Chris Tuff is a bestselling author and highly sought-after keynote speaker. Chris began his career as a pioneer in the social media marketing space, becoming one of the first marketers to work directly with Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook advertising. Chris was also one of the first to film a “viral” video, an honor that landed him on the front page of The Wall Street Journal and as a guest on Good Morning America.
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.
During the pandemic, Chris shifted his focus toward making 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.
He’s a graduate of Vanderbilt University and lives in Atlanta with his wife and two daughters. Outside of work, Chris loves kiteboarding, travel, and Air Jordans.
