Life started in a children’s home for Kriss, where he thrived, and after a stint in the army, the lure of competitive sport was too strong to resist.

Drawing on his wealth of experience Kriss presents the importance of Focus, Innovation and Teamwork, which he relates to the business arena in the legendary FIT4Business© presentation.
