Dr. Uli Chi’s career is a testament to his unique approach to leadership. He has navigated the realms of for-profit businesses, nonprofit organizations, the theological academy, and the local church, gleaning a wealth of wisdom from each. As an award-winning technological entrepreneur, he founded a software company that developed 3-D virtual reality software, revolutionizing decision-making for consumers and businesses. His insight and experience are in high demand, with senior executives seeking his advice and multiple non-profits benefiting from his board service.

Currently, Uli holds key leadership positions in several prominent institutions. He is the board chair of the Virginia Mason Franciscan Health System in the Pacific Northwest. He also lends his expertise to the advisory boards for the Benaroya Research Institute and the Virginia Mason Institute, both in Seattle. At the Max De Pree Center for Leadership at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, he serves as the vice chair. Previously, he chaired the Board of Governors at Regent College in Vancouver, Canada. He was recognized as a Puget Sound Business Journal’s Director of the Year in 2023.

Uli’s passion for leadership extends beyond his professional roles. He actively shares his insights and knowledge through writing, teaching, and mentoring. As a Senior Fellow at the Max De Pree Center for Leadership and a Fellow of the Center for Faithful Business at Seattle Pacific University, he is at the forefront of leadership discourse. His book, The Wise Leader, published by Eerdmans in 2024, exemplifies his thought leadership. He also regularly writes for Fuller’s Life for Leaders daily blog, sharing practical wisdom for leaders. He contributes to the forming of leaders from around the globe through his teaching roles at Regent College’s Master of Arts in Leadership, Theology, and Society and Fuller Seminary’s Doctorate of Global Leadership program.

Uli has been part of his local Presbyterian congregation for over fifty years and has served that community in a wide variety of leadership roles.

Speaker Topic:
Though we are overwhelmed with information, we often struggle to find true wisdom. Yet those leading or mentoring others, whether in business or in spiritual life, must rely on wisdom’s guidance to lead with purpose and meaning. With decades of leadership experience in business, nonprofits, and Christian higher education, Uli Chi will help share about building this foundational virtue, teaching both young leaders and experienced leaders how to pass on the torch meaningfully.
