“Chuck gave the keynote address at our annual internal Legal & Controllers Conference. We asked Chuck to provide fresh insight on corporate scams and fraud to a room full of seasoned corporate accountants and lawyers—a tall order. Chuck delivered his message with enthusiasm and aplomb, keeping his audience engaged and entertained for 90 minutes straight—another tall order. We received a number of compliments on Chuck’s presentation from our attendees, thanking us for booking such a dynamic speaker whose presentation resonated with the entire audience. I also want to personally thank Chuck, as the substance he provided helps further the message I work to deliver to our employees every day: to perform our work and engage with our customers, suppliers, shareholders, communities and with each other in an ethical, responsible, respectful and transparent manner. Thank you, Chuck!”

Cameron School of Business, UNC Wilmington
Deb Dean Helin, Program Director
Larry Shoup, Dean of the Business School
“Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! You are an amazing story teller and entrepreneur. You think out of the box, artfully convey your experiences and engage your audience. Great presentation Chuck-it was very impressive, dynamic, creative and informative! We loved your enthusiastic, contagious energy-it was very motivating! You really connected with our students; it was relevant, professional and extremely well received. It was a pleasure working with you for your Business Week® 2014 plenary presentation at the University of North Carolina, Cameron School of Business.”
Baylor University Center for Church Management
Phil Van Auken, Professor of Management and Director of Baylor Center
“Baylor University and the Hankamer School of Business were beguiled to have Chuck Whitlock lavish his time and rare gifts on us in conjunction with Ethics Emphasis Week at our school. Chuck did a masterful job in a number of venues during the week, including speaking to a variety of student forums, a faculty luncheon, a Better Business Bureau banquet, and to numerous media groups.
Chuck is the most effective public speaker I’ve ever seen in action — articulate, entertaining, dynamic, and educational. Chuck has mastered the art of engaging an audience with a unique combination of startling information, refreshing wit and humor, and an idealistic quest for the truth. He is one of the few in the business community who truly speak with the voice of authority. People rightly admire Chuck for his forthright commitment to an ethical marketplace and compassion for community service. He is a man on a mission, and a vitally important one at that.”
Holiday Retirement Corporation
National Executive Director, Ellen Thieman
“Thank you so very much for your participation in Holiday’s Passion For People – For Life convention in Maui. Your interesting and spirited presentation “Protect the Ones You Love – Fraud and Scams” was extremely well received by our over 1200 convention attendees. Many have mentioned your workshop as being one they felt contained information that could be taken back home, easily remembered, and referred to in their own lives as well as shared with their senior residents.
Your willingness to get to know who your audience was going to be, as well as getting to know our business, was well evident. Because you had taken the time to do your pre-convention ‘homework’ by visiting The Bedford, taking a tour and talking with our Managers, your credibility factor with our group was high. You definitely made a positive impact on our attendees – and for that, we are most appreciative!”
Better Business Bureau of Richmond, Virginia
“You are the consummate professional. My staff worked with you for over a year of preparation and are the toughest of all critics. They enjoyed every aspect of the relationship, from the first contact on the telephone, to the numerous tele-meetings to the site meeting the day before and, of course, the actual day itself. We are grateful for your contribution to our event. You made it special. And you made it a success.”
MetLife Special Investigation Unit
Special Investigation Unit
“I want to personally thank you for the two exhilarating presentations you recently gave at the MetLife Investigators’ Conference. In scanning through the conference surveys it became obvious that the attendees were of the same opinion I was, that your luncheon presentation on ‘What the Con Artists Don’t Want You to Know’ and afternoon session on ‘Business/Financial Fraud & Cyber Crime’ were just outstanding.
Your approach and speaking style really engage the audience. Many of the attendees I spoke with immediately commented on your work, and obvious in-depth knowledge of the subject matter. Moreover, the way you ensured the material was relevant and dovetailed into the work they do every day was just great.”
Sam Brodda, President
“Chuck was a speaker at a recent Fraud Seminar hosted for several hundred clients. The feedback we received was extremely positive.Not only did Chuck entertain the audience with some personal anecdotes but he spoke with authority about the real threat of identity theft, how easy it is to commit, and how vulnerable we all are. Chuck played several interviews he had with convicted identity thieves, giving the audience a chance to see some of the real faces behind this fast-growing crime.”
Washington Healthcare Associates
“Mr. Whitlock’s presentation reveals schemes and fraudulent activities that victimize seniors and helps providers to create a plan of action to avoid having those activities happen within their facilities. His vast knowledge and expertise provided sound data and a profound revelation to what can easily happen when nobody’s watching. We were delighted with the presentation, and our attendees gave it high marks on the evaluations we received.”

