Keynote Speaker Bio

Chris Field

CEO & Founder,  Mercy Project & Author, A Billion Hours of Good

Chris has been challenging complacency and disrupting the status quo most of his life. His most important disruption is Mercy Project, the non-profit he started to rescue children from human trafficking in Ghana, Africa. Its innovative approach has drawn international attention and earned the prestigious Norman Borlaug Humanitarian Award. To date, Mercy Project has rescued more than 150 children, returned them to their families, and provided them with education that will transform their future for generations to come. Field lives in College Station, Texas with his wife Stacey and their four young children.

At 19-years-old Field ran his first marathon, ran for mayor of his hometown (placing third out of five), and was hired to run a camp that hosted 600 inner-city kids each summer. If disruption was a stick of dynamite, his spark had officially been lit. Field has filled the years from age 19 to 37 with countless more disruptions. He ran another 20 marathons, started the #1 ranked marathon in Texas, raised millions for charities, wrote the most viral ice cream review ever, has taught a business class at Texas A&M University, set four Guinness World Records, and has coached 100 businesses on their use of social media.
