"Charlie opened the Global Compliance Solutions 5th Annual AML/Compliance & Financial Crimes Conference in Grand Cayman with his fabulous 'Stoke The Fire Within' presentation. He captivated our attendees with his wonderful stories, and his absolute enthusiasm for life was infectious. Everyone there was inspired! One attendee said, 'When Charlie finished his presentation I felt like I could do anything!' It was a brilliant way to start the GCS conference!"

Each day I wake up telling myself its going to be a good day. After your program this morning it enforced my feeling of trying to make each day a great day!

Charlie Adams does a masterful job. His message would resonate to any professional group or student group. His affect on teachers and administrators here at North Montgomery was awesome and was the injection of enthusiasm we all needed to start another school year. I cannot recommend more highly a motivational/inspirational speaker than Charlie Adams.

"Charlie was the speaker for our annual IVRA conference in Indianapolis. He was AWESOME!! No other words can describe Stoke the Fire Within. Our conference attendees gave his presentation the highest score. The hilarious stories and video clips were priceless and they were always accompanied by a message. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a genuinely warm and funny guy who entertains and yet sends a message at the same time."

Charlie delivered the Stoke the Fire Within program at the 2nd annual Sales Rally for Meridian Title Corporation. One employee in attendance stated, 'Charlie Adams is incredibly entertaining and his positive energy is instantly infectious.' Another wrote to me 'Charlie has given me fuel to use in my sales calls.' I believe the sales staff and managers who attended were incited to think differently about obstacles they may face in their sales efforts and even in their personal lives. His motivating stories will be etched in our memories for a long time.

Charlie's message was exactly what I had intended as a wrap-up to our two day Teambuilding conference; he provided the inspiration our team needed to go forth and achieve their new goals.

Your presentation was the number one 'most liked' feature of our annual Dyna Care Home Health Goals Meeting in Chicago. One supervisor in our Texas branch said she wrote down about 20 "Charlie-isms" that she'll use as motivational messages to her staff.

"Charlie inspired me to take it to the next level. When he talked about the statue and the cameraman that wouldn't settle for mediocre, and that Charlie took a chance, and the response he got - that gave me goose bumps! I want to take it to the next level this year!"
