Success Is Not a Spectator Sport
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.

Dare To Be Great: How To Get To World Class in Business and in Life
Drawing on his personal and professional experiences and his success principles of Vision, Courage, Responsibility and Commitment, Charles illustrates that no matter what the circumstances or fears in life, once you take full responsibility for your own actions, and make that choice to be the best you can be, there is no limit to what you can discover, learn and achieve.

Seize the Moment: Winning in a Changing World
As a person who lived with a severe disability for many years of his life, Charles knows all about taking charge in times of change and creating change when the opportunity presents itself. Charles demonstrates that no matter what change you are experiencing whether in your personal, business or professional life, we must evolve and embrace new challenges.

Leadership Matters: Creating the environment that is critical to your success
Companies today that are truly successful know how to retain, recruit and motivate the best team. 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 different way.

Winning the Heart, Mind, and Loyalty of Your Customers
Today, business is not about just taking an order. You have to nurture a win-win relationship and focus on making the customers or clients feel so important and special that they will not only want your product or service, but will recommend others to you. Drawing on his years of experience, Charles shows participants that no matter how good your product or service is, if you do not build a connection with your customer and earn their trust, you cannot win their loyalty.
