Dr. Chris Witt

  Professional Profile

DR. CHRIS WITT, of Witt Communications, provides coaching, training, and consulting for professionals who want to get better results from their speeches and presentations. Chris combines a background in counseling, ministry, and education with advanced training in communications, public speaking, and emotional intelligence.

His most recent success was with the new CEO of a large healthcare provider who was thinking of resigning since her position required her do so much public speaking. After only one session with Chris, she gave a presentation that she was proud of. Within one month, she spoke without notes and without fainting dead away in front of 500 people at the organization’s 20th anniversary celebration. She received a standing ovation, and she’s no longer thinking about resigning.

Chris received his B.A. from UC Santa Barbara and his doctorate in ministry from Catholic University. He taught graduate level courses at three universities and colleges.

Chris has published three books. His articles have appeared in Entrepreneur’s Business Start-Ups, The San Diego Daily Transcript, The Toastmaster, Kiwanis, and The Professional Speaker. He has published two workbooks and a CD program.

He is a graduate of Corporate Coach U, and his certification in emotional intelligence is through Behavioral Health Strategies. Chris speaks throughout the United States and Canada, and works with clients around the world. He is listed in The Who’s Who of Public Speaking. He is a founding member of CoachCentral™ and an associate of The Monger Company.
