What others say

Testimonials

“Chris was excited about our conference theme the first time that we spoke with him. He asked a lot of questions and wanted to learn about our conference to best tailor his presentation to our audience and our desired message.

He is passionate about his work and his passion shone through in his keynote.

His messages about the importance of courage in leadership and what it means to be a leader without authority or title are great messages with important lessons for everyone.

Chris was a pleasure to work with and I recommend him.”

He is able to really understand our organization, our people, our strengths and nuances and then provide workable and viable approaches for how we can best move ahead in an ever-evolving landscape. He truly cares about the success of our folks and is a valued partner.”
