Interview with Charles Marcus

Which tools do you use to encourage audiences to strive for success and leadership?

My presentations give practical and meaningful insights, skills and ideas for people to follow and use immediately to enhance their learning – all customized to the clients needs and objectives around success and leadership.

Customer Service is a big topic of mine along with sales tactics and skills. I also have power point slides as a visual learning enhancement when asked by my client and a handout can be given too.

In addition I make my “Success Is Not a Spectator Sport” book available as an extra learning tool.

How does your personal story and struggle with a stuttering disability influence your keynotes?

My story is not always a factor in my business related keynote presentations but more in the motivational type of keynote presentations when the client wants me to share my personal story and struggles and then I relate it to the needs and objectives of the audience.

  • Example 1: Relate your personal story of overcoming stuttering and inspire my sales teams who have a hard time handling rejection.
  • Example 2: The audience is going through a lot of change and uncertainty.

I relate and weave my story around change and tailor it to their world, very powerful and impactful. I feel I do this customization with story telling as well as anybody out there today. My story is also very powerful and emotional and has a lot of meaning for audiences to encourage, engage and inspire them to take their professional and personal lives to the next level.

I interject humor as well where appropriate. I think one of my strengths is when I do talk about my personal story and struggles, I engage the audience, and we bond and connect and are one. Everyone has problems, challenges, situations, struggles – the key is to relate your world to their world and that is what I do.

What type of audiences benefit most from your keynotes?

I can customize to really any audience but I would say mainly a sales representative force or team in any industry, insurance, financial, real estate, car sales etc. would benefit.

A service audience would also benefit and anybody in a customer service role.

Teachers, high school students, college students, university students, social workers and nurses are also great audiences for me.

Furthermore management and leadership teams, business owners and entrepreneurs and also government audience.

How do audiences generally describe your talks?

I like to let others describe my talks and me and I have heard flattering words like: memorable, inspirational, life changing, outstanding, impactful, dynamic, hit a home run, polished, WOW, customized, remarkable, high energy and engaging.

What is the best experience you have had as a keynote speaker? 

I have been blessed to have had many memorable presentations globally. Each presentation is so different and it is hard to pick just one memorable experience. When an audience member comes up to me after my talk to speak to me, sometimes they’re very emotional and say that by hearing my speech it made them change their thinking. They tell me that I impacted them and turned their life around. That is an honor and what it is all about.
