  1. Success is Not a Spectator Sport – How to Take Action and Achieve More

    We choose to be successful in business and life the moment we decide to step out of our comfort zone to do whatever it takes to reach our goals. Based on Charles’ best-selling book Success Is Not a Spectator Sport, this keynote presentation will help your participants develop the mindset, create the game plan, shape the strategies, and find the discipline and motivation to complete the plays necessary for success.

  2. Seize the Moment: Winning in a Changing World

    The world is changing at a pace that is challenging to many. Think about how the digital phenomenon is disrupting the world of work, including the evolution of technology and the advent of artificial intelligence. In this keynote, Charles shares stories and experiences that help the audience embrace change instead of fearing it, develop a positive mindset, and take action to stretch themselves.

  3. Putting the WOW! Into Your Customer Experience

    This keynote is about building a service culture that is focused on excellence and delivering a world-class experience for the customer or client, that they can’t get anywhere else. He calls it The WOW Factor. Drawing on his many years of service-related experience, Charles shows participants that no matter how good your product or service is, if you do not build a connection and relationship with your customer and earn their trust, you cannot win their loyalty.

  4. Standing Out: Being the Leader Others Want to Follow

    Companies today that are truly successful know how to lead, retain, recruit and motivate the best team. Today, the need to compete in a constantly evolving market, and understanding how to adapt leadership styles given the generational differences in employees are challenges that every leader is grappling with. It takes a new way of looking at leadership, a different mindset. This thought-provoking presentation challenges participants to take the necessary steps to lead in a visionary and employee-focused way.

Exceptional. This is the word that comes to mind in reference to your close to our recent sales meeting… You were able to connect your powerful story and tremendous message in a way that made it personal for us and connected to our industry.

You may not know this, but in my 23 years with Investors Group, I have probably listened to hundreds of keynote speakers from all walks of life at various conferences and meetings. I can name but a few of them. Most speakers are good, even excellent, few are memorable. You, Sir, are MEMORABLE.”
