Talk to people that Chris Krimitsos has spent any amount of time with and you’ll hear descriptions like “changemaker,” “motivator,” “catalyst for change,” and “inspiration.” Whether it’s a major corporation’s CEO or a solopreneur, Chris is passionate about being a difference maker. Unlike the featured guest who comes in and delivers a keynote and leaves, slipping out the back door like a national celebrity, Chris Krimitsos is the passionate professional who hangs around talking to anyone who wants his time – to listen, evaluate, and affect change. Chris brings the unique perspective of success from both sides of an event. He understands the challenges of the organizer that needs to move an audience, having himself facilitated over 2,000 events that have brought together business owners, toward economic growth, under the umbrella of Tampa Bay Business Owners, which he founded in 2008. That success regionally was the springboard to launching a national event, Podfest Multimedia Expo, which he grew to over 975 attendees in just five years, with an expectation of 1,500-plus in year six, thanks to his ability to communicate key messaging to that community. Channeling that energy into creating a documentary, now he is making an impact globally. Under the CK Productions banner, as a filmmaker and producer, Chris successfully birthed The Messengers: A Podcast Documentary, which obtained worldwide distribution and theatrical screenings. This after having hosted and produced two TV shows earlier in his career. Of note was one of those projects being archived in the Library of Congress. With a unique skill set programmed to stay out in front of rapid change, Chris Krimitsos – as a speaker, as a business leader, and as a source for growth – is empowering audiences toward better opportunities for succeeding in business in the 21st century. Episode Highlights: Chris shares some of the "cardinal sins" of event planning. Discover one of the biggest traps that promoters can fall into. Learn how to create clear guidelines for volunteers that will result in a positive experience for your guests. Hear some of the coolest stories that have happened during previous Podfest events. 3 Key Points: You don’t ever want to over set-up the room. Be honest about your event. Don’t embellish or lie.

Episode Highlights:    Trent Shelton How speaking helped Trent get really clear on what he was meant to do. How Trent used networking to kickstart his speaking career.

A few years later, a mutual friend bumped into him and asked Bryan to speak on the same stage as Josh. He’s constantly forcing himself to get better at public speaking.

Yayha’s advice for overcoming “imposter syndrome.” How the speed of imperfect action feeds into confidence and success. Why committing to less can grow your self-confidence.

Hi Travis! I love your podcast. I am a Realtor and am always seeking ways on how to improve my ability to serve my clients to the highest degree. Like Jordan, I am currently building my business brick by brick - with the exception this is the first time I am building a business - and have realized that there are key elements, such as networking, that in the long term makes or breaks a business. This segment was fantastic as it dawned on me that interviewing skills are just as crucial in your industry as for mine. Approaching anyone with the intention to build a relationship takes interviewing skills - I have never heard it put that way before. Perhaps a significant part of this skill is about being interested in the person, not interesting. I also loved Jordan's acronym of Always Be Giving! Thanks for providing a great resource. ~ Shelby
