In his speaking work and his book Better Decisions, Chris Grant draws on his experience of working with thousands of leaders in business, sport and elsewhere. Chris chaired the programme that introduced the UK’s Chip & PIN payment technology and since 2015, he’s chaired the judging of the UK’s Sport Industry Awards. He sits on the board of Sport England, and has facilitated strategic and operational conversations across a range of sectors, from the European Retail Real Estate Conference to the NHS Medical Directors’ Forum. He’s helped global industries to think about their social impact, and a national sports squad prepare for a victorious European Championship campaign. He’s coached Team GB coaches, TV executives and (literally) rocket scientists. But to Chris, the titles are less important than the people. He’s fascinated by the common factors and approaches, which either bring them success, or get in the way.
Chris’s charisma, combined with his capacity to “tune in” to the priorities, culture and language of different groups, make him a highly successful speaker and facilitator in conference rooms. But he’s a hit through the video conference screen too, and has several tricks up his sleeve to help a group feel fully engaged and energised in a remote setting. He can deliver a straightforward keynote, and is also highly skilled at involving groups in interactive exercises to enhance their understanding, as well conversations which can continue beyond the session.
