Why I Chose To Be Part Of The Women’s March

Men and women are different. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be treated equally. Around the globe this weekend, on all seven continents, millions of humans marched. Each who chose to show up did so for their own reasons. My reasons were simple. As a father, I marched to show my daughter that I support her. I wanted...

Family Fun at Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival

The beach is the last place I personally go for family fun during the summer. Sure, the ocean is beautiful and there is always endless people watching at the beach, but sitting on a blanket, melting in the sun is not my idea of a fun day. So, when I partnered up again this summer with...

Star Wars Celebration London 2016

Growing up, I always stopped in the toy isle to look at the latest Star Wars toys. I'd lust after them and check them out in detail since I rarely was able to bring one home with me. Hours were spent playing with the toys I did have. Grand battles were fought on my bedroom...

SXSW Was Exactly What I Hoped It Would Be

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...

ITS Tactical Muster IV in My Words

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...

WHY Would I Attend ITS Muster 4?

Twelve hours ago, I arrived home from ITS Muster 4 in Bridgeport, Texas. Put on by my friends at Imminent Threat Solutions, it is five day immersive weekend to learn new skills and immediately put them into practice. (that is me in the blue shirt in the middle of the photo above) There will be a full write...

Fun Times and Financial Learning at The Topsfield Fair

The Topsfield Fair is a New England tradition and one that after all these years I finally got to experience for myself. Sadly, the day started off wet and cold and we were not sure if we’d be able to make it or not. Thankfully Mother Nature decided to cooperate and as Emily and I...

Time For The Topsfield Fair

The Universe has a funny way of listening to what you want and delivering it in unique ways. At the beginning of the summer, our family put together what we called our “beach bucket list.” It included activities we wanted to do and places we wanted to go over the course of the summer. One that...

Family Fun Weekends at King Richard’s Faire

Growing up playing countless hours of Dungeons and Dragons, combined with a love of the theatre and Shakespeare gave me a love of renaissance faires. Over the years I've attended many of them and it has become a family tradition to spend a fall weekend at King Richard's Faire here in Carver, Massachusetts. Their media team...

Building Communities

We should all strive to be lifelong students and I was excited to spend Monday morning learning from Pamela Slim on her Indispensable Community Tour when it arrived in Boston. Pam is a friend and fellow misfit, so that alone made me want to go out and see her. But, there was more too it than that. Community...

Don’t Miss The WGBH FunFest This Saturday!

The Magic of Misfitcon

Magic is hard to put into words. How do you describe in an articulate fashion what occurs when a group of individual comes together to form a tribe that is nothing short of magical? I've been mulling over this since I boarded my flight home. Sure, my photo album captures some of the magic, but to...

The Once and Future PR Professional

Last night, I took part in a panel to discuss "The Once and Future PR Professional" put on by the Publicity Club of New England and hosted by SHIFT Communications. It was an intimate conversation that covered a lot of ground. I was honored to be on the panel with Steve Quigley from Boston University, Erica Seidel of The Connective...

Boston Ballet’s Thrill of Contact

A year ago, I had very little appreciation for ballet. I respect all forms of arts and creativity, but the ballet was one form that never completely clicked with me. But, after several invitations from the Boston Ballet to attend different shows, I've grown to enjoy ballet more than I imagined I ever would. Thrill of Contact...

Savvy Nonprofits Use Content Marketing to Raise Millions During Give Local America 2015

When Tenacity 5 Media inquired about hiring me to be part of the team for #GiveLocal15 I instantly said yes. Before that conversation, I had never heard of Give Local America, but this project would require me to use my storytelling skills to highlight, share and document the great work done by participating charities.

A Weekend in Wine Country Speaking at WTFconf

Spreading Social Good at SXSW 2015

Every March, a chunk of the Internet arrives in Austin, Texas for copious amounts of barbecue, frosty drinks and hopefully some mind expanding conversations. I’ve certainly got older as SXSW has grown and every year I look at my experience with a fresh set of eyes, while remembering what it use to be like. This year...

A Day at the NFL Offices With the #VZWBuzz Team

I'm part of a group of online insiders that Verizon gives access to news, technology and experiences. Last week a group of us from the east coast were treated to a day at the NFL Offices in New York City. As a lifelong football fan, I was excited about the location. Granted, we got bumped to...

Reflecting on MisfitCon

As the waitress sits me down at my booth at The Frying Pan, I giggle a bit at the table top advertising their "premium coffee." The nearby table has exceeded the Hawaiian shirt quota for the city as I hear one of them begin a story with, "that Montana boy that married the Eskimo girl..." The...

Headed to Misfit Con 2014

Tomorrow morning I'm headed to Fargo, North Dakota to attend Misfit Con 2014. I'm excited that I'll be able to check another state off my list and to see a town that I only know as snowy, full of a great accent and of course wood chippers. The excitement is even greater to be surrounded by...

Witches, Baseball and Beer With Team Lumia

Nokia is a company that understands how to work with influencers. Their approach seems to be to gather a variety of online influencers in a great city, bring them on a series of mini adventures and give them Lumia phones to document everything. Last year, I spent a weekend with them in Vegas and earlier this...

Bio

Sketch of C.C. Chapman by Hey Instigator!There are many aspects OF who I am and what I do. Putting together THIS PAGE is one of my least favorite things to write because talking about myself is not my idea of a fun time.

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…

Writer

I’m constantly writing and always working on my next book. You may have read some of my published works including Amazing Things Will HappenContent Rules or 101 Steps to Making Video Like a Pro.

Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.

Photographer

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.

My photos can be found on Instagram and Flickr.

Marketing Consultant

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.

Keynote Speaker

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.

Advocate & Volunteer

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.

I’m currently the President of the Board at Wediko, a member of the ONE Girls & Women Advisory Board, serve on the board of The Hockey Foundation and recently joined the No Kid Hungry Social Council.

Teacher

I’ve developed and taught courses for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and Treehouse. I’m also an Adjunct Professor of Marketing at Bentley University and hoping to do more teaching in the future.

 

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.

Fun Bio

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.
