Synaxon signs Kriss Akabusi

Dealer services group Synaxon has signed up Kriss Akabusi to give motivational and business advice to its members.

The athletics star, Great Britain Olympic gold medallist abd MBE will be a guest speaker at this year’s Synaxon National Conference in June.

Kriss Akabusi is famous for his achievements on the athletics track, where he was a World, European and Commonwealth Champion and won three Olympic medals for Great Britain. He is perhaps best remembered as part of the triumphant team 4 x 400 metre relay team that won Gold at the 1991 World Championships in Tokyo. 

His greatest individual achievement was his Gold medal in the 1990 European Championships, where he beat David Hemery’s 22-year-old British 400m hurdles record. In 1992, he was awarded the MBE in recognition of his services to the country through athletics.

Today, Akabusi is a motivational speaker and will share his positive approach to personal and business success in a Synaxon keynote.

Derek Jones, MD of Synaxon UK, said: “We are thrilled to have such a fantastic guest speaker for the conference. Kriss is one of the all-time greats from the world of athletics and one of the best motivational business speakers in the UK. Everyone will have seen him on TV, winning Gold medals or receiving an MBE from Her Majesty the Queen – and now he’s coming to the Synaxon National Conference to enthuse and inspire our members.

"It’s a great chance for them to meet the great man himself and to benefit from the energy and enthusiasm that Kriss and the whole Synaxon team is bringing to this year’s event. It promises to be very special indeed.”

The 2015 Synaxon National Conference takes place at Staverton Park, Daventry on Thursday June 18th and Friday June 19th. For more information call 0844 481 5844 or visit
