Want a Business Ethics Keynote Speaker Who Offers More Than Just Textbook Theory?

Eye-opening Messages that Raise Ethics Awareness—and the Potential for Business Growth—to a New Level

Every choice has a consequence. In 1987, Chuck Gallagher made some bad choices at the height of his career and went from wearing a business suit to an orange jump suit some years later. So… you might be asking yourself, Why would I want a former convicted felon to speak to my organization about ethics and integrity? Why? Because Chuck has experienced first hand how easy it is to move from ethical to unethical. Having rebuilt his life back to immense success — the lessons he learned allow him to share a unique perspective unlike any other business ethics keynote speaker.

Rather than taking the usual theoretical approach to ethics—which, frankly, can put an audience to sleep—Chuck captures attention by talking about his own journey from a human perspective, then combining it with a practical application. His presentations are sometimes humorous, often thought-provoking and always impactful—but never “textbook.”

So what will you, your people and your company get out of it all?

Each of the presentations below can be tailored to meet your organization’s specific needs.
