More about Charles… Originally from England and now a resident of Canada, Charles Marcus has come a long way. For over 25 years he could not do what most of us take for granted--speak. He lived with a severe stuttering disability, sometimes going for long periods of not being able to speak at all, suffering much ridicule, rejection and prejudice and dreaming one day of being able to speak fluently in public. He was finally able to realize this dream after making an important decision: to take full responsibility for his life and confront his challenges and fears head on. Today he is an inspiration to people all over the world combining his story of overcoming adversity and winning against the odds with his street wise, down to earth business and leadership savvy. With his unique “tell it like it is” style and approach, he delivers highly customized and dynamic motivational keynote presentations to Fortune 500 companies, associations, and organizations internationally such as American Express, Sun-Life Financial, Northrop Grumman, Freedom 55 Financial, Toronto Dominion Bank, The Special Olympics and The International Association of Administrative Professionals. His powerful story has also been featured in the international press and media. His thought provoking ideas resonate with participants in a very special way. They identify their own circumstances, challenges and situation to his story. Above all, his message empowers each person to identify and unleash the magnificent potential and greatness that lies within each of them. His whole focus is to inform, educate, entertain, challenge and inspire his audience to take action! His message will leave a lasting impression on his audience long after the event is over. Charles is also a proud member of The Canadian Association of Professional Speakers and the International Federation for Professional Speakers. “When we have the courage to dream and the commitment to succeed, a whole new world of opportunities opens up for us” Charles Marcus Most requested presentations
