Scott Rasmussen

Helping NZ investment & insurance advisers grow their financial planning businesses Charles was referred to me as a presenter for our professional development seminars across New Zealand. Charles topic was on Building Better Relationships and Putting the Customer First, which he delivered flawlessly. He spoke openly and honestly about his family and careers to date, engaging with the audiences to provide practical examples of what you can do when you think out-of-the-box. 

Charles doesn’t pretend to have all the answers when it comes to using social media, but what he does share is his passion for putting the client first and continually trying to build better relationships with them. Using social media tools is at the forefront of how he does this. 

If you are looking for a trustworthy, consistent and reliable presenter that is always thinking out-of-the-box then I would suggest engaging with Charles. I can’t recommend Charles highly enough.

Toby Jenkins

CEO at Bluewire Media

We had the pleasure of hosting Charles at our Social Media Down Under 2013 event to talk about his personal journey through social media as a financial adviser. His laid back, honest approach was really welcomed by the audience as he shared both his successes of new business wins through the relationships he'd built on social media and the lessons he'd learned from his mistakes. He's a great story teller and I look forward to hearing many more from him. Thanks Charles

I engaged Charles as a speaker for a Tasmanian Leaders Alumni luncheon to discuss the topic of online marketing and branding. Charles is a true entrepreneur and prominent Tasmanian business figure, he was engaging, knowledgeable and extremely entertaining, the feedback from the alumni was excellent. If you are looking for a fabulous motivational speaker who thinks outside the square for your next event, someone who will inspire your audience, I would highly recommend Charles.

Anna Gardiner

National Marketing Manager - Advice, Colonial First State

It was a pleasure to see Charles’ recent presentation at the 2013 Adviser Edge conference. A purpose built event for leading financial advisers to learn how to successfully engage with clients and using social media strategies. With a reputation of professionalism and subject matter expertise preceding him, Charles’ captivating speaking ability exceeded expectations. Charles has a rare gift of blending business related messages with an engaging and educational delivery. He equally informed and entertained his audience sharing real-life experiences, practical tips plus provided substance for take-away use. 

Charles’ presentation style is so enjoyable because he talks with the audience and not to them. He is approachable and takes the time to connect with all involved at the event. I highly recommend Charles for any speaking engagement that is looking for someone who can share topical information, powerful ideas and add significant value to the overall program
