Speaking, Keynotes & Workshops

Set Up Your Next Event for Long Term Success

Inbound Sales & Content Marketing – Keynotes and Workshops

Tired of “company retreats” and organizational events that have no positive ROI or real business outcomes? 

There are many organizations we speak with that bring in speakers for conventions, conferences, retreats and company getaways.

The sad reality is that the vast majority of the content of these presentations and team building exercises goes in one ear and out the other within a few days.

Why does this happen?

  1. The leadership team has no goals for such an event.
  2. There is no alignment with the messaging and overall company objectives.

Leadership teams often feel obliged to hold events that will “rejuvenate”, “reinvigorate” or otherwise get their team’s proverbial “asses in gear”. (Relax… We say stuff like this in Texas.)

So what can we do that works?

We need to break the cycle of poor planning and lack of strategy that leads to little to zero business results.

We work with leadership teams to ensure that not only are we a good fit, but that we can deliver a desired result. If not, we will simply decline the opportunity. It’s that simple. Aligning expectations for an event with stakes this high is paramount.

His experience and personal approach to marketing was well received by all, but I have to say it’s his ability to engage the group and foster productive conversation and idea sharing that really sets Chris apart. It’s always a pleasure working with Chris.”

 Stephanie Harrison, Cantey Hanger LLP


“Chris was an active brainstormer, helped us solve problems on the fly. The course wasn’t canned; it was customized to our needs. Chris wasn’t overbearing – just a great listener and obviously experienced. He made 2 solid 4-hour sessions bearable. I really enjoyed the session and launched an email campaign 48 hours after training (so far so good — on a 900-member list, open rate is approaching 40% click rate is 8%!)”
