‘Well, it’s official. I hate Chris Cooper. I no longer have any excuses for all the different ways I procrastinate and then rationalise them. Chris’s talk was excellent – professional, engaging, thought provoking and personally challenging. He not only introduced us to sensible, actionable ideas that we can put in place straight away, he did it in a thoroughly entertaining way. A knock-out session’ David Abbot, Marketing Strategist

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.
Mike Ogilvie – National President Professional Speaking Association 2014/15
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.

Chris spoke recently at the www.BGIStrategy.com supercongress which was a stage full of the leading speakers in the UK. Chris was brilliant to work with, his subject matter fresh and his stage performance was incredibly well crafted, right down to one of the best matrix impressions I have seen on stage 😉

Chris is a fabulous presenter, speaker and all round great guy. He truly cares about you as a person and what you believe in and immediately puts you at ease. I was recently a guest on his Be More, Achieve More Radio Show and rather than feeling like I was being interviewed, Chris created an atmosphere that allowed us to have a very natural 2-way conversation and what’s more, it was fun. I have also heard Chris as a Professional Speaker – he is impactful, inspiring and engages his audience with his very warm and natural manner. If you haven’t yet tuned in or heard him speak, do so – you are missing a treat. Jo Simpson, Managing Director, Executive and Leadership Coach, Professional Speaker
