Kriss rose to fame on the athletics track, where his greatest individual triumph was winning the gold medal in the 1990 European Championships. This was the day when he beat David Hemery’s British record for the 400 metre hurdles – a record that stood for 22 years before Kriss made his mark on it!
Having amassed three Olympic medals, as well as World, European and Commonwealth titles, Kriss was bestowed with an even greater honour in 1992: an MBE awarded by her Majesty the Queen in recognition of his services to the country through athletics.
Kriss’ engaging personality, inspirational speaking style, and remarkable backstory make him a perfect fit as a professional speaker. For over 20 years, he has given countless keynote speeches and facilitated a wide range of training workshops in the corporate arena.
In order to complement and strengthen his experience of the businesses he works with, Kriss undertook a two-year MBA (Masters in Business Administration) programme at the Ashridge Business School.
Kriss is also an accredited personal coach, having qualified at the Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara. He works with executives and senior managers to help them identify, clarify and achieve their personal and business goals.
