Long Form: Chris Butsch is a best-selling author, speaker, coach, and globally-recognized authority on the Millennial generation. Known for his storytelling ability, high-energy stage presence, and immediately-actionable advice, Chris sheds light on the world’s most unique generation.

In 2014, at age 24, Chris was diagnosed with clinical depression. Learning many of his fellow Millennials (b. 1982-2000) suffered from the same state, he quit his job to study happines and the Millennial condition. Traveling the world, he interviewed hundreds of pyschologists, monks, millionaires, and Millennials in 31 countries, eventually publishing his findings in his first, best-selling book, The Millennial’s Guide to Making Happiness.

In 2017 he shifted focus to address the rift between Baby Boomers (b. 1946-1964) and Millennials in the workforce. Having establishing a network of 1000+ Millennial “spies” in companies with an uncanny ability to attract Millennials, he began discovering top strategies companies use to recruit, retain, and optimize Millennials.

By focusing on proven strategies, implementable within days, and typically free, Chris has been called “The Millennial Tony Robbins.”
