A quick word about Chuc Barnes

Chuc has focused on making minutes count since high school when he and his team set a cross country track record. He later became a radio deejay (each program had to be on time) followed by active duty in the U. S. Marine Corps (where a minute can make the difference between life and death). As the father of three sons, he saw how precious minutes are for his sons (and how fast they grow up) so, after heading a large manufacturing company, he founded his own personal development firm. Today he speaks for—and coaches—professionals who want to make the minutes count in their business days, presentations, and personal lives.

Some of the leading organizations Chuc has worked with to inspire them make their minutes count:

• The NFL, Sony Motion Pictures, Betty Ford Center, Nissan, Deloitte & Touche, Harper-Collins, United Way of New York, Leukemia Society, American Cancer Society, Liz Claiborne, Pennsylvania Judiciary, Anderson Consulting, National Audubon Society
