One reviewer writes: I was intrigued to hear from the widely celebrated speaker. He had just coached the A&M Pitch team to victory in the largest and most lucrative pitch competition in the world.

Chris quickly identified and articulated our strengths and key message better than we had managed to do on our own. We WON that competition, and I'm convinced our improved pitch was a big reason why.
