Patrick S. Ugboma (- Chairman International Energy Insurance (IEI) Plc Nigeria)My Dear Charles, you achieved the obvious at our recent retreat. You have not only succeeded in re-engineering the mind-set of the staff, including myself, but you equally succeeded in encouraging us to STRETCH and LEAP. I promise you we will. Your training to the senior staff were credible, sound and it has rejuvenated the work force to distinguish themselves in this unfriendly business climate. I believe we will be sending you some reports of our improvement shortly, courtesy to your well thought out lectures. God has endowed you with a lot of knowledge and wisdom, a powerful Speaker, a motivator and a gift to the Blacks. I am looking forward to inviting you for another retreat probably at the middle of this year.
Dudu Myeni (Director, Jacob Zuma Foundation)Charles brought both inspiration and challenge to the audience of the last African Business Leaders Conference (ABLF), he is brilliant and insightful as a leader, presenter and facilitator. When he said, "release people from your heart, forgive them and allow them to go" it was mind boggling to me. He brings practical yet important aspects for human progress that we as South Africans need the most, and I wished that many of us had attended. Charles helps you realize that u can be the change you wish to see in your own work environment, business, family and community if you would only take the lead first, and help others transition to where they want to be! Charles talks to the inner person, he illuminates so much light, if you want to energise and develop your team, your executives, people in any leadership position, engaging Charles will be money well spent! My first step is to invite him to address some of our forums, Associations and leadership seminars in South Africa.
Edith Dankwa (Group Managing Director Businessin Africa (Magazine)Group)We the organizers of the much acclaimed African Business Leaders Forum, an event that brings together business leaders from across Africa and the rest of the world, wish to single out Charles as an outstanding moderator. Charles is an exceptionally talented individual with the ability to display remarkable control and knowledge of the subject matter anytime he is in charge of a function/programme. Charles demonstrated his rare abilities at the last ABLF, throughout the various sessions of the three-day programme by exhibiting a remarkable sense of leadership and confidence as a moderator. We have confidence in his capability and are grateful to him on his performance and will not hesitate to call upon him to assist us in any subsequent event/conference.
Jim McAloon (Executive Director Scottish Business Enterprise (Glasgow))Charles spoke in Dunbartonshire, Scotland in November 2004 to an audience of local business leaders, many of whom have listened to motivational speakers previously.The audience reaction to Charles was overwhelmingly positive with the key messages of the importance of integrity in leadership and the absolute need to "take your people with you" providing both inspiration and motivation for the delegates.After Charles input there are more Dunbartonshire business leaders who are leading and not just walking.I would highly recommend Charles as a speaker as his enthusiasm and belief in people is infectious!!

Charles has a unique style which is rare for this side of the Atlantic. He will grab you by the scruff of your neck and shake you upside down until you find out what really gets you going. His approach is direct and to the point, combine this with his powerful voice and larger than life presence and you have something to knock any European audience of their feet, worth setting the video for!

I was intrigued by his rather infectious graceful professional presence that managed to capture the audience with ease. Charles not only demonstrated respect, patience, brilliance, excellence and tact but was able to calm a heated Q&A session during our Media Presentation. Charles used diplomacy, charm, and a beautiful sense of humour to gently put the blaze out. WOW! I really commend and salute you Charles, Job Excellently Done!
