A quick feel for my speaking (3 minutes) with longer examples if you scroll down: 


We brought in Chris as a guest speaker for a private event for our clients. Chris totally rocked it and understood the vision we were going for and crafted the message around the audience’s profile/make-up. What’s great about Chris’ public speaking is it engages the audience, adds value to them, and there’s no weirdness or BS. It’s practical. Chris was also an all around pro, on-time for arrival and didn’t go over his alotted time slot. We plan on working with Chris for more speaking engagements. Hire him for your next event, you won’t go wrong.

Participants will learn to shift to these 7 mindsets:

  • RESILIENT MINDSET: The ability to keep going regardless of the circumstances. The ability to separate who you are from your results. When your identity is not determined by your performance you can hold up under the pressure.
  • RELAXED MINDSET: Not chillin’ on your couch relaxed but relaxed internally. A non-anxious presence. Nothing to prove, nothing to hide. Bringing your authentic self to your leadership with confidence and humility.
  • VICTOR MINDSET: The ability to flip obstacles into opportunities and to create advantages out of your disadvantages. An understanding that you are a work in progress, not a finished product. The Victor loves to grow, even more than winning.
  • VISIONARY MINDSET: The ability to find a reason to keep showing up and keep moving forward regardless of your current status. Imagining a vision of what this moment could be like to entice motivation and energy. 
  • FOCUSED MINDSET: The ability to quiet your mind even in the midst of chaos and fully engage the present moment. Heightened awareness and undistracted presence. A game-changing superpower that few people actively develop.
  • PROCESSED MINDSET: The love of the process, the evolution, the practice, the skill building. Disciplined to a routine that keeps you prepared even through moments of discouragement. Learning to harness experiences to position yourself for peak experiences on demand.
  • EMPATHETIC MINDSET: The ability to be the most emotionally aware person on the team. The magic to connect with each individual on a root level that plays to their desires, calms their fears, and inspires their dreams.

To consider:

Depending on calendar availability, Chris is willing to speak at events, public or private, anywhere in the world. 

Speaking fee can vary depending on audience, length of presentation, audio/video rights, and travel difficulty.

In some cases, bulk purchases of books, typically for distribution to the audience, can be substituted for a part of the speaking fee.

Half of the speaking fee is due to hold the event on the calendar.     

The speaking fee is waived in rare circumstances that make sense for both parties.
