    James Timpson: How generosity leads to wealth

    James Timpson: How generosity leads to wealth

    James Timpson is the CEO of Timpson, a business that has been in his family for over 150 years. James helped grow Timpson to over 2100 shops, and developed several innovative ways to run the business at a time when traditional High Street retailing has suffered.
    The key to the growth of the business has been the culture that James has pioneered, based on trust and kindness. Employee benefits such as free holiday homes, a Dreams Come True scheme, weekly Lotteries and mental health support has ensured Timpson has been one of the UK’s best companies to work.
    James pioneered the recruitment of ex-offenders, to the extent that Timpson now employs over 600 prison leavers (this is over 10% of the Company).

    Zack George: The power of internal motivation

    Zack George: The power of internal motivation

    Zack George is one of the world’s top CrossFit athletes, a fitness influencer and officially the UK’s Fittest Man 2020. Zack’s story is one of dramatic change, resilience and hard work. As a child and early teenager, Zack was severely overweight and deeply unhappy in his body. It was his father’s offer of a Playstation to lose some weight that became the catalyst for change in Zack’s life. 
    After realising what he could achieve with hard work and determination, Zack put his mind to accomplishing greater challenges by taking up a variety of sports and in 2013, Zack came across a YouTube video documenting the 2013 CrossFit Games and from that moment on, set himself the goal of making it as an individual athlete to the CrossFit Games. In 2015, Zack opened CrossFit BFG in Leicester and began to seriously focus on his training to become a CrossFit Games contender. Zack went on to achieve first place in the UK CrossFit Open 2020. Unfortunately Zack is injured at the moment and can’t take part in the Games in 2021, we wish him all the best and know he’ll be back!
