Specsavers store directors from across London were treated to some wise words on leadership from sporting champion Kriss Akabusi MBE at an event in June.

Motivation for directors

Kriss is a former Olympic medallist and World, European and Commonwealth champion. Today, he is a TV presenter and commentator on sporting and business issues.

Kriss spoke about how to stay FIT by being focused, innovating and working as a team. He touched on the importance of setting a clear vision, goal setting and ownership of goals, as well as how to overcome hurdles by being flexible and creative.

Delivering for customers

Rakesh Kapoor, store director in Barnet, Edgware, Stanmore and Wembley, organised the event.

He said: ‘Kriss was really inspirational, and really enthused myself and my fellow store directors to continue to deliver our best.

‘His enthusiasm was catching, and he made us all laugh a lot along the way too. While I think we will leave the running to the experts, we will use the lessons we learned to deliver the best possible service to our customers.’
