This is an exclusive event for business leaders and is hosted by the Academy for Chief Executives. During this event, we will be hearing from Kriss Akabusi MBE who will highlight the many similarities between sport and business. Kriss will also talk about how building a winning team will enable you to perform under pressure, gain competitive advantage and focus on executing a strategy. Kriss is famous for his achievements in athletics where his greatest individual triumph was his gold medal in the 1990 European Championships, for the 400m hurdles.
Then as a member of the 4x400 metre relay squad he helped Britain clinch the gold and beat the Americans in the World Cham-pionships 4x400 metre relay in Tokyo in 1991, we are delighted to welcome sport psychologist and performance coach, Simon Hartley. Both speakers will provide you with game changing new thinking that will have a genuine impact on the success of your business.
We are also delighted to present Simon Hartley who has applied the principles of sport psychology to business, education, healthcare and the charity sector. This has included projects with some of the world’s leading corporations and foremost executives. For almost 20 years, Simon has worked with gold medalists, world record holders, world champions, top five world-ranked professional athletes and championship winning teams.
In addition, you will meet other interesting and successful CEOs/business owners and hear more about how the Academy transforms hundreds of businesses across the UK. A buffet lunch will also be provided.
