Keynote Speaker







 “Tuff Harris’ speech has helped build my motivation and excitement for this year at college. God used his speech and his passion to speak into my life and remind me of the importance of making godly decisions every day.”

– Tracy (College Student)

Tuff related to the students with a positive message of hope, inspiration, and motivation that struck a chord.  Students are still talking about Tuff and his message, and still wearing the One Warrior bracelets a month after Tuff’s visit.”

“Many of my staff members commented that Tuff’s presentation was the best teacher inservice they have ever experienced. Tuff said exactly what the students needed to hear. The way Tuff interacted with each student was fantastic.  He made each person feel special.”

I heard Tuff Harris present as the closing keynote speaker at a Leadership Montana event – he captivated the capacity crowd for an hour weaving personal stories and relevant lessons for success personally and in business. 

– Jackie

The response was stellar – extremely positive, thought-provoking, and inspiring – from all ages.  Tuff tailors his messages and presentation style to connect most effectively with each audience. His messages are powerful, his style engaging, and his stories and lessons leave participants thinking differently.

Although his actual name is Chester, he’s been known as “Tuff” since an infant because of all he’s been through.
