About Charlie Adams' Programs


Charlier has three main programs that can be tailored for corporate, college, school, and church audiences and events:


PROGRAM ONE:

OF MYSTICAL LAKE PLACID AND THE MIRACLE ON ICE

This program features the Miracle on Ice and how it came to be as the
core, but also has many inspirational and downright fascinating stories about Lake Placid.  Audiences' emotions will be moved as Charlie takes you on an unforgettable ride through America's greatest sports moment - the Miracle on Ice - and how it came to be.  This is unlike any motivational talk in the world.  It gets you deep, makes you think, makes you dream.  There is great power within what happened three and a half decades ago, and we all can benefit by learning HOW it happened, and how the Miracle on Ice was not a miracle, but earned!

Charlie's most suggested time frame is 2 hours for this one. Trust us, the audience will be riveted by the stories, the emotions, the humor, and the history. It can be tailored to 90 minutes or 60 minutes.


PROGRAM TWO:
THE FASCINATING STORY OF LAKE PLACID AND THE ENCHANTING STORIES OF TWO WINTER GAMES THERE

This program focuses on the back story of Lake Placid (the only place in
America to host two Olympic Winter Games). It includes the Miracle on Ice but focuses more on stories such as:
  • How the creator of the Dewey Decimal System created Lake Placid, America's first winter resort.
  • How this village stunned the world in getting the 1932 Games
  • The powerful story of Billy Fiske, who Tom Cruise has wanted to play for years, and how his story is like he fell out of the pages of a F. Scott Fitzgeral novel. Billy first won gold at age 16, won gold in the bobsled in Lake Placid in 1932, and later became the first American to die in WWII.
  • The incredible story of Eddie Eagan. Born into poverty and losing his father at one, Eddie was inspired by the Frank Merriwell at Yale dime novels. So inspired, he was educated at Yale, Harvard and Oxford and reached immortality in Lake Placid in 1932.
  • The story of Kate Smith, who felt Lake Placid was her favorite place on earth.  Kate was the first to record God Bless America.
 In 35 years of speaking and researching topics, Charlie Adams feels the
story of Lake Placid and the Miracle on Ice is by far the most fascinating
he has ever researched.


PROGRAM THREE:
HOW THE MIRACLE ON ICE HAPPENED, AND HOW IT WAS ACTUALLY NOT A MIRACLE - BUT EARNED!

This program is specially on the journey of the Miracle on Ice team and
what has happened in the three and a half-plus decades since then. The
most suggested time frame is 2 hours, but can be tailored to 90 and 60
minutes.

All of these programs work for any audience and any event. This is NOT a
hockey talk, per se, but talks of what made America great and how by using the spirit and success principles of Lake Placid and the Miracle on Ice, we too can accomplish anything and overcome anything!

These programs are tailored to the theme of your event, whether it be
teambuilding, leadership, attitude or any other subject.
