About Charles


Bio

For over 30 years and literally thousands of times, I have spoken publicly. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Divinity in 1981 and along with Greek, Hebrew, History, Philosophy, Theology were hours of videotaped messages given by me or others. After those messages were reviewed and critiqued by our professors and peers we went out and did it again. Now, after over 6,000 public speaking events I have learned a few things. Let me teach them to you.

Fear and anxiety are the greatest...

For over 30 years and literally thousands of times, I have spoken publicly. I graduated with a Masters Degree in Divinity in 1981 and along with Greek, Hebrew, History, Philosophy, Theology were hours of videotaped messages given by me or others. After those messages were reviewed and critiqued by our professors and peers we went out and did it again. Now, after over 6,000 public speaking events I have learned a few things. Let me teach them to you.

Fear and anxiety are the greatest barriers to effective public speaking. And while that’s true what matters more is the strengths you possess. I will help you discover how to use your inherent strengths to quiet the fear and anxiety that naturally comes from public speaking.

Most people dislike the sound of their own voice. Together you and I will use public spaces and electronic technology to give you confidence to use the voice with which you were created, and perhaps even learn to like that voice.

Most people believe the people to whom they are speaking are somehow superior. We will use mindfulness and breathing exercises to level the playing field.

Most people, when they begin to speak, hear another voice in their mind. That voice is telling you that you are stupid, that you are awkward, that you have nothing to say and you won’t say it right. Together we’ll learn to turn the volume down on that internal voice and turn the volume up on your true voice.

Most people don’t know where to put their hands, their feet or how to move in front of people. Together will learn and rehearse techniques to will fit your personality and make you appear that you are fearless. And after a while...you will be.

Most people believe they must memorize or read every word that is in front of them. While it is true the core content of any message must be delivered clearly, memorization can become a chain that hinders effective communication. It more often creates stilted speech rather than freeing it. Together you and I will learn how to master the content of your delivery in such a way it frees you from your bindings.

This world is filled with gifted speakers. The 21st century has given us access to hundreds of videos of great public speakers. We will study what they do that makes them great.

Finally, I love seeing people master their fears. You and I will get there. There is so much more to learn. And most of it applies to all of life. Contact me, and we can get started right away.
