Christopher Ratcliffe

Chris owns a management and marketing consulting firm, Triple M Productions, which he co-founded in 2002. He spent years working in the broadcasting industry and is the former Vice President of MGP Media, a unit of Merv Griffin Productions. In the classroom, Chris focuses on creating a highly interactive environment for his students with exercises that stimulate critical thinking and a greater understanding of the course material. He believes strongly that the greatest lessons come from one's own attempt at complex problem solving. One of his favorite quotes is from James Thurber: “I’d rather know some of the questions than all of the answers.” He occasionally teaches business classes to medium and maximum security prisoners at the RI Adult Correctional Facility in Cranston RI.
