  • “I’ve now been on Chris Cooper’s podcast twice, and I wanted to say how impressed I am with his intelligence, knowledge, and professionalism. Chris doesn’t ask conventional interview questions. Instead, he asks questions and adds comments that help me better understand my own subject and get to my best ideas. He is exceptional at his craft.”

  • it is 200! Happy Podiversary, Chris – and thank you for every single one of them. The insights you and your guests have been sharing rival what one can learn in an advanced degree program, indeed! You and your guests, past and future, are most appreciated!

    Karsten Speckmann – Business Elevation Show Listener
  • “Few presenters can connect the fate of kidnapped penguins to enhanced business performance strategies so seamlessly.  Chris works on our post-experience graduate courses and helps us to bring practitioner issues into focus for students. Articulate and considered, Chris carefully weaves anecdotes from his extensive commercial experience and stories from his personal life, to offer a gentle critique on the state of contemporary management. Our students leave the room inspired to consider how they can play a part in elevating the importance of individual well being and the centrality of human relationships for the benefit of an organisation’s productivity.”

  • “It was a pleasure to be a guest on Chris´s Voice America show; I hope I was
    able to share a few nuggets from my experience in business. Chris – you are
    a natural communicator and connector.Chris kindly accepted an invitation to spend a couple of days with me after
    the show, to rekindle his connection with the Yorkshire Dales.  It was a
    pleasure to get to know Chris more and understand even more of what he
    offers his clients and, potentially, clients I work with too.It was a great investment of my time, understanding the dynamic and
    breadth of Chris’s range of skills. Chris is a ‘people’ person; he has an ability
    to get the heart of issues and help people work through these, both
    individually and as teams. I am really excited about exploring ways to work
    more closely with Chris in the future. I am also looking forward to reading his
    forthcoming book ‘The Power to Get Things Done’.If you want to ‘be more and achieve more’ you need to talk to Chris; he will
    make a difference in so many ways.”

  • ‘I am more than pleased to share my experience of the TEP programme. For me it has been an invaluable part of my own learning and development for several reasons. The books that we have studied have always resonated with the place that I have been at that time. To study a book with a group of like minded individuals, all professional and all keen to develop themselves and others has made me read with a depth that I would normally not use. The result being a richness of understanding that I can apply and want to apply, into my business immediately The guests that you have invited to to talk about their journeys have left their own gift with me – one of them being a depth and breadth of stories to illustrate points on my own programmes. And finally, for me the sense of not being alone, in my loft, in pursuit of my own personal success, but being able to feedback and to celebrate successes together. This is a fantastic community to belong and a commitment to my own personal success and to that of others. Thank you Chris for having and holding the vision’ Carroll Macey, Managing Director CM2C Change Management Consultancy (Nottinghamshire) http://www.cm2c.com.

  • I saw Chris Cooper here today, absolutely fantastic. I came away with a book full of notes. The bit that stood out was about who is to blame when it comes to not following your intentions when you are self employed. I just want to see him again.

  • I recently shared a stage with Chris, speaking at a Business Growth Conference in Mayfair, London.Chris had a tough job as the final speaker at the end of the afternoon, following a series of speeches from highly experienced conference speakers.The organisers were delighted with Chris – he did a splendid job reminding the audience that they only had themselves to blame if they left that conference and failed to take appropriate action. Using humour and pathos, Chris engaged with the audience and left everyone feeling upbeat and raring to go at the end of the day. I highly commend Chris to you as a speaker.

  • Chris has supported me over the last 12 months to develop my professional communication as a keynote speaker. This is an important area for the growth of my business. I am also gaining value from participating in his Achiever Programme for entrepreneurs. With Chris’s professional support during this period my speaking has improved significantly and I am delighted with how Chris has encouraged and guided me during this process.

    Stuart Pickles, Managing Director of Aim Higher Leadership and former CFO of Fosters.
  • I am delighted to make a recommendation for Chris, as the support I have received from him over the last 10 months has been exceptional! Chris came highly recommended, which I can now also endorse. I joined Chris’s Achiever Programme where he has supported me to develop my vision and strategy with great results. Chris is very authentic and a real entrepreneur, he is intuitive, honest, quickly identifies when your at your best and how to maximise your contribution. I have found Chris to be motivational, but also challenging at the right time. He is extremely personable, with a great network and someone who will maintain a long-term relationship with you. I would recommend Chris to entrepreneurs and corporate leaders for coaching, mentoring, team dynamics, stretching you and your business strategically!

  • Chris has and still is, having a profound impact on me personally and in the growth and development of my business. His blend of expertise and huge integrity create a thought provoking and stimulating combination. Chris generates sincere, considered and positively challenging feedback on personal and business development matters that will prove invaluable for any individual, business owner or leader looking to grow.

  • If you are in a leadership position, one of the big challenges is getting more from less. What Chris has brought to me personally and to Everards is to be efficient in my thinking, to ensure I prioritise with my team, evaluate very clearly what we are doing and as a result continuously grow. In these economic times, it would be easy to look at an engagement with Chris as a cost. I would encourage anybody to look upon it as an investment in that you will achieve more from less and will only understand what that means for you personally and your business more broadly via that engagement. For anyone out there looking to achieve more for less, looking to increase their profitability and value of their business, then Chris is a man to work with. He will deliver huge added value to your business.

  • Chris provided an incredible emotional intelligence program for my business. Chris delivered a series of eye opening sessions which enhanced the approach and style of our customer engagement. He also introduced a new positive and motivational language that empowered our people into making a difference. Relationships fos-tered after Chris’s guidance resulted in significant and measurable competitive ad-vantage. Many of the team wished they had received Chris’s input much earlier in their career. As a result of Chris’s contribution our business results improved significantly over the short and long term. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris to others.
