“Working with leaders to lead better, get more done, and leave a legacy!”

A Retired Naval Officer, Chip has had two command tours and also served as the Director of Security for Naval District Washington, DC during September 11th – where he was responsible for the safety and security of 25,000 people on 9 different Naval Installations in the National Capital Region during one of our nation’s most trying times. Through it all, he was able to stay focused and maintain his sense of humor. That is something he prides himself on – keeping it “light” while getting the job done. Plus, through a very thick fog, people say he looks just like George Clooney.

A seasoned educator and trainer, he is currently adjunct faculty for two different universities, has authored six books and has taught over 20 different classes in leadership, management, human resource development, and organizational behavior.

Chip has earned the Certified Speaking ProfessionalĀ® (CSP) designation. Conferred by the National Speakers Association, the CSP is the speaking profession’s international measure of professional platform competence.

Only 12 percent of the 5,000 + speakers worldwide, who belong to the Global Speakers Federation, currently hold this professional designation.

Chip knows what it takes to connect, inspire, and keep people engaged! He has been fire tested and is mother approved!
