Never pushy. 

 I was amazed at his ability to grasp concepts and reframe them. Also, he was brave and straightforward in his advice but never pushy. A true pleasure to work with and the results have increased my results and those of others I've suggested seek his help. I can't speak highly enough of his work or its value!

So thankful for your wisdom, Chris!

I had never pitched before - and now, my company was entered in the largest and most lucrative pitch competition in the world...I had been at Flux Works for two weeks when we started working with you. On my two-month anniversary, we won the Rice Business Plan Competition. It has been a wild ride, and I never would have made it without your help and coaching!

A Presentation that Changed My Life.

Chris Westfall helped me to develop and deliver the presentation that changed my life.

These days asking for someone’s attention for more than 10 seconds is asking a lot! Doing so in the TV series “Shark Tank”, in front of 5 very successful business people is something more than a challenge!

Strategies with a Difference. 

Have you ever interacted with marketing and branding experts who offer wildly creative possibilities for what your business could look and feel like?

Chris is not that type of branding expert.

He's better.

Like No One Else. 

Chris has a gift.


That gift is the ability to immediately connect with people and share a compelling story with them in a way that engages and entices them to hear more. Another key point: What makes Chris unique is his proficiency in teaching that skill to others.

Executive presence, for Salesforce.

People in my company are always talking about it. When you asked them what executive presence is they couldn't really define it. They could sometimes point to someone and say "that person has it", but it was a very elusive concept. That is until I met Chris, and took his class on executive presence and communication. I use the principles that Chris taught every day and not just in my professional life either.

Very Engaging!

Chris has a true gift for helping people tell their story and clearly articulate their message while evoking the desired response from the audience.

I witnessed presenters who were confident in their delivery, and consistently told their story, after working with Chris.  The end result is a true testament to his work.
