I was recommended to connect with Chris, as I was told he was one of the best speakers around and he is.
Russell Martin, Manager, Southampton FC.

An engaging speaker, interesting and varied background, and a good story to tell. Chris knew his stuff and delivered the story well.

We are so pleased with your output and ability to connect to our mass population of young contact centre colleagues. We feel happy you met our brief and appreciated your collaborative working style. With over 130 colleagues attending your sessions I can safely say you were a hit. Today we ran more sessions about how to think outside the box when it comes to your own growth and learning, I was a facilitator and many of my team were quoting to me your ideas and thought points, demonstrating that you really did hit home.
