Meet Chris Balish
This tall, polished, and smooth Ivy League graduate looks and speaks like the CEO or CTO of a Fortune 500 company.
Chris has fifteen years’ experience in communications and live broadcasting for The Walt Disney Company, ABC, Time-Warner, Gannett, AMC Networks, and others. He has been the emcee or keynote speaker at more than 200 live events, awards shows, corporate meetings, conventions, and conferences.
Chris has also appeared on-air during hundreds of live television broadcasts, including on NBC’s Today Show, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, The CW Network, NBC News, TV Guide Network, Discovery Networks, Extra, AMC, HDNET, NPR’s Morning Edition, Dish Network, KABC-TV Los Angeles, WABC-TV New York, WLS-TV Chicago, and many more. Chris can handle anything that comes his way on TV or on stage at a live event.
Chris was an NCAA collegiate athlete and varsity letterman on the Dartmouth College football team, but he’s no meathead. Chris is a bestselling author of four books, including a 2015 Wall Street Journal bestseller about using social media as a tool for business-to-business sales. Chris has won seven regional Emmy Awards for his work as a TV news anchor and broadcaster. And did we mention he’s pretty much the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet? Chris is based in Los Angeles.
“Chris is a fun, funny, high-energy speaker who truly inspired our employees and partners. He really connected with the audience and motivated them to take action.”
Mike Slavich, Director of Sustainability, Warner Bros. Studios
