About Chris Graham
Chris is the Principal at TellPeople and has been a professional for over a decade. He’s twice been a lawyer: at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, in New York City, representing very large banks; and at Pape Salter Teillet LLP, in Toronto, representing Aboriginal governments across Canada.
Chris is the founder and principal of TellPeople. He’s a volunteer counsellor at Camp Ooch (a camp for kids with cancer). He’s an investor in Artery.is (think AirBNB for house concerts), and a popular storyteller and comedian on stages around Toronto.
Chris’s writing has appeared in publications in Canada and the USA and he formerly edited part of Canada’s leading legal encyclopedia. He can tell you what it’s like to ride a toboggan down a volcano, how cold it gets at night in the Syrian Desert, and what it smells like in Britain’s oldest library. He’s a mentor to students at Massey College, University of Toronto Faculty of Law, and Ryerson University.
Chris holds degrees from the University of Oxford (history), University of Toronto (law), and Acadia University (business). He is also a graduate of The Second City program in standup comedy.
