CHUCK GUMBERT brings a wealth of life and business experience, as well as a knack for overcoming adversity, to guide numerous others to success. One of Chuck’s first major challenges— overcoming the debilitating effects of polio at age 2—did not stop him from eventually excelling in high school athletics and later becoming a fighter pilot in the U.S. Navy, graduating at the top of his class. His drive for accomplishment, led him to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and become a nationally recognized business leader, entrepreneur, mentor and speaker.
Chuck has been heavily influenced by historic leaders in both business and the military—most notably ZigZiglar, Darren Hardy, Jeff Hayzlett, Vietnam POW Captain John M. McGrath USN Ret. and General George S. Patton.
Chuck’s three books outline his core principles of leadership and success: ACCELERATING PERFORMANCE, PUSHING THE ENVELOPE and PINNACLE LEADERSHIP. His most requested speeches are topics taken from his books to set a plan in place for a blueprint of success.
A true leader in an ever-changing America, Chuck is known for his unique ability to motivate and inspire
the audience, rally the troops to get everyone on board working towards a common goal, and launch a solid success strategy for improved and accelerated performance.
