“A Chess Master’s Thinking Applied to Marketplace Calling”
Founder and CEO
Elliott Neff is the founder and CEO of Chess4Life, which exists to help students develop life skills through the game of chess. Elliott is a USCF (United State Chess Federation) National Master in Chess. Elliott has personally trained 10,000 students from beginners through national champions. He holds the Professional Chess Coaching Certification Level V, the highest awarded certification by the USCF. He is also the author of A Pawn’s Journey: Transforming Lives One Move at a Time (October, 2018), a novel inspired by true-life stories of students’ journeys through life, influenced by the game of chess.
Chess4Life has placed in the 100 Fastest Growing Companies in the Puget Sound Business Journal, and twice on the Inc. 5000 list for fastest growing privately held companies. Chess4Life partnered with WSA Head Start & ECEAP, receiving a grant from the Boeing company in their efforts to use chess as a means to help low-income preschoolers learn concepts that improve early math, social-emotional, and other key skills.
Elliott inspires audiences through sharing the life strategies we can learn from the game of chess. Elliott lives in Bellevue, WA, with his growing family, and they attend Hope Presbyterian Church. Find out more at www.ElliottNeff.com.
Along the path to becoming a National Master in chess, Elliott Neff discovered important principles for success in chess. Over time, he came to realize that these principles were directly applicable to our daily Christian life. Learn about a few of these principles and explore how they could impact your thinking at work.
