Fantastic. In many years in the industry, I have rarely seen a crowd applaud and welcome someone in the way the crowd did. The crowd were engaged, excited and were very open to asking some great questions.

Chris was thoroughly professional throughout the process, from planning to delivery. During the Q&A his content was highly engaging and motivational, this captured and maintained high levels of interest from our delegates who all left inspired. Chris was also incredibly patient and personable after the event with the ever growing line of guests waiting for photos.

Sir Chris and his team were brilliant to work with and really delivered value for our client. Chris excelled at everything we asked him to do, from Q&As, to one-on-one conversations with senior business leaders, to filming. And his determination to cycle with each and every guest during our velodrome session made our client’s event really stand out. One of the best ambassadors we’ve worked with.

Sir Chris was an absolute gentleman and he helped create a huge buzz and sense of excitement at the airport. He had time for all the staff and media and were chuffed to bits to have him open our new international arrivals area.
