Full Bio

Few stories are as inspiring and moving as motivational speaker Christopher Gardner’s. Gardner rose from homelessness to become the owner and CEO of Gardner Rich LLC. Author of the autobiography, The Pursuit of Happyness, a New York Times and Washington Post #1 best-seller, he is also the inspiration for the acclaimed movie The Pursuit of Happyness, for which Will Smith, starring as Gardner, received Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and Academy Award nominations.

His newest book, Start Where You Are: Life Lessons in Getting From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be was released in 2009 and instantly hit the New York Times Best-Seller List.

Always hardworking and tenacious, a series of adverse circumstances in the early 1980’s left Christopher Gardner homeless in San Francisco and the sole guardian of his toddler son. Unwilling to give up Chris Jr. or his dreams of success, Gardner climbed from the very bottom to the top of the financial industry ladder.

Surmounting acute obstacles throughout his life, Christopher Gardner is an avid professional speaker, sharing with his audiences the keys to self-empowerment, and the message of beating the odds and breaking cycles. Gardner is also a passionate philanthropist committed to many charitable organizations.
