Really rather proud of my brother Nick and his wife Chrissie… Recently they were awarded lifetime achievement awards by ECMOD, a UK association of Ecommerce Retailers.

They both run hugely successful businesses.

Nick founded Charles Tyrwhitt from his University room back in the mid 1980’s and Chrissie founded the White Company around 10 years later in the mid 1990’s.

They are both in their 40’s so it seems rather odd to me that they would get a lifetime achievement award so young… Perhaps it should just be an achievement award… Just imagine what they will have accomplished by their 80s!

Probably the most important lessons from these speeches are the importance of focus and the importance of having a great team of people who are better than you.

Hope you enjoy them and please do let me know what you think in the comments below.
