Presentation: Do you want to be SUCCESSFUL or SIGNIFICANT in the Security & Fraud Industry?

Speaker: Charles “Chuck” Andrews, CPP, CFE, CFCI, ICPS

Presentation Description:

Chuck will give an interactive presentation of his 40 years of exposure in the law enforcement, security & fraud industries from the perspective of being a Police Explorer to Chief of Police to Chief Security Officer (CSO) with both government & corporate institutions. Chuck's insight thru Friends Of Chuck (FOC) has allowed him to have unique perspective with people, processes and technology. He will share how the common denominator of "relationships", communication and follow-up lead to being "significant" in the industry, as opposed to just being "successful"?

The power of relationships, stand-alone, cannot be dismissed in all things! Having key relationships is the single most important factor in work, life and future! Trying to get a job or advance your career or perhaps you need to get that key information from someone to close a fraud case? ONLY relationships will tilt the end result in your favor. During Chuck's presentation he will walk you through the example of how just a single business card, handled properly & strategically, can help you be "significant"! Chuck will also discuss how to "significantly" use social media, in order of LinkedIN, FB, Twitter & Instagram as a tool to help grow your network. With almost 95,000 members in Friends of Chuck (FOC) as personal testimony to his "significance" in industry, you will have the opportunity to learn the same as Chuck walks you through best practices in building your network through relationships.

Charles "CHUCK" Andrews, CPP, CFE, CFCI, ICPS has been in the law-enforcement & security industries since 1976 starting as a Law Enforcement Police Explorer in Houston, TX. His police explorer career logged 4,000 hours of patrol-time before his 19th birthday when he quickly became a TX Peace Officer. During his Police Explorer tenure, Chuck was also a security officer and thus already learning about the beginnings of the security industry.

After completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the distinguished Sam Houston State University, with honors, Chuck studied overseas in Europe inside the criminal justice systems of multiple countries. Upon his return, Chuck worked full-time in Law Enforcement in both Colorado and Texas in patrol, crime prevention and training.

Chuck currently sits on the ASIS International Board of Directors, after serving as Houston Chapter Chairman and RVP for the State of Texas with over 28 years of ASIS Intl volunteer service.
