Book Chris to speak at your next event

My role in your event is to mash the best of what I know against my research about your industry and the conversations I have with your attendees, and turn it into something of value and action, and fun. Look, I’m not a juggler or a magician but I am also not a stuffy suit. My job is to deliver value to your attendees AND make you look good for hiring me.
