About Chris Tuff - Keynote Speaker on Culture & Connection, Best-selling Author of "The Millennial Whisperer"

Chris Tuff is a bestselling author and highly sought after keynote speaker who has presented for Nike, Home Depot, Verizon, and several other Fortune 100 companies.

He began his career as a pioneer of the social media marketing space, becoming one of the first marketers to work directly with Facebook on advertising.

His first book, The Millennial Whisperer, is a USA Today bestseller that explores the importance of empathy and relationships in the workplace, and it equips leaders with tools to attract and retain young talent through genuine connection. A global movement soon followed, as Tuff shared lessons on empathy and genuine connection at work on some of the largest stages in the world including such Fortune 100 companies as Nike.

In the interests of making a more immediate impact on ROI, Chris shifted his message to include genuine connections outside of the office, which resulted in publishing his most recent book, Save Your Asks. The book shares interviews and stories from some of the world’s greatest leaders and entrepreneurs about using authenticity and connection to become better salespeople and networkers.

In 2021, Tuff shifted toward connections outside of organizations in writing his latest book, Save Your Asks. He’s interviewed some of the world’s greatest leaders and entrepreneurs and is publishing this handbook to equip everyone with the tools to become better salespeople and networkers through a focus on authenticity and connection. In this book, he highlights real world examples of “askholes” and such sales techniques as “shawshanking.” Tuff

He’s a graduate from Vanderbilt University and lives in Atlanta with his wife and two daughters. He loves kiteboarding, travel, and Air Jordans.
