Leadership and performance consultancy business Will It Make the Boat Go Faster? Is hosting a high performance day centred around Olympic Winning Strategies for Business Success. Led by Olympic gold medallist and co-founder of the company, Ben Hunt-Davis, who will be giving the keynote speech and will have interview time available on the day.

Learn how a measurable shared goal and set of team rules helped Ben and his crew win Olympic Gold. Explore how businesses can use these tools to drive their team’s performance.

You can also choose to attend two extra sessions on the day which will be hosted by one of Will It Make the Boat Go Faster’s Senior Performance Coaches, Harriet Beveridge, Jamie MacPherson and a further session by Ben Hunt-Davis.

The story behind Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?:

After many years of not winning any races at all, Ben Hunt-Davis and the GB Men’s rowing eight won gold at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. They changed the way they worked, which changed the results they got. Born out the story of an ordinary guy achieving something extraordinary, Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? works with organisations to help them focus on what matters most, and to imaginatively and systematically seek improvements for the best possible performance by introducing Olympic-winning techniques.
