More about Charles
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 and leadership savvy. With his unique “tell it like it is” style, he delivers customized, entertaining and dynamic motivational and business keynote presentations and seminar programs to leading companies, professional associations, and organizations internationally, including American Express, Sun-Life Financial, Bank of Montreal, Freedom 55 Financial, TD Bank, Remax Realty, The Special Olympics, Royal Le Page, Mercedes-Benz of Canada, McDonalds Corporation, Hilton International Hotels, Meeting Planners international, Regis Corporation, The International Customer Service Association and John Paul Mitchell Systems. His powerful story has also been featured in the international media.

Charles’ thought-provoking ideas resonate with participants in a very special way. They identify their own circumstances, challenges and situation in relation to his story. Above all, his message empowers each person to identify and unleash the magnificent potential and greatness that lies within each of us. His whole focus is to motivate, inform, educate, entertain, challenge and inspire his audience to take action! His message will leave a lasting impression on his audience long after the event is over.

“When we have the courage to dream and the commitment to
succeed, a whole new world of opportunities opens up for us.”
