Charlie didn’t conform to societal norms at school and he was targeted by the teachers for not following curriculum rules to the letter. He then went on to start Personr, a powerful identity verification platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI), and he contributes to the evolution of regulatory technology by helping businesses around the world avoid falling victim to fraud and data breaches.

This episode delves into how entrepreneurs think differently about problems and solutions, how they are held back by societal structures and how the future should look to cater for brighter minds and evolution in technology. 

From real estate to HR and international corporations that hire across the globe, Charlie details how to spot fraudulent documentation, how to put new best practice security measures in place following the Optus and Medicare data breaches and where the future of data security is headed in Perth.
