know it all. The average person doesn’t care about gigahertz or terabytes, they just want to know if a product will work for them and how it will do it. That’s why I try and cut through the jargon and explain the real world value of the latest tech.
Charlie is a popular speaker and MC for corporations and industry groups, including Visa, Harvey Norman and the Photo Marketing Association. To these events he brings an unrivalled ability to communicate, educate and inspire his audience on issues relating to the technology of today, what is just around the corner and how developments can and will change the environment in which we live and do business.
