Unleash the Power of Authentic Connection
Chris Tuff Bio
Chris Tuff is a bestselling author and highly sought after keynote speaker who has presented for Nike, Harvard, Delta, Verizon, Amazon and several other Fortune 100 companies. He began his career as a pioneer of the social media marketing space starting in 2006, becoming one of the first marketers to work directly with Facebook as well as helping them build many of their local-at-scale products for brands like Toyota.
His first book, The Millennial Whisperer, is a USA Today bestseller and has gone on to sell more than 100k copies which 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.
During the pandemic, 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.”
Chris is a graduate from Vanderbilt University and lives in Atlanta with his wife and two daughters. He loves kiteboarding, travel, and Jordan 1’s.
