Trusted Media Brands
“I had the very fortunate experience to work with Criteria for Success on a six-month project to turn around our Sales organization at WebMD. And based on that success, I hired them to train my new teams at Trusted Media Brands Inc. Charles is our project leader and is always inspirational, memorable, engaging and funny — but, he is also extremely buttoned-up and well-prepared. The consummate professional.
I recommend him, his team, and the sales philosophies and techniques that they have perfected, to any consultative sales organization.”
Vice President, Sales & Marketing
Trusted Media Brands Inc. (fka Reader’s Digest Association)
“I’ve taken numerous sales trainings over the last 8 years, but none offered the perspective and yielded the successful results that Charles’ company, Criteria for Success, did.
I would not be the sales professional I am today without the hands-on coaching from Charles.
I would recommend him and Criteria for Success to any organization looking to help their salespeople grow as individuals and improve their sales results.”
Regional Vice President
Financial Services at Salesforce
“Sales training is an art – one that Charles has perfected. Coaching 40 extremely competitive, talented, difficult Sales Reps at EMC Corporation.
Charles had the humor, knowledge and talent to demand attention, uplevel existing skills, and coach a new level of sales ability.
Teaching new and unique skills is a challenge in a competitive market and delivery and content is key. As a Sales Executive – I would insist that Charles be on my team.”

Manager, Human Resources
at Infinity Info Systems
Their understanding of the psychology of buyers and sellers is manifested in the systems and techniques that will lead to positive sales results for your team.
While some of their techniques caused some raised eyebrows during our training, the proof is in the pudding: they really work. I recommend CFS for those of you who desire to transform your sales team from order takers to deal makers, developing members from knowing what needs to be done to doing what needs to be done.”
VP Sales and Marketing
at Ward Leonard
Their coaching abilities enable a sales organization to open their minds to not only the methodology of selling but of the psychology behind the selling process.
They demonstrated that the sales process has as much to do with the mental abilities as it does with the stages of selling. Their courses are designed to the perspective of the buyers as well as the sellers applicable to the business their course is addressing. They teach their students with respect, intellect and a common bond. I would not only highly recommend them but given the chance keep coming back to their practice of successful selling process. Well worth the hire!”

I highly recommend his company for sales/customer service training and strategic support. You will like doing business with him and his team.”
CEO at Pickert & Associates
Charles displayed tremendous insight into our organization and its personality.
We were able to reorganize and re-energize our sales efforts based on his work. An additional benefit was the Playbook that we developed which has provided us with a structured vehicle for web based organization.
He started out as a consultant and ended up as a friend.”
