After some years in accountancy, Chris started a new career as a training advisor with The Industrial Society, specializing in leadership and management training in a white-collar environment. First as an advisor, later as Head of the Commercial Department, he provided in-house training for numerous companies and firms in insurance, banking, accountancy and building societies.
Subsequently, he joined TSB South East as Head of Training. He set up and staffed a Management Training Centre leading five full time trainers in a comprehensive development programme over four years. Later he chaired an assessment centre.
