- Chris Brogan, President, New Marketing Labs, LLC

C.C. is a dynamic, informative and inspirational speaker. Students and instructors alike responded to his passion and energy, and all were impressed by his knowledge and experience. Every educational institution should give their students the opportunity to be inspired by C.C.

- Candace Alcorn, Program Director, Internet Marketing Programs, Full Sail University

Lots of speakers are knowledgeable about their subject, but what sets C.C. apart is the passion and energy he brings to any talk, both in person and online -- say, in a webinar. (Which, by the way, is not easy to do.) If you want someone to inform your audience, hire any old speaker. But if you want someone to also ignite and inspire, hire C.C.

- Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer, MarketingProfs

CC brings a warmth and sense of place to each of his speaking engagements. As one of New Hampshire's native sons, I was honored to have him as one of the featured speakers at Social Media Breakfast NH in the Upper Valley. Not one to make a cookie cutter presentation, he created an intimate atmosphere of fun and learning for the attendees that kept the buzz going long after he was done. If you haven't had a chance to hear CC Chapman speak, you need to put it on your conference Bucket List.

- Leslie Poston, Founder, Uptown Uncorked

I am part of the small team within my company working on developing strategy, policy and tactics to get started with social media. While researching social tools for business, I invited the Senior Vice President of Communications to attend C.C.'s Facebook for Business Webinar and she left the room more enthusiast about social media than I've ever seen her before. She was furiously taking notes, smiling and commenting the entire time on the great information he shared. She's now a believer. We used much of C.C.'s advice in our Facebook launch and feel confident he provided us with true best practices for success online. C.C. has a gift when it comes to explaining social tools for business, sharing relevant examples to illustrate key ideas and engaging his audience. He's definitely got the chops to teach us all a thing or two.