“On behalf of the SW Washington Agency on Aging and our sponsors at the Alzheimer’s Association, the American Heart Association, the American Stroke Association, and the SW Washington Medical Center, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to you for your keynote presentation at our annual Family Caregivers Conference. Your ability to communicate your message in a succinct and humorous manner, to our diverse audience of seniors at a level that relates to their everyday lives, is truly a gift.”

Delaware County BAR Association
Judge Henry Wilder, President
“I would be remiss if I did not convey to you the rave reviews you received from the members of the Delaware County Bar Association. The participants of the Bar’s Annual Bench Bar Conference truly consider you an ‘award winning’ speaker.
You greatly contributed to the success of the conference by your presence and your dynamic presentation. I hope that future bar association conferences have you on the program to insure an outstanding and favorable outcome. I thank you for making me a star by choosing you as the keynote speaker of the conference and I thank you on behalf of the lawyers who attended the conference.”
Utah Sheriffs Association
National Sheriffs Association President
“Thank you for helping to make the Utah Sheriffs’ Association’s Ninth Annual Law Enforcement and Corrections Training Conference a success.
The ratings for your workshop were among the best for our twenty-plus presentations, and I am still being complimented for selecting you as our banquet speaker. Your banquet presentation was both very informative and highly entertaining and easily bridged the gap between the criminal justice professionals in attendance and the other guests.”
South Carolina Sheriffs Association
Sheriff, Tom Trudy
“On behalf of the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association I would like to thank you for presenting your seminar on Scams, Cons, and Internet Fraud. Your presentation received the highest praise of any training or lecture ever sponsored by the SCSA. The information you presented was valuable and your instruction techniques kept everyone’s interest and attention.
The membership was impressed by your expertise and delighted with your sense of humor. I was immediately approached by members and others in attendance with remarks on how much they enjoyed your presentation. Your experience in the area of crimes involving fraud is overwhelming!”
Texas Association of Crime and Intelligence Analysts
Director of Training
“I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for your presence, and that of your staff, at the annual TACIA Conference. Your keynote presentations, along with your exhibit material, provided all of the attendees at the conference with ‘icing on the cake.’ This was significant because of the many professions present at the conference, from so many different agencies, including those from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the U.S.
If we had to summarize your presentations in a succinct format, it would be that we found your material on identity theft to be the most comprehensive, and yet least understood, of the personal and professional threats facing both law enforcement and the public. A more alarming message you presented to our conference participants concerns the real threat posed by ID theft and financial crimes related to the growing threat of terrorism. Your message needs to be heard!”
Oregon State Police
Robert B. Morris, Training & Education Manager
“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your active participation in the LEDS Workshop as one of our keynote presenters. Your presentation on identity theft and fraud was insightful and gave all of us in attendance additional tools to use.
Your presentation received high praise and I would wholeheartedly recommend you as a speaker to other law enforcement agencies. Without the commitment and dedication of persons such as you, this workshop would never become the success that it is.”
U.S. Postal Inspection Service
Western Region Director
“On behalf of the San Francisco Division of the United States Postal Inspection Service, I would like to thank you for presenting your seminar on Scams, Cons, and Internet Fraud at our division conference. Your presentation was informative, entertaining, and right on target for our audience.
The conference attendees were very impressed by your expertise and delighted with your sense of humor. I was immediately approached by members and others in attendance with remarks on how much they enjoyed your presentation. We greatly appreciated your appearance at our conference and look forward to working with you in the near future with consumer awareness projects.”
U.S. Postal Inspection Service
Washington, D.C. Director
“Thank you for addressing the recent United States Postal Inspection Service National Fraud/Forfeiture Symposium here in Washington, D.C. Your presentation was informative, entertaining, and right on target for the Postal Inspection Service audience.
