  • Charles Best represents all that you hope for in a keynote speaker. His work through touches millions of lives - teachers, students, parents, entire communities. His message for our group of public school principals and superintendents was engaging and inspirational. Charles personalized his time with us through research on the schools in Texas and through his interaction - Q&A became planning for next steps for individuals and our organization. We left the session with a renewed sense of purpose in our work.
