You’re here because you’re interested in something to do with the digital world. Maybe your industry is pushing into digital transformation, or you’ve been told that social networks and social media are the right tools to reach your buyers. Or you’re having trouble helping your employees express their creativity and collaboration to further develop your company. Someone (a really wise person) told you to check in with me. I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m Chris Brogan, a business advisor, author, and keynote speaker. I’ve helped huge companies like Sony and Disney and Microsoft and so on figure out some aspect of how to navigate this crazy new world and the rapidly shifting culture around it. I’ve given over a thousand speeches, workshops, and closed door briefings to a very wide variety of industries to help advance their goals.
I work internally with C-suite teams and HR teams on talent development/training, and I work externally with CMO types on marketing projects. Check out my offerings page.
Companies hire me for a few reasons, near as I can tell:
- I do a lot of wide-ranging research and observation of digital culture and how it impacts buyers and employees.
- I’m super personable and down to earth and have a knack for explaining things in a way that bosses and employees understand.
- I’m professional enough without ever being a stuffed shirt but also not the untucked swear-word-jar-filling type, either.
- I customize each presentation for the organization I serve.
- I help companies make decisions and spend less money on the process.
My Work on #dented
Recently, I’ve been talking about how companies can better embrace the rich tapestry of their employee base to promote better creativity and collaboration, especially given that one in three employees (technically one in three people on the planet) are dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression.
Companies with wellness programs focus a lot on physical health and that’s wonderful, but in this new always-on, fast-paced, we want everything right now kind of world, people are feeling like they’re falling behind. As leadership races to change management methods to be more personalized and less “butt in chair,” how can organizations embrace the fact that we all have a lot to give, even if we’re all just a little bit dented.
This specific work takes the form of internal workshops and speeches and early stage program development research. I focus on the changes leadership, management and teams might consider in the pursuit of improving creativity and collaboration.
I love helping companies market better in the digital space and the experiential marketing space (to me, these overlap). I believe that the fast-paced always-on world around us is changing so rapidly and that people are so overloaded with information that they can’t possibly see what you’re trying to sell them unless you earn their attention.
We all want people to love what we sell, but it is only when people feel seen and understood that they are ready to buy.
