Entrepreneur, author, and speaker, Chris Dessi, joins host Deirdre Breakenridge on Women Worldwide. Chis is the founder and CEO of Silverback Social, an award-winning digital marketing agency in New York City. Chris is also the author of Remarkable You, Build a Personal Brand and Take Charge of Your Career. Chris is well known for his entertaining, customized and informative keynote sessions for corporate events and Universities. He regularly appears on CNBC, CNN, Fox News, and Good Day New York.
On the show, Chris reflects on a pivotal moment in his life. He shares a time when he hit a low point in his career and how his motivation and passion propelled him forward. In addition, Chris discusses what “people don’t tell you when you’re an entrepreneur” and gives advice on how to build a strong personal brand using his seven important pillars. Chris inspires Women Worldwide listeners to become the “biggest and baddest” version of themselves.
In 2012, Chris 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. The book shot to #1 on Amazon’s “hot new releases” in its first two weeks – all by using social channels to get the word out. Also in 2012, Chris identified a problem that there was no major digital summit in Westchester, NY. Chris produced this conference and in 2015 Forbes named his event as one of the “Conferences That Will Keep You Ahead Of Marketing Trends This Year.”
