Coaching Style and Expertise

"Without hesitation, I would recommend Chris as a skilled and energising coach to work with. Over the last 5 years, I have worked with a number of executive coaches and Chris is undoubtedly the best. He has exceptional people and communication skills and the combination of his easy-going style, insightful questions, and real business experience makes him very effective. He really assisted me, and I would highly recommend him".
