Captain Charlie Plumb personalizes (for each audience) a highly motivational message of overcoming adversity… His and Yours.
Shot down during a combat mission over North Vietnam, Plumb survived almost six years as a Prisoner Of War and emerged to tell a tale of inspiring self-reliance. In an upbeat, humorous, and dynamic style he draws upon this experience to demonstrate how to turn adversities, the hard times each one of us faces, into assets in today’s market place and in daily living.
An expert at incorporating company jargon and industry buzzwords to reach the hearts and minds of each audience, Captain Plumb shares his insights on coping with the challenges of every day life, and business competition, in the twenty-first century. He helps audiences break free from their own self-constructed prisons of fear, blame, and doubt. He helps them uncover a new sense of purpose and potential. He gives each participant the strength to rise above the daily challenges of work and home and to recognize the opportunities that surround them. He leaves his listeners wanting to achieve and excel, no matter what the obstacles.
In a powerful look-to-the-future manner, Captain Charlie Plumb illustrates the importance of living life to the fullest and of overcoming everyday adversities.
Since his return to the United States, he has presented his message to more than 4,500 audiences in every industry and from all walks of life. Selected one of the top 10 public speakers in the country, Charlie Plumb looks forward to being a part of your next event.
The Power of Choice: In a daily routine, or in a communist prison camp, each of us has the choice to succeed, to fail…or to become the victim of circumstances.
Adversity: Viewed as opportunity and challenge, adversity encourages growth, and propels us beyond self-imposed limits.
Teamwork: In a world where downsizing forces us to do more with less, we must empower the team. “Packing parachutes” can mean the difference in survival. Yours, and your teams!
Change: Invariably, just about the time things feel comfortable, change hits. And whether that change is positive or negative it can be disturbing and difficult to adjust to. Yet, it’s during those times that ones true value shows up, in taking the risks necessary to adapt to change.
Empowerment: Each of us has assets we often times don’t tap into until we’re challenged. Whether or not we realize it, we each have the inner strength and resources to meet whatever business or personal challenges come our way.
