Chris Widener is widely recognized as one of the top motivational speakers in the world today. He has spoken all over the world, such as Germany, Spain, Russia, China, Egypt, Singapore, Australia and, of course, all over the United States and Canada.


His clients are a “Who’s Who” of American businesses and organizations, including: General Electric, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, and the Harvard Business School.


Chris began a small publishing company called the American Community Business Network in the 1990s. Chris then changed the name to Made for Success and grew the company into a large business selling tens of thousands of personal development programs through large retailers such as Costco, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Target, and Barnes and Noble. He sold that business to his partner in 2009 to focus exclusively on speaking, writing, and coaching.
