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.
