Kriss Akabusi MBE is the final top-flight speaker to sign up for the Builders Merchants Federation All Industry Conference this June.
A champion athlete, Akabusi was a 400m hurdler and a key member of Britain’s 4x400m relay team. A three times Olympic medallist and World, European and Commonwealth Champion, he cites his gold medal in the 1990 European Championships as his greatest individual triumph, when he overturned the British record that had stood for 22 years. At the World Championships in 1991 he struck gold again, helping the British 4 x 400m relay team defeat their US rivals with an awe-inspiring final leg.
Since retiring from athletics, he has presented various TV programmes including The Big Breakfast and Record Breakers, and appears regularly on game and chat shows.
The 2015 All-Industry Conference takes place in Malta from 18th-21st June 2015 at the five star Westin Dragonara Resort in St Julians Bay. It will be hosted by Olympic and Commonwealth medal winner and TV presenter, Sharron Davies.
