Welcome to the Chuck Thomas website. This site attempts to combine some information about my personal and professional lives. For my personal side, there is a section on my family, where you can learn a bit about them and see their pictures. There is a section on personal interests, where you will find some of my interests explored, including such topics as technology, sports, travel and “fun stuff”. I have included a new and growing section on Commentary, some blog-like opinions on topics that interest me.
For my professional side, there is a summary of my consulting interests and my qualifications. You can also find a relatively complete, but summarized description of my working experiences, plus a section on my education and other professional background information. Some of my current involvements - consulting, helping former students with their business startups, and business and personal advisory actvities - are briefly described. If you wish, you can also get a printable copy of my current resume.
There is some information here about the courses I have been teaching at Penn State University and at The Philadelphia Center. If you are one of my students, I hope the insight you learn about me helps you to navigate our course even more successfully. I welcome your suggestions (and everyone's) about how to make this site better and more interesting.
Click on any of the subject areas on the left to explore them. There are a lot of links within this website, so explore them, too. And be sure to look at the the streaming videos about our family, our travels, our home, and "fun stuff". Enjoy your journey.
