Celebrated Peak Performance and Leadership Training
Chris is a recognized expert in leadership, peak performance and public speaking.
He's successfully applied his skills by reinventing himself and his career in 180 degree opposite directions several times, going from:
-> High school dropout at age 14, homeless and in a drug clinic to
-> Renowned stage and TV actor to
-> First time university student at age 30 to
-> Top-20 MBA graduate to
-> Fortune-20 Vice President to
-> Successful entrepreneur/CEO in financial services
-> Currently a renowned speaker and trainer in Peak Performance, Leadership and Public Speaking.
Chris started life behind the eight-ball, leaving a violently abusive home at age 14.
He spent much of my teenage years living in a drug clinic, the homes of empty-nesters seeking to help a troubled kid; and even lived in a tent for a while. In fact, he's been homeless twice in his life.
Chris later returned to high school, but graduated dead last from his high school class of 326 kids.
Yet he went on to appear in a #1 TV show and in critically acclaimed plays in his 20s.
He feared he would fail miserably in college. He had never once in his life studied and the concepts of studying and learning were completely foreign to him.
He left his very first class and, alone in the parking lot, screamed at the top of his lungs into the night as he slammed his text into the pavement next to his motorcycle. His dream of an education was crushed. He'd sat through an hour-long math class and could make no sense whatsoever of anything the teacher had said. Humiliated and demoralized, his dream was dead.
But the passionate desire to learn and to graduate college burned inside. He worked hard, graduating UCLA with honors from a Top-10 program, while also working 30 hours a week and becoming a first-time father.
Chris then received his MBA from Purdue's Top-20 business school.
Following school, he quickly became a Vice President for several Fortune-25 companies, then succeeded as an entrepreneur, selling his first company, Billing Management Group.
There a number of good trainers and speakers out there. What makes Chris the best one for you? What sets him apart and makes me the answer to your needs?
Regardless of your circumstances and needs, he's probably been where you've been--and then some.
He knows your challenges. Most importantly, he has proven tools and techniques for you to conquer your challenges.
Chris has been homeless, on drugs and a massive failure.
But, with his passion and determination to be the best he can be, he changed who he was, raising himself above and beyond the limitations he was born into.
Later, even though his acting career was going well, Chris once again reinvented himself, terrified that he could not succeed in college, he nevertheless followed his passion and gave up a successful acting career at age 30 to follow his passion for an education.
At age 30, for the first time in his life, Chris taught himself how to learn and he performed at honors levels and obtain his BA and MBA degrees from top-20 universities
Chris been on top of the world in wildly diverse professions: as an actor on the #1 TV show and acclaimed plays, as a Fortune-20 Vice President, as an entrepreneur/CEO and as an author, speaker and trainer.
Chris has also fallen from the mountain, experiencing homelessness for the second time in his life after having already achieved substantial success.
But once again, he reinvented himself and rose above and conquered painfully limiting circumstances.
Chris has spent his life finding ways to overcome personal and professional challenges. He has very likely experienced your personal or professional challenges or he can relate to them and has proven tools and techniques for you to master your potential, rise above your circumstances and craft brilliant experiences, performances and results.
