As a teenager in the 1970s Chris set himself a challenge;

‘To run in every City2Surf for 50 years and finish in under 100 minutes each time’.

He approaches his work the same way as he does the world’s biggest fun run, with a strong sense of dedication, determination and focus.

Chris speaks with first hand experience about what it takes to motivate people… starting with himself!

“Chris has a unique way of looking at teamwork and leadership that is very thought provoking. He isn’t your stereotypical motivational speaker; he is humorous and inspirational but fairly ‘laid back’ in his delivery.”

Chris is passionate about empowering others to achieve their best in life and maintains that;

‘Leadership is important for all of us. After all, if you can’t lead yourself, how can you hope to effectively lead others?’

‘Chris is an engaging speaker who is happy to prepare a talk specifically for your audience.’
