I recently shared a stage with Chris, speaking at a Business Growth Conference in Mayfair, London.Chris had a tough job as the final speaker at the end of the afternoon, following a series of speeches from highly experienced conference speakers.The organisers were delighted with Chris – he did a splendid job reminding the audience that they only had themselves to blame if they left that conference and failed to take appropriate action.
