Chris Palmer - Personal Profile

For over 3 decades my life was very centered around my work, career, and executive growth.

I have reached a stage in my life where I can share, support and give back.  This extends beyond my professional life and ability to support charities financially and into my private space. 

My life has been changed by my volunteer work. I strongly believe that living by your values makes you a better person.

Undoubtedly, this has made me a better man, husband, father and coach.
