8 Reasons Businesses and Associations Choose Charles
1. You Want Fresh Content that can be Applied Right Away, Not Outdated Theories That Don’t Work.
Charles is more than a speaker. He is a sought-after consultant, who has worked with hundreds of top companies helping them to build healthy organizations that grow their people and profits. Through his consulting work, Charles is constantly developing and applying the concepts, ideas, resources and tools you will be learning about in his programs. This means your investment in Charles will pay off right away.
2. You Want A Program Customized for Your Organization, Not Generic Content That Doesn’t Apply.
Though Charles has delivered over 500 programs in his career, no two are the same because every audience is different. Charles starts with his foundational programs and then through an interview process, he molds the program to exactly fit your organization, the event and your audience.
3. You Want Substance with Style and Energy, Not A Boring Presentation.
Charles has been described by one of his clients as,
A cross between a philosopher and the energizer bunny… with a big helping of ‘get er done’.
…He’s decided to take that as a compliment. Translated this means Charles is who you bring in when you need a high impact message delivered with great energy, some funny stories and a guarantee that the audience will be engaged and talking about the presentation for weeks, months and years to come. He’s not a motivational speaker, instead he provides actionable content in a motivational way.
4. You Want A Unique Perspective that Connects the Pieces, Not Confusing Concepts That Your Audience Won’t Understand.
Throughout his life, Charles has been known for his unique way of looking at the world. Well before the term Blue Ocean Strategy was coined, Charles was helping his clients look beyond their own industry’s best practices to connect great ideas and concepts from wherever they are found into actionable strategies and actions. Being a true “read-aholic” is one of his superpowers.
5. You Want Over the Top Audience Engagement!
Everyone gets involved when Charles speaks. Customized exercises are always a part of the program… even keynotes! Charles understands what few speakers do, that knowledge is turned into actionable learning when “you” get involved.
6. You Want Added Value!
First, Charles will take the time to get to know your organization and its members before the program. He’ll do the research that is needed to make the program remarkable. This can include a survey of your attendees, the key people in your industry, senior leaders and board members to find trends, challenges, interests, and more.
Second, as an internal or external marketing tool for your program, Charles can author articles or blog posts, be interviewed on podcasts, interview key leaders (audio or video) or attend pre-program meetings to encourage attendance and participation.
7. You Want Lasting Impact, Not A One-And-Done Program That’s Forgotten As Soon As It’s Over.
To make sure the value provided in the program translates into action, Charles does three things to reinforce your audience’s learning:
- A challenge to apply what you learn. Charles ends each program with a challenge to write down 3 actions you could take from the program. He then puts his own skin in the game by challenging the audience to send him their action plans in an email, so they can be accountable for taking action within the next 30 days.
- 60 days free individual consultation. Charles provides his phone number and email in his program and any accompanying materials and encourages the audience to contact him with any questions they may have on the material presented. Charles is committed to being responsive and thorough.
8. Grow Your People, Grow Your Profits
Charles’ passion is working with senior leaders to build healthy organizations that grow their people, so they can grow their profits. Hire Charles and your audience will not only be entertained, they will discover new perspectives and have new tools to apply their learning right away!
