Jeff Bond

As the CEO of Chat With Leaders Media and Executive Partner at People-First Elevation Team, I lead a dedicated team specializing in thought leadership development, stakeholder engagement, and effective global communication. We excel in producing corporate podcasts, meetings, and events to drive customer and team member acquisition, retention, and engagement. Additionally, we provide speaker coaching to empower thought leaders within our clients' organizations.

My approach is grounded in Conscious Capitalism, fostering leaders with a values-driven, pro-capitalism perspective. I firmly believe in business's transformative power, not only as a commercial venture but as a catalyst for lasting social and generational impact.

Beyond my professional role, I cherish my most significant leadership role as a father to three children, alongside my wife Katie. This personal aspect deeply influences my professional path, aligning my business strategies with family values, faith, and community service in Atlanta, GA.

In today’s episode, Jeff Bond chats with Patty Tucker, Founder and Senior Strategist of Treehouse Counsel, an Atlanta-based communications consultancy helping intentional leaders turn stakeholders into believers and advocates. Treehouse Counsel partners with business leaders who want objective senior counsel without adding the complexity and agenda of a full-time CCO or major agency.

Patty talks to Jeff about the importance of asking and listening to your stakeholders, defining and standing behind your values, and how shifting the values of your business towards conscious capitalism can positively impact culture, the bottom line, and beyond in your business and the world.
