Mr. Ankney did an Amazing job for our event "Reach Out Reach One Do One thing". He was professional yet personable on every level. The message he delivered on serving was outstanding. We loved that fact that it was supported by scripture as well as personal stories. Since came to speak at our church there has been multiple that we have referenced what he spoke about.
I've had the privilege of hearing Charles speak twice. Once at our Chamber of Commerce meeting and once at our Staff Away Day. I find him easy to follow and with thought provoking ideas. Sharing personal events in his life allows the listener to easily follow along because it is real. No one can deny it and yet everyone can profit from it, no matter the situation. I would recommend Charles to anyone looking for a down to earth motivational speaker.
Charles did an excellent job as the opening keynote presenter for the 2015 International Association of Venue Managers Region 2&3 conference. He was fun, engaging and had a great story to tell. Many of the attendees left knowing they could make a difference in the world after his presentation.
It was a truly great experience. Very inspirational and motivational in the aspects of making a difference. It was also something very good to hear and put in that perspective. The Chamber is all about promoting you and your business in a positive way and he did just that. He is truly a genuine person, and believes whole heartedly in what hes teaching. I would gladly use Charles again for another event.
We had Charles do a speaking engagement at our general membership meeting at the Western St. Charles County Chamber. I have gotten a lot of positive feed back on that. The crowd was very engaged the whole time. I have received over 3 personal phone calls to the office from members that wanted to just tell me how much they enjoyed his talk. I feel like that says a lot. People are always quick to let you know when they are unhappy and not so much when they are. We will for sure be using him again.
Charles, thank you for taking the time to come out to Frisco, Texas and give our Team a Motivational talk. You made a difference! I was happy to hear about the information my Team members got out of your talk. You had their ears and attention on your stories. Great job...I will definetly call on you again!
I hired Charles to speak at our Fundraiser dinner. He communicated well with me beforehand. He spoke with great passion and delivered a great message. Will bring back next year!
Charles spoke at our staff retreat. He talked about how each person can make a difference. He had a great presentation, and we loved having him!
Charles was great, and I'm glad we brought him in. He related to the audience very well, and gave some great points to the listeners. He didn't get nervous or boring, and people I talked with appreciated that. People really seemed to enjoy themselves.
Great presentation! We really liked the strategies he gave us. Mr. Ankney would be a great speaker for your convention. Practical & applicable. Great resources provided! Thank you!
Charles did a great job and we loved his talk. It was spot-on for what our group needed. I heard a lot of positive feedback and I know people would love to hear him again.
Charles was awesome. He received many rave reviews - "Wish everyone could hear this", "Easy to relate to", "Encouraging and insightful", "Thought provoking". His presentation was organized, understandable and reminded us that a positive attitude is catching. He gave many ideas for everyone to use at work and in our personal lives and did a terrific job of involving the audience. I highly recommend.
"Charles was fantastic! Participant feedback on evaluation forms was extremely positive. Every participant gave him a perfect 5 (out of 5) for the categories: “The speaker was interesting to listen to” and “I would highly recommend a talk by this person on this topic.” Charles used humor and story-telling to deliver an inspirational message. Highly recommend. "
"Charles created an excellent presentation about how to help students who are bullied for the Arizona School Counselors Association Conference. Participants were impressed with his enthusiasm, humor, knowledge, and the practical steps. He didn't dwell in theory, but was very pragmatic. One school counselor remarked she has been to many trainings on bullying, and this one was by far the best she has ever been to. "
I've had the priveldge of hearing Charles speak a number of times on the subject of empowering teens though effective mentoring. Charles is a good example of passion and expertise coming together to send a powerful message. It is evident that he knows what he's talking about and has the skills to deliver the services he's designed. This makes him a trustworthy expert! Equally important is the pasion with which he speaks to the fact that character training, just like educational tutoring, is key to empowering students to make good decisions. That passion is contagious, and makes you want to follow along in his efforts!
Price Range: $500-$2500
What to Expect
People who bring me in can expect someone who is energetic, passionate about what he speaks about, and funny. I don't bore people! But I'm also very careful not to be cheesy either. I offer a "you don't pay unless you are satisfied" guarantee, and I have yet to ever have somebody not pay.
I founded a mentoring & life coaching service for teens. Basically, I got college students who wanted to make a positive impact into the lives of teenagers who needed some guidance in life. I also speak a lot and enjoy the opportunity to communicate my message that everyboday can and should make a difference in those around them.
I have spoken across the country to different kinds of groups.
Past audiences include: leadership retreats, professional conferences, fundraising dinners, school functions, church functions...and more
