Talks to make you think. Talks to make you laugh. Usually both.

Chris is increasingly in demand as a speaker, offering a refreshingly different perspective on some traditional themes such as:

  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Creativity

... and his highly popular ‘signature’ talk, which inspired the book: “In business/life, are you the Sheep, the Shepherd or the Dog?”

Chris brought a lively breath of fresh country air to our breakfast meeting, sharing with us his many experiences as a shepherd and drawing analogies with the business world. His talk was illustrated with some fascinating and amusing video clips showing how his company challenges teams to test their own leadership and communication skills whilst herding sheep. The fact that many people remember Chris' talks bears testimony to its uniqueness and relevance, not to mention his humorous way of putting across extremely salient points to all audiences.
