Chris Tuff is a bestselling author and highly sought-after keynote speaker who has presented for Nike, Meta, Verizon, and Harvard.
He began his career as a pioneer of 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. A global movement soon followed as Tuff shared lessons on empathy and genuine connection at work on some of the largest stages.
In 2021, Tuff shifted toward connections outside of organizations in writing his latest book, “Save Your Asks.” He’s interviewed some of the world’s greatest leaders and entrepreneurs and is publishing this handbook to equip everyone with the tools to become better salespeople and networkers through a focus on authenticity and connection. In this book, he highlights real-world examples of “ask- holes” and such sales techniques as “shawshanking.”
He’s a graduate from Vanderbilt University and lives in Atlanta with his wife and two daughters. He loves kiteboarding, travel, and Jordan 1’s.
