Hi. My name is Chris. Since I'm the one writing this, I should probably ditch speaking about myself in the third person.

Ten years ago I created my first blog post. That post earned me $260,000 dollars.

I'm a new generation entrepreneur. I follow my bliss, which led me to create Silverback Social. We're a digital marketing agency.

I create things. In 2012 when I identified a problem that there was no major digital summit in Westchester, NY I produced one. A year later Forbes named it one of the "Four Lesser-Known Conferences That Deserve Your Attention in 2013," in 2014 they named it one of the "Must-Attend Marketing Conferences For Leaders In 2014." In 2015 Forbes named us one of the "Conferences That Will Keep You Ahead Of Marketing Trends This Year."

I have big ideas. I wrote a leading social media book titled "Your World is Exploding: How Social Media is Changing Everything - and How you Need to Change with it." It shot to #1 on Amazon's “hot new releases" in its first two weeks - all by using social channels to get the word out.

People trust my opinion and respect my social media presence. As a result, I regularly appear on CNBC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Good Day New York, & FOX BUSINESS's Varney &Co.

I've been quoted in Mashable, & have lectured to the United States Marines aboard the Intrepid Sea Air & Space Museum. I'm also one of the featured bloggers on Social Media Today.

I find joy in teaching. I keynote conferences & love helping people realize how powerful social media can be to create your personal brand, generate awareness & sales through social media channels. I've spoken to executives at the Philadelphia Eagles Stadium during their Partner Summit.

I believe in myself. I was selected by the Business Council of Westchester's 40 under 40, because I nominated myself. Seriously.

I purchased the URL 7 years ago. That got me national media attention, which helped me land a job at Buddy Media. Salesforce acquired Buddy Media for close to 1billion dollars 3 years later.

I believe any course is only as good as its instructor. That's never been more true than with Silverback Social University's "Remarkable You" course. Chris Dessi is fantastic and dynamic, but most importantly, it's easy to see he has a deep passion for helping people.
The course itself lays out some clear and straightforward ways to really hone in on growing your personal brand. It's a scary venture taking a step into the unknown, but I think "Remarkable You" really outlines a blueprint for navigating that scary world. Chris leverages his vast real world experience, both good and bad, to guide you in steps that will help you reach success.
I certainly recommend this course for those individuals looking to take the next step with their personal brand.

Chris recently spoke at our national sales meeting and could not have been more captivating, energetic, approachable, and dynamic. Not only did we learn best practices in managing social media as individuals and as a corporation, but experienced how contagious high-energy, enthusiasm, and a love of what you do, can be. Chris was outstanding and demonstrated how passion and excitement, along with hard work are necessary for success. If you're looking to motivate and energize your team, broaden your connections, and feel excited about doing it, I highly recommend inviting Chris to meet with your team. Thanks Chris!

I recently had the chance to meet and hear Chris speak at a sales conference for World Energy. I feel very lucky that I was able to have had that opportunity. In life there are rare people who are not only subject matter experts, but are incredibly enthusiastic and passionate about the topic as well. Chris is all of this and a lot more. After the meeting, Chris spent time talking with each of person who had further questions and comments.I shared with him a story of my own regarding a similar personal item that he had which had a deep sentimental value to him. The excitement and brotherly like hug/embrace that followed, spoke volumes to the type of positive and endearing person Chris is. I highly recommend that everyone find an opportunity to hear Chris, listen to his story, learn from him and if you're lucky, share a personal moment that you'll remember as a positive reassurance that the world is full of great people.

He kept the audience engaged at all times and his lecture was extremely interesting and informative! He is very knowledgable in social media and social networking. He really knew what he was talking about and explained it in a clear and understandable way. I would love to hear him speak again and definitely recommend working with him!

Chris Dessi is a GENIUS!! I have had the opportunity to attend three of Chris' presentations. Each time I learned something new. Learning the details of LinkedIn and Facebook for business were mind numbing. I was a sponge the whole time. It was amazing to see the value of social media in the sales world. Chris hit several key points about using social media efficiently and effectively. Thank you Chris Dessi for educating me in a world that I did not know existed, social media. The days of cold calling are dead. We can now think more creatively to prospect possible clients, outside of the box. Your methods blew me away. I applaud you as you are a mastermind of making social media work in the sales world. Thank you!! l

I attended a Social Media seminar that Chris gave in NYC at the Playroom Theatre in NYC. I really wasn't sure what i was getting myself into but i needed to know how social media truly works and how it fully benefits people in business. His approach was like no other, he didn't teach with tech terminology, his approach was emotional and his lesson was received with rave reviews. I was with a colleague, he and i would turn our heads, look at one another and nod in agreement. ( both of us thinking the same thing ) In three hours, Chris was able to take Facebook, LinkedIn and twitter, wrap it up in a simplistic user friendly manner and with no rah rah buy me attitude, got through my thick scull just how this works. Ask questions, help people, be an inspiration, educate and give people a reason to get to know you. People want to work with people they know, like and trust. With Chris's guidance and expertise, i walked out with so much joy in my head and heart, sent my very first tweet to him and he retweeted within 60 seconds! He gives and guides and i look forward to his continued support.. THANKS CHRIS, YOU ROCK!

Chris was a keynote speaker at the Foundation Center and I just wanted say THANK YOU to him for sharing his energy and knowledge with us. I was really inspired by his enthusiasm and impressive presentation. In fact, immediately after hearing him speak I called my intern and met him an hour later over coffee. I shared with him all the advice Chris gave us and now I am really letting him spearhead our social media networks. And, already we see a huge shift. Also, I took his advice about maximizing the potential of our FB page and guess what?!! Within 24 hours Green Generations went from having 57 likes to now 112!!! YAH! And it keeps growing! So exciting!! We now have at least a dozen people who we don't know at all, which is so very cool. Many thanks again!!

I have to say his “What You Need to Succeed in Social Media Today" presentation was one of the best I've sat in on – ever. Awesome energy, and the personal touch put it over the edge! That said, his PowerPoint is going to be a great addition to my toolkit as I continue to fight the good fight and change the culture of my organization. Evolve or Die, aye? BOOM!

Christopher spoke to the athletes at Loyola University last week. He gave great insights on how I can use social media to my advantage. When most adults speak to college students about social media, it is a huge list of “don'ts". Christopher instead explained all we can accomplish because we have the power to manage the technology we work with everyday. Beyond beneficial to my career management

Chris was incredibly knowledgeable about the social media world. I, for one, was the most skeptical about the whole social media thing, but after listening & working with Chris I have been shown the light. I couldn't believe he had me start Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ & Instagram (Chris, I promise I will sign up for Instagram )
I highly recommend Chris to come into your company or personally teach you what social media is, how it can help grow your business & open doors you would have never thought were possible.

Thank you,

As the Director of Sales, I am consistently looking for new ways to provide our sales team with the tools needed to help grow their business. Chris delivers! He truly engages his audience when he presents. While he was presenting his material, I was looking around the room and it was a very pleasing sight. All eyes were on him and lots of questions were asked. I would highly recommend that you contact Chris if you are looking to brand your business and increase sales by leveraging social media
