Chris J Reed
3 Time #1 Best Selling Author
With over 1,400 LinkedIn Recommendations Chris is the world's most recommended keynote speaker, CEO, entrepreneur and bestselling author on LinkedIn. He is also probably one of the most talked-about and infamously known as "The Only CEO With A Mohawk", recognised globally.
Chris achieved notoriety when he was fired from his first job in Singapore for writing a blog about taxi drivers, appearing on the front page of every newspaper and featured in every media outlet. Chris though used this name recognition to build his personal brand and Black Marketing into the world's leading LinkedIn Marketing firm.
Mumbrella described him as "Opinion splitting", "Controversial" and "The Most Colourful Founder" and Channel News Asia said he was too "Incendiary" to have on.
Entrepreneur Organisation, British Chamber of Commerce and others all banned him for selling his SME service to fellow members, as any good entrepreneur would do and Prime Time Women's Association, ANZA and Australian Chamber of Commerce amongst others called him "too controversial".
As Oscar Wilde said 'The only thing worse in the world than being talked about is not being talked about.'
Chris's Grandad told Chris that "it's who you know, not what you know" and Chris uses LinkedIn to accentuate this, meeting people he meets online, offline.
Chris is a serial, global entrepreneur having created and sold marketing firms in Europe and now in Asia from his home, Singapore. He loves the place so much that he renounced his UK citizenship and is now a fully-fledged Singaporean citizen.
