How’s your elevator pitch? Chris Westfall has created multi-million dollar revenue streams for companies on four continents, with innovative new strategies on leadership communication. As the US National Elevator Pitch Champion, he’s coached clients onto Shark Tank, Shark Tank Australia and Dragon’s Den, helped entrepreneurs to raise millions from investors, and successfully re-branded products and services around the globe. His keynote presentations help organizations to understand the new rules of engagement: an authentic persuasion that’s not pushy, “sales-y” or fake.
He’s the producer and co-host of The 118 Pitch Course with Bloomberg TV’s Jeffrey Hayzlett, and an award-winning instructor at a top 10 MBA program. A coach to authors, television correspondents and executives, his strategies have helped raise over $30 million for student start-ups, launching over 50 businesses and creating hundreds of jobs.
Originally from Chicago, Chris resides in Houston, TX with his wife and two daughters, and is an avid supporter of the performing and visual arts.
