Chris Fenning

Hi, I'm Chris. I'm a husband, father, and author, and I'm on a mission to make communicating at work simpler and more effective. Communication has a profound impact on the success of teams, projects, and careers. But professionals don’t always find it easy to communicate: messages don't get across, great ideas are buried in complex descriptions, and jargon fills our emails and meetings. I help solve all these problems with my books and training classes. It’s what I call the business of communication. I believe that having the right frameworks can make professional communication skills easier to master. My award-winning books and courses have helped over 50,000 people in more than 100 countries, and my articles have appeared in Harvard Business Review and other top publications. When I'm not working, you can find me walking in the countryside with my wife and daughter. All the best, Chris

Better communication, starting today

Be confident your message is clear, every time.
