The Speaker

Born in Lafayette, LA, Chris Hilliard is an author, entrepreneur, certified diversity professional, and thought leader. Of all his responsibilities, none is better than his role as a girl dad to his beautiful daughters and husband to his amazing wife. After finishing up at UL, where he primarily studied mass communications, Chris came to Baton Rouge and later graduated from Southern University’s MBA program. While in graduate school, Chris co-founded a tech start-up called Suds Laundry Services, which is an on-demand app that provides pickup and delivery of laundry and dry cleaning services.

After receiving his MBA, Chris went on to work as a Human Resources professional for one of the nation’s top health insurance providers. After establishing a full-functioning operation for Suds, releasing a book, and gaining corporate and strategic experience, Chris chose to leave the workplace to foster his own. His book, entitled “Seize the Day”, details some of his life experiences and the things and people that got him to where he is today.
