Major Subjects

In 1987, at the height of his career, Chuck Gallagher made some bad choices. He went from wearing a business suit to an orange jump suit. 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 firsthand how easy it is to move from ethical to unethical. Having rebuilt his life — the lessons Chuck learned allow him to share a unique perspective unlike any other business ethics keynote speaker. Rather than taking the usual theoretical approach that most business ethics speakers take—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.”
