I was so impressed with your presentation this morning...

I was so impressed with your presentation this morning-it was so moving. Your life is the biggest of roller-coasters and I'm sure you are blessing many with your hard learned life lessons. I am the person that said hello this morning, and do think a book about your life would be both fascinating and inspirational.

The best presentation I've heard in my 10 years...

Hi Chuck, just wanted to say that that was the best presentation I've heard in my 10 years working here. My best friends father was a lawyer in town and went through a very similar situation as yours. Well half of it, he chose to end his life just after he got caught before going to jail. Anyways, just wanted to say thanks for coming down that was extremely memorable, very well done and helpful to me personally and to our employees.

Captivating and compelling!

Chuck's presentation on ethics is both captivating and compelling. Each time I hear him speak, I get a nugget of wisdom that helps me in my daily life! The two sessions Chuck held at the IMA Conference in Hickory, NC captured the audience and took the topics Accounting Ethics and Communication and applied them in a manner that allowed the listeners be active learners. The sessions helped me both professionally and personally. In the days following the conference, I found myself reflecting on the information I gleaned, as both sessions were thought provoking. I look forward to applying what I learned to be a better CPA, Educator, Co-worker, Mother and overall individual.
