Rio 2016 Olympic hopeful Chris Russell gave networking a sporting twist at a special seminar for business leaders on Monday (March 10th).
The Olympic Laser Class sailor gave a special talk to 40 members of West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce at the Quay Hotel & Spa, Deganwy, focusing on the lessons businesses can learn from sport.
As well as Chris’ presentation and subsequent question and answer session, members enjoyed a delicious champagne and canapé reception in the hotel’s spectacular conferencing facilities overlooking the River Conwy.
Debbie Stokes, Membership Manager for West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce said: “Our members enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at the Quay Hotel & Spa, made even better as summer sunshine made a very early appearance. We’d like to thank Chris and the team at the Quay Hotel & Spa for hosting the event and we look forward to coming back in future.
“I’d also like to thank Marie-Claire Ashcroft from Fluke Photography for capturing all the smiling faces at the event so perfectly. You can find out more about Marie-Claire’s work and services at www.flukephotography.co.uk.”
Fiona Gresty, Business Development Manager at the Quay Hotel & Spa said: “It was a wonderful event and we were delighted to welcome members of the Chamber and Chris to the hotel. It gave us a fantastic opportunity to showcase the hotel and our conferencing facilities to host of new people.”
