I’ve had the pleasure to work with Chuck Dodge over the last few years. He’s worked with me to create seminars for the investment sales staff at my bank. One recent seminar, “Effective Listening Skills” was especially well received.

Chuck made this presentation to our sales staff in July of 2001. This presentation lasted for about 50 minutes and was made to 35 of my co-workers. Chuck’s presentation included salient tips and suggestions on how effective listening skills can substantially improve the success of our sales staff.

I look forward to further presentations with Chuck. He is a talented speaker and is able to offer practical advice in a well-received and enthusiastic manner.

Vice President, Citizens Bank

Thank you for your presentation, “Learning to Promote YOU.” Your message, working toward realizing your full potential, was well received by the 42 people in attendance. We also found the length of time, 30 minutes, to be right on target.

Since your presentation, I have observed teammates recognizing one another in a direct and purposeful manner. They have used very specific adjectives to describe a behavior or trait of a peer. It is truly heartwarming to see the response to this recognition from both the sender and the receiver.

Administrative Aide, Community Services

I am happy to respond as a reference supporting Chuck Dodge as a presenter. His speaking style is dynamic and truly motivational. His knowledge of the areas of self esteem and learning is terrific and he shows great determination to excel at what he does. My own work brings me into contact with a variety of minority groups and I feel that any of them would be put at ease and ready to learn with Chuck’s personable approach.

Chuck’s presentations would fit groups of all sizes and should improve even the most professional audience’s outlook on life. Communities would be better places if more organizations were able to send people to Chuck’s programs to improve their personal skills and ability to cope with today’s hectic world.
