able to share a few nuggets from my experience in business. Chris – you are
a natural communicator and connector.Chris kindly accepted an invitation to spend a couple of days with me after
the show, to rekindle his connection with the Yorkshire Dales.  It was a
pleasure to get to know Chris more and understand even more of what he
offers his clients and, potentially, clients I work with too.It was a great investment of my time, understanding the dynamic and
breadth of Chris’s range of skills. Chris is a ‘people’ person; he has an ability
to get the heart of issues and help people work through these, both
individually and as teams. I am really excited about exploring ways to work

forthcoming book ‘The Power to Get Things Done’.If you want to ‘be more and achieve more’ you need to talk to Chris; he will
make a difference in so many ways.”
