Many thanks to Chris for headlining our recent Sales Guru Live events in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg. Chris spoke to sell out events in all three cities and received standing ovations at these events and feedback from our clients has been nothing short of spectacular. Chris has an amazing story to tell and he does so with unlimited passion and drive. We look forward to having Chris back at our events in 2018 to speak about his latest mind blowing accomplishments.

BRETT WOODSales Director-Sales Guru Live

Chris is an amazing human!! Hearing how he maintained his positivity and mental health through his incredible voyage is amazingly inspirational. His talk was very timely; reminding us of the essential elements and tools required to maintain a positive outlook during these trying times. Chris’s authentic delivery and positive energy left our team uplifted and inspired!”


Chris provided us with an authentic view of his own isolation experiences and shared top tips that were easy to incorporate into daily life to help us navigate through this crisis and even beyond. I believe anyone could benefit from learning and applying these tools in their life. Extremely grateful to have been a part of this session and to have shared in the wisdom of Chris’s insights.”

VANESSA GILLRegional Manager, Cisco ANZ

He’s an expert on shifting his comfort zone, and it’s clear through his public speaking that he is right in his comfort
zone. He teaches on finding your greatest potential, and coming from such a legend as Chris, I was left feeling empowered to evaluate where in my life I could more intentionally “dial it up” and follow my passions. If there’s
ever an attitude for gratitude that should be shared on a big stage (or virtual event), then Chris’ story is one for the
records. This was one of our most successful talks at Salesforce.”

KELLY COWDEN Industry Events & Sponsors, Salesforce

Chris’ story is one of powerful and lasting selfdetermination which was perfectly timed given the personal and professional challenges we are all facing during the global lock-down. The talk is on-point,
impactful, inspiring and would be likely to benefit any team hoping to gain perspective on where they are at
present and how to not only survive, but how to thrive, in the face of change.”

ROBERT BAIGRIE CFA Head of Developed Markets, Asia Pacific Conservation International

Chris has to be one of the most interesting people on the planet. His 10 Tools Talk on dealing with Isolation is so
timely and was extremely helpful for all of us in our team, given the current events. Our team came away from the talk energized, with some valuable tools we can apply right now to our lives and with a fresh perspective. Our only wish is that we could have had several more hours to hear more of Chris’ stories from his various adventures.

ERIC NOETH -Principal, Advent International

His incredibly inspiring talk stuck deeply in my mind and motivated me to: get back into fitness, take on intentional nutrition for health rather than just pleasure, re-engage in the practices that put my feet and mind back on the ground so I can be present and in the moment by moment excellence of our human experience (My wife and family thank him). I take my hat off to Chris and thank him for the gift of his boggling and articulate story of how far beyond the place where we usually stop in life, we really can go.”
