My grandfather designed, built and flew model airplanes. These were not from kits or out of a box. I remember the first time he handed me the controls and asked if I wanted to land one for him. What little kid would say no? Of course, I ended up crashing it. Fast forward to this morning...
Tonight I have the last Board meeting of the year for Wediko. I've served on the Board for a number of years and am now the President of the Board. Wediko Children’s Services is a non-profit organization committed to improving children’s lives. Using a strength-based approach, Wediko responds to the needs of children who face repeated...
Sadly, our country doesn't treat those who fight wars for us very well. All it takes is one look at the number of veteran focused charities to know that they exist to fill the gap left by our own government. I'm blessed to have friends and family who have donned the uniform to protect our country...
With #GivingTuesday landing on the first day of December this year, I thought I would focus my writing for the next little while on charitable organizations that I love and that I hope you'll take the time to find out more about and donate to if you have the means. I'm starting today with No...
As we Americans prepare to gather with our friends and family around Thanksgiving tables, I wanted to share several ways that you can give back during the holidays (and beyond) on your phone. Contact those you care about Our phones can do amazing things, but none more powerful than connecting your voice with those you care about....
Love it or hate it, Facebook is part of our lives. Even with all the other technology we have in our lives, most of us learn news from our family and friends on Facebook. As it becomes more integrated into our daily lives, it is apparent that it has also warped our basic human interactions. The...
Autumn is my favorite time of year in New England. The crispness in the air and exploding colors of the woods always makes me smile as I soak up every moment of it before Old Man Winter decides to roll into town. So when the invite came from The Hermitage Club to bring my family up and...
Growing up in the Boy Scouts, I've kept their motto as my own long beyond the last time I wore the uniform. "Be Prepared" means a lot of things. To me, being prepared means having the mental state to cope, knowledge to solve or skills to deal with whatever the world throws at you on any...
I hate to think about it, but the holidays are right around the corner and the other night my wife turned to me and asked, "Any ideas on what we are going to get the kids for Christmas?" Since my kids don't read my blog, I figured a quick post to give you ideas of great...
(photo credit: Asylum Entertainment) Last year the world watched in horror as an Ebola outbreak spread across part of the African continent. Through my work with ONE, I was well educated in what was going on, how it is spread and proper level of concerns. Sadly though, I wonder if enough people realize that it is isn't...
© Legend - A Handcrafted Misfit Theme
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 headshots can be found below.
Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…
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 Canon 80D, an iPhone 7+ and a Chroma 4k Drone.
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.
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).

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:
