What Other's Are Saying...

I am a 50-year-old Chief Executive Officer of a publicly held technology company. I just completed a weekend of personal development training with Christopher Hughes, and all I can say is WOW! He possesses that rare, yet beautiful blend of wisdom, insight, humor and communication, all honed to a fine skill by the real life trials he has had to endure and overcome. If you really, truly want your life to change, Christopher will help you. You will walk away from your time with him transformed.

Christopher Hughes is one of the most dynamic, inspiring and entertaining trainers/speakers I have ever heard. His perspective on life, which is from a difficult childhood filled with struggles, mixed with his experiences of building a highly successful multi-million dollar business, has inspired me to strive in excellence in my own life. Anyone who learns from him will come away with a real sense of self-worth, and a feeling of unlimited potential.
