I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed his speaking style and his engaging content that kept me thinking for days. The way he presents makes you feel he is speaking only to you—I could listen to him speak for hours. I couldn’t wait to get back home to read the book on the topic as well. I look forward to hearing Chris speak again soon…and often!”
