AcknowledgmentWorks provides businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations with the skills and tools necessary to increase employee engagement, performance, and enhance organizational culture. Through a custom mix of consulting, training, and coaching services, we work directly with individuals and groups to promote effectiveness, generate tangible solutions for problems both large and small, and create concrete structures for action. Fostering an environment for growth, learning, and fun in all of its services, AcknowledgmentWorks is committed to transforming the way people work together.



Chris works with individuals and teams from around the globe and across industries to develop the critical skills and self-awareness needed to produce extraordinary results. With over 10 years of experience designing and leading programs that create understanding and trust between youth and adults from areas that have seen protracted international conflicts such as the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Northern Ireland, Chris has developed a keen depth of knowledge and insight into the dynamics of human relationships.

He has translated this knowledge into the development of AcknowledgmentWorks’ highly interactive consulting, training, and coaching services. Based jointly in Santiago, Chile and the United States, Chris is Harvard University trained in negotiation, certified in mediation, and has a BA in Global Interactions from the University of North Carolina at Asheville.
