Charles Marcus


Charles is a successful business leader and a highly sought after international keynote speaker. He is also the best selling author of the highly acclaimed book Success Is Not a Spectator Sport: How to Take Action and Achieve More. His new book, due to be published in late 2010 will be titled Dare to Be Great: How to Get to World Class.

He is also a former award-winning sales professional and corporate leader in the sales and service industry, winning the prestigious Excellence in Sales award from a major corporation for exceptional accomplishments in sales, marketing and customer service. He was always in the top 1% of sales in his company worldwide. In addition, Charles has been nominated in the past for the Courage to Comeback Award in Ontario, Canada. He was also nominated for the prestigious Management and Achievement Award for exceptional business achievements and his contribution to the community at large, from McGill University, in Montreal, Quebec.

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, Charles is an inspiration to people all over the world, combining his story of overcoming adversity and winning against the odds with his streetwise, down-to-earth business, sales and leadership savvy. With his unique “tell it like it is” style, he delivers highly customized, dynamic, motivational and business keynote presentations and seminar programs that are also fun.

Charles’ thought-provoking ideas resonate with participants in a very special way. Attendees identify their own circumstances, challenges and situation in the field in relation to his story and message. Above all, his message empowers each audience member to identify and unleash the magnificent potential and greatness that lies within each of us. His whole focus is to motivate, inform, empower, entertain, challenge and inspire his audience to take action! His insights, strategies and ideas can be used immediately to generate business in the field.

What people are saying about Charles…

“You may not know this but in my 23 years with Investors Group, I have probably listened to hundreds of keynote speakers from all walks of life at various conferences and meetings. I can name but a few of them. Most speakers are good, even excellent. They have to be to reach an Investors Group Podium.

Few are memorable. You, Sir, are MEMORABLE”

Perry Catena

“The feedback from your talk to our advisors and management team has been phenomenal. You were terrific, a breath of fresh air. Whilst I had heard a lot about you and you came highly recommended, you surpassed even my expectations”
