Just wanted to write to say a HUGE thank you to Kriss for closing our conference on Wednesday on such a high. The delegates were bowled over with his performance and haven't stopped talking about it yet!

As for Kriss Akabusi... words fail me. What an explosion of a performance, it can hardly be described as a speech or even a presentation. The showing of that memorable race, with his views on his team mates as commentary, was the icing on the cake.

Ann, The Leadership Trust

Kriss provided an uplifting, motivational speech which was filled with excellent anecdotes and humour and was much appreciated by all. Everyone, from trainee to director left the ceremonies with a 'feel good' factor.

Kriss, thank you for your outstanding contribution to Ford's recent conference. It was doubly satisfying thaty ou were able to take on board so much of their content and make it truly personal. In many years of offering up good people to speak at events, you stand head and shoulders above many other names.
