WHATEVER IT TAKES
I HELP PEOPLE ENDURE LIFE'S CHALLENGES WELL SO THAT THEY CAN LIVE WITH CONFIDENCE, HOPE, AND A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Chris's message transcends our educational focus and touches the core of our humanity. In the rush of life it can be difficult to remember to actually live. Regaining our focus on what truly matters was a message that reached our teachers and students alike.

Chris found his passion and purpose as a motivational speaker after his fifteen-year-old son, Tyler, died after a devastating seventeen-month battle with terminal brain cancer. Chris is passionate about sharing the life lessons he learned during those seventeen months and the difficult months and years that would follow.
Chris is a former executive of a global fortune 500 company and is the founder of Whatever It Takes, The Tyler Hallsey Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to finding a cure for the disease that claimed his son.
Seven months before Tyler passed away, he expressed his wish to Chris that the #whateverittakes movement he started never ends. Chris fulfills that wish through his work at The Tyler Hallsey Foundation and speaking engagements.
Chris now focuses his time on family, Tyler's foundation, spreading the life-changing message of self-belief, hope, and optimism authored by his son. Chris’s unique background provides him the ability to speak to a diverse audience, from corporate America to community organizations.
Chris has a tremendous ability to connect with an audience and share the #whateverittakes movement started by his son.
