Pam Boney, Founder
Founder and Principle Partner, & Expert in Personality Evolution for Startups, High-growth companies and ExO companies.
Chris is one of my favorite clients of all time. He's super smart in the financial realm of business and is a great leader. His experience i ... n online education is spectacular and he would make a great advisor to anyone in or near that space. He helped his last company raise a substantial round of funding which is no small feat.

Chris is a master of leadership development. His ability to empower people creates a positive culture built on trust and respect. He never a ... sks you to do something that he isn't willing to do himself. His knowledge and understanding of higher education is unparalleled. Being strategic is one thing, but Chris is able to be strategic while constantly pushing for innovation and improvement. They say that you should strive for your people to Respect, Trust and Like you, in that order. The best part about Chris is that he realizes that Respect and Trust are the foundation. If you build trust and earn respect, more times than not, people will like you and they will stand by you no matter what the odds.
