I'm excited about the wave of new products being released to convert our residences into "smart homes." Watching the space for the last few years has been exciting. While I enjoy bleeding edge technology, when it comes to my home I usually prefer to wait and let others be the first movers in the space. When...
Prince died and I'm positive he had more to create and do in his life. Death is coming for all of us and none of us know when we'll take our final breaths and that is why I hit record today so that you could listen to Managing the Gray #147. Links from the show. 30...
Photo by Valerie Jardin. There will be two songs played at my funeral. ‘Amazing Grace’ on the bagpipes and ‘Sometimes It Snows In April’ by Prince. Thursday as I closed my lecture at the end of class, my inbox was in the background and the top email’s subject line read “Prince Dead at 57” and...
Every day I see people with one hand on the wheel of their car and the other on their phone. They try to pay attention to the road, but every so often they'll drift, swerve or slow down. It is obvious they can't pay attention. Every study has shown that it is not possible for a...
The outdoors are where I'm happiest and over the years I've had adventures of all sorts and in every sort of weather. One of my favorite activities is canoe camping, where rule 1 is that you want everything to stay dry. This photo is my view on a week long paddle in the Boundary Waters with...
Dogs have a way of becoming an integrated part of yours where it is hard to remember life without them. Today marks a year since Nadia's 'rescue day' and in some ways it feels much longer and at the same time like yesterday. Roxie passing occurred in the middle of dark days for me. On top...
SocialGood.Club is a new venture that I'm the Co-Founder of with my dear friend Brad Powell. The conversations began last year as we both found ourselves walking a career path motivated by doing more good in the world. We both have years of experience conceiving, developing and executing marketing initiatives. The amount of content we've created...
Technology empowers us to do amazing things. We can connect with people around the world. We can form businesses together. We can create together. But, with all the technology around us, many of you are losing your way and giving in to the automated tools to run your lives. Yesterday, I added SocialGood.Club to my LinkedIn profile and...
Another morning starts with the news of another attack. They've become too common and with the global climate as it is, I don't see them slowing down. My heart aches. My brain goes into overdrive. Of course at the same time I think about my kids and my family. We've talked about how to react and what...
SXSW is a festival of culture and creativity. My words, not theirs. Up front, know that I'm an Advisor to SXSW. This means that every year I set aside several hours and go through and judge panels. In return, I'm given a free badge to attend. All other costs are on my dime. I know that...

When asked what I do my current answer is, “I create, teach and motivate people to do more good in the world.”
Of course, that doesn’t cover all that I work on professionally and personally, so that is why I created this page.
Official bios and head shots can be found below.
Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…
With over twenty years of marketing, online media and community building experience I have the skills and experience to help your organization no matter the size. Previous clients have included The Coca-Cola Company, American Eagle Outfitters and HBO.
I focus on social good/impact marketing, content marketing and brand strategy. My favorite clients are NGOs, nonprofits or brands looking to make a difference in the world.
Feel free to double check my credentials on LinkedIn.
Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.
If I had to choose a style, I’d say my photos are a mix of documentary, travel and lifestyle photography. While I may not enjoy taking head shots, I love to shoot faces. I rarely go anywhere without a camera in my hand and I’ve been fortunate to see my photos on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
I’m currently shooting with a Samsung NX1 and a Chroma 4k Drone.
I’m happiest when on stage educating and inspiring an audience of any size, anywhere in the world.
I have spoken at everything from large international events, corporate retreats and at special gatherings of unique individuals. If you need someone who will inspire, educate and entertain your audience I’d love to chat.
I believe in using my skills, time and voice to champion causes that are important to me. I’m especially interested in anything military, dogs or children focused.
On top of all that I’m a proud life long New Englander who was born and raised in New Hampshire, but now resides outside of Boston.
I married my high school sweetheart, have two amazing kids and love being a dad.
I’ve been online since 1989, began blogging in 2002 and podcasting in 2004.
Previous endeavors I created include Accident Hash, Passion Hit TV, Digital Dads and The Advance Guard.
Tattoos, travel and the outdoors turn me on. There are fewer things more perfect than a well done cocktail, a delicious meal or live art of any sort. I love my GORUCK, Field Notes and am a proud Misfit.
To understand me is to understand that I try to live a purposeful life every day that is full of adventure, love and making the world around me a better place for all.
C.C. Chapman describes himself as a New England raised storyteller, explorer and humanitarian. Others have described him as a thought leader in the online marketing space, a grounded futurist and one the nicest guy on the Internet. Over the years of his career he has worked with a variety of clients including Nike, HBO, American Eagle Outfitters, ONE, Verizon FiOS and The Coca-Cola Company.
He is the co-author of the International bestseller Content Rules and is also the author of Amazing Things Will Happen. He travels the world speaking in front of audiences to do more in the world and how to understand content marketing better. C.C. has taught classes for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and now as an adjunct professor at Bentley University (where he also graduated from).

C.C. serves as the Chairman of the Board at Wediko and serves on the board of The Hockey Foundation. He happily lives in the woods outside of Boston with his loving family. Find out more at CC-Chapman.com
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more multi-faceted or enthusiastic creative/strategic partner in the marketing and content creation fields. This greatly hails from C.C.’s unstoppable combination of marketing experience and savvy (which a great many professionals claim to have), and incalculably valuable “on the ground” knowledge and insight as an influential content creator himself (which a great many professionals do not). The result is a best-of-both-worlds mashup of marketing expertise.
C.C. Chapman sports the pro cred to be a talker (working closely with such clients as American Eagle Outfitters, Coca-Cola, HBO and Warner Bros.), and the passion and gumption to be a doer (creating content for the emerging Online Dad market, marketing professionals, music fans and more). He’s helped create, manage and execute ambitious online and offline marketing campaigns for startups and multinationals — and has the invaluable good sense to know which outreach strategies work with audiences, and which ones fall flat.
He authoritatively speaks your language. He speaks your CMO’s language. Most important, he’s fluent in your market’s language. It’s a killer double-chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination. Contact C.C. to learn how he can help your organization achieve its business goals. There’s even more to know about C.C. Chapman, if you want to read it — and you should. C.C.’s skills are an embarrassment of riches.
I’m involved with a lot of organizations and clients. I believe in being completely transparent and open about everything I’m working on. I’ll do my best to keep this updated and of course will clearly disclose relationships in any post that require them.
I am open to being pitched and invited on press trips.
Companies do send me items in the hopes that I will review it or share with my community. If you send me something it does not guarantee a review.
With that in mind, my mailing address is:
