Since the publication of Younger This Year, Younger Next Year for Women and Thinner This Year, Chris Crowley has been in enormous demand as a keynote speaker, appearing before a wide range of groups, from corporate executives (including many YPO and WPO groups), to medical and wellness professionals to (his greatest thrill) all the generals in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Chris’s motivational talks convey the essence of his books, with all the passion, optimism, eloquence and humor that have made them national best sellers.
Corporations and Associations:
For top and middle level executive retreats, these talks outline the basic tenets of the Revolution In Behavior and Aging, but stress that institutions have a huge stake in spreading the word, especially at senior levels.
“This may be a bit of a surprise.” Chris says, “but ‘True North’ for great Corporations may be a high level of employee fitness and great health, especially at the executive level. People who “get it” are radically more energetic, more optimistic, more effective. Just plain better. Corporate leaders need to know about this stuff… for themselves and for their companies.” Customized ‘webinars’ and supporting materials for large employee groups are a possibility.
“These have been a mainstay and my particular favorites,” Chris says. “The audiences are smart, tough and passionately interested in a vigorous, effective life. They like to laugh, too, thank God, and they are great missionaries, once they’re convinced. Love ‘em. Amazing hosts, too. Some of my best trips… let alone speaking trips… have been to YPO/WPO events.”
Financial and Professional Groups:
Another mainstay of Chris’s speaking life is talks sponsored by leading financial advisors for theirclients…mostly high-net-worth individuals. Close behind come medical groups (from the Royal College of Physicians in Dublin to several hundred nurse-anesthetists in California), and lawyers (“peculiarly ‘my people’”, Chris says, “and they really need it, poor devils.”)
Women’s groups are rarer sponsors but, Chris says, they seem to get a particular boot out of the talks, “Maybe because they live forever – compared to men – and need this so that all those extra years won’t be a drag.”
