Guests at this year’s Glazing Summit Dinner will be left inspired – with legendary athlete Kriss Akabusi MBE taking to the stage to deliver a high-energy after-dinner speech as only he can.
The former Olympian is one of the most sought-after, and inspirational business speakers in the country due to his experiences both on and off the track.
Thanks to his achievements of winning the 400 metre hurdles gold at the 1990 European Championships, being part of the gold medal winning 4×400 relay team at the 1991 World Championships, and amassing three Olympic medals, Kriss understands the dynamics of becoming a champion and how to perform under pressure.
After his athletics career finished, his big personality made him perfect for TV, including a fulltime position as co-presenter of the BBC’s legendary Record Breakers.
For more than 20 years Kriss, who is also an accredited personal coach, has given countless keynote speeches and facilitated training workshops in the corporate arena, and works with executives and senior managers to help them identify and achieve their business goals.
The dinner takes place on the evening of the Glazing Summit, and the event’s founder Andrew Scott commented: “We want our dinner guests to not only have a wonderful fine dining experience but to leave inspired and I am delighted to welcome Kriss Akabusi.
“By combining his experience of self-motivation and attainable personal development, Kriss is sure to deliver a rousing speech in his own unique, inspirational and engaging style – our guests are in for an absolute treat.”
The Glazing Summit Dinner will be held on Tuesday, October 18 in the Edgbaston Banqueting Suite and brings together more than 200 of the industry’s senior leaders in the glass and glazing for a champagne reception and four course gala dinner.
Spaces are limited, and delegates are welcome to attend the Glazing Summit, the Dinner or both.
