In my 25 years of collegiate coaching I’ve had countless opportunities to hear professional development speakers address student-athlete performance in both the classroom and sport venue. Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman delivers a fantastic presentation – he connects with people. Based on his own successes and setbacks, he analyzes how we can mentally prepare ourselves to meet our highest aspirations. He speaks of his own experiences as an NCAA collegiate wrestler, a public school educator, and UFC professional fighter. I, along with my players, made an immediate connection with Charlie. His concepts are thought-provoking, prompting you to look inward at habits, behaviors and attitudes and the results they yield. I strongly recommend Charlie Brenneman to anyone looking to gain a competitive advantage whether they are in sports, business, or community service.
