- Anatomy of a Computer — Honestly, does technology frighten you? Does it beguile and confuse? You are not alone. With examples and metaphor crafted with Common Sense, Charles takes his audience through a brief and painless exploration of today’s central technology. What IS a computer, anyway?!
- Where do YOU Hurt? — Addressing pain is the backbone of business, personal growth, and the development of relationships. Professional pain can be a failure in computer systems, fluctuating market prices, or turnover. Relationships can fall apart from the smallest of problems. And, the isn’t a person alive who hasn’t felt alone or betrayed. Charles takes his audience through the processes, and compares conflict resolution and forgiveness. One works strictly for legal reasons, but the other can truly save us.
- Icing on the Cake — Delayed gratification is hard! Getting into shape, getting an education, getting into heaven, none of these are not easy feats. Yet, focusing on the final reward disregards the journey. In this talk, Charles expands on the value in work, itself. After all, there’s more to a cake than frosting.
