Christopher Fairbank grew up in upstate New York and was adopted at the age of 5 into the Fairbank family with 6 other siblings. Christopher found his passion for ballet dancing at the age of 11.

After a serious car accident at the age of 12, he was unable to walk for 6 weeks. He had been told that he would not be able to walk again, let alone dance again. With hard work, vision, and determination, Christopher was up and walking and back in the ballet studio eight weeks after the accident. He not only became a professional ballet dancer but also danced all over the world. He was a soloist and principal dancer and rose to the ranks of première danseur. He danced for three consecutive presidents of the United States of America and went on to win a gold medal at an international ballet competition.

Christopher created a process he calls “reshape the box of business”. This process teaches business leaders how to implement strategies and new perspectives that will benefit you as a business leader and your company in three key areas: how to develop employeeshow to retain employees, and  how to innovate to stay relevant. He also addresses the unique challenges distinctive to leadership, such as the ability to lead with integrity and define/implement forward-thinking strategies.
