Leading the Digital Transformation of PR & Public Affairs

Invite Me to Speak at Your Event


Keynotes / Panels / Seminars / Workshops / Webinars

Whether I’m speaking to an arena full of thousands of people or leading a small group discussion, I bring unique perspectives and valuable insights sprinkled with a generous sense of humor.

If you are interested in having me speak to your organization or at an event, please contact me via email with details.

What I Talk About

With my diverse background in business, technology, and communications, I’m at home speaking on a wide range of topics. Since I got my start on Capitol Hill, I can also explore the intersection of those subjects with politics and government.

I’d be happy to talk to find a topic tailored to the specific needs of your event, but below are some sample topics to help guide your thinking.

PR agency owners and executives know how to communicate effectively, but often they can use help in the business side of their jobs. I offer practical approaches to generate growth and improve profits. Leveraging my own experience as an entrepreneur and agency leader, I explore common challenges, avoidable pitfalls, and overlooked opportunities.

Every entrepreneur has failures — and I’m no different. I enjoy sharing the lessons of those failures with business leaders and entrepreneurs and showing them how to tease out valuable insights from their own.

Where I Speak

I have spoken in a wide variety of venues, including public and private events. I often speak at conferences for trade associations, in academic settings, and for employees at private companies.

What People Say About My Speaking

“When it comes to digital communications, especially those involving social media, I can’t think of anyone who knows as much as Chip about the practical side of what to do and how to do it. He’s a maven, an expert, and all-around big thinker … Chip would make a good speaker at your conferences.”
– Don Bates

“Chip perfectly complemented his counterparts on the panel, who came from the Washington Post and the Huffington Post, and his expert analysis was perhaps rivaled only by his accessible and engaging delivery.”
– Menachem Wecker
