Abolish appraisals!  Breaking the rules to create a high performance culture

Fed up of form-filling?  Dreading the difficult conversations ahead?  If you feel the twice-yearly review system is out of date, not fit for purpose and in need of a fresh approach, you are not alone. 

Many businesses find that their current processes rarely drive employee engagement nor the high performance they desire but worry it‘s the only option to remain legally compliant.

Join the Hugh James Training team who will explore an alternative approach, pioneering the pursuit of tangible results through less paperwork and exploiting the legal loopholes that give you a commercial and practical solution to an age-old problem.

About the speaker


Having heard the lawyers’ take on performance, Olympian Christian Malcolm will then take to the stage and share with us some key sporting performance concepts to borrow in the world of business.

Christian Malcolm is undoubtedly one of GB & NI’s most successful sprinters. He burst on to the international scene in 1998 aged 19 when he won the double at The World Junior Championships over the 100 & 200m. In the same year, he claimed 200m Silver at the Commonwealth Games in a time of 20.29s.

Christian has naturally fallen in to many media roles throughout his career. In 2012, whilst training intensely for the London Olympics, Christian took on his first presenting role for BBC Wales Radio.  He talked to Welsh Olympic hopefuls leading up to the Olympic Games on home soil, talking through their journey of how they got to where they were and their hopes in the lead up to the Games.

He has experience presenting at live events including the Ironman event in Tenby & at the BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year, (2014 & 2015) where he interviewed some sporting legends including Warren Gatland, Leigh Halfpenny, John Hartson & this year’s winner Dan Biggar. He was also part of the BBC Wales commentating team at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow (2014), and enjoyed multiple appearances on 5Live whilst at the event.
