"An overwhelming success!"
Project Management Symposium Program Manager, AT&T

"He offers that blend of style AND substance" Eric Welsh, Conference Director, ProjectWorld
"You were a hit! "

President, / Law Partnering Forum
"I view over 400 videos each year in hopes of finding the right speakers for just a few events. The vast majority of keynote speakers I see are about entertainment, not substance. Christopher Avery is definitely the exception. I have had the pleasure of working with Christopher on a number of events over the last year. He's consistently risen to the challenge, whether it's a workshop or a keynote. His presentation style offers that ever-elusive blend of style and substance.

Perhaps even more remarkable is that he's truly a pleasure to work with. He's embraced seemingly untenable changes time and time again with unflagging grace. Bottom line, he's a great person and a great speaker, and I can't recommend him more highly."

Conference Director,

"I highly recommend Christopher as a teacher and facilitator for your leadership development seminars. He is a pleasure to work with, he obviously cares about his clients and what he is doing, and he is an awesome communicator and teacher."
