Hi, I’m Chris Thompson and it’s nice to meet you. I’m an experienced business executive and author who has lived in Atlanta, GA for over a decade, but I’m originally from Ft. Lauderdale, FL. With over 25 years of leadership experience in diverse industries, including e-commerce, technology, and telecommunications, I’ve held positions such as Director of Marketing (both digital and traditional) and Director of Business Development in various organizations.
As an author, I’ve written several books on business strategy, management, and leadership that are highly regarded for providing practical and actionable insights into the complex world of modern business. I’m known for my ability to explain highly technical processes in simple, easy-to-understand terms, enabling readers to apply my insights to their work.
Throughout my career, I’ve delivered impressive results in competitive industries. For instance, as Director of Business Development for a technology company, I played a pivotal role in growing revenue by over 233% in just three years, taking it from $15 million to $50 million. I’ve also led organizations through major strategic alliances and have extensive experience in developing and executing effective business strategies.
As a highly sought-after speaker and consultant, I work with organizations of all sizes to help them achieve their strategic goals and optimize their performance. I hold several Google and Microsoft Ads certifications, including Analytics and Ads (Search, Display, and Shopping) certifications, demonstrating my expertise in leveraging technology to drive business growth. I’m committed to staying up-to-date on the latest trends and best practices in business management and regularly attend conferences and workshops to expand my knowledge and expertise.
