“When Blank Happens”

This controversial title makes for an emotional experience with audiences of all types as Chris gets personal about the “blank” that happens in our lives. 

Through his personal experiences (losing a mother to suicide, father to cancer, and failing in several businesses) he examines how we can deal with the “blanks” of our lives, whether it be personal or professional. 

This is a must hear talk as Chris identifies the three keys to getting through “blank.” Audiences are floored with Chris' vulnerability, and walk away truly connected with the daily challenges they face and a fresh take on how to approach them.

“Is that Possible?” 

In this perspective shifting motivational talk, Chris breaks down the popular concept from his recent book, Step, called the “Proverbial Mile.” He describes how the mile stands between:

A person and their dreams...

A business and its objectives...

An organization and its mission...

Chris shatters the illusion the mile projects in our heads by practical advice on how to look at the mile in a different way. Audiences walk away from this talk ready to take immediate action in their lives, businesses, and organizations.

"Is Anyone Listening?”

Drawing from his experience as an expert in developing some of the world's leading mobile applications, not to mention being a millennial, Chris pokes fun at the old way of doing things. He backs that fun with tips and tools on how to survive in a 15 second, 140 character, small screen world. 

A few excerpts from this talk include:

“A blast message to all of your friends on Facebook is a bad idea!” 

“If your message takes longer than the time someone is stopped at a traffic light it will get lost.”

“I don’t care about your selfie, I care about mine.”

Audiences will laugh as they identify with the “tactics” we’ve all used or had used on us that didn’t work. Chris leaves the audience with practical tips for engaging in the “mobile” world.

"The human aspect and vulnerability he brings are gripping."

"I fell in love with the book, Step last winter when I was searching for a personal development tool to recommend to my team. We lead a team of 15,000 people that are hungry to improve their lives, practically, one day at a time. Chris’ message has helped our team take their biggest, most audacious dreams and break them down into the smallest actions. I can’t recommend Chris enough! Perhaps the best part is how relatable Chris is with the audience. The human aspect and vulnerability he brings are gripping."
