Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could foster a team spirit, build a sense of ownership of your organisation’s goals and create high performing teams in your business? A crew of eight people in a rowing boat is the ultimate team sport. In so many sports, you can rely on one or two super-talented individuals to bring home the silverware. With rowing, you can’t. Every single person in the crew must work towards a synchronized stroke that propels the boat forward. Our Corporate Rowing Day is a fantastic way to strengthen a team from any organisation. The lessons learned from a day on the river, led by the Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? team, are instantly applicable to a work environment. The effects are long-lasting. You will get to know each other so much more, gel better and learn the value of true teamwork. It’s ideal if your employees deserve a reward for a recent team or company triumph. It’s also huge fun!
We create an exciting, intense experience, for any number of people, tailored to the outcome you’d like to achieve. Our ambition for the day? To help each person understand and practice the high performing team behaviours needed for success in the work place.
People who are clear about what they want – and how to get there – are an inspiration to everyone around them. If an entire team of people learns to operate like that, they can become unbeatable.

Our rowing day can be hosted at Dorney Lake in Windsor. It was the venue for the Rowing and Canoeing at the 2012 London Olympics and hosted the 2013 Samsung World Rowing Championship – where Ben Hunt-Davis was Chairman of the Organising Committee. The excellent facilities make Dorney a very popular venue for many different occasions.
The rowing day in itself is very often the catalyst for change within a team. The lessons resonate so clearly that they are impossible to ignore. This often drives our clients to seek further focus in performance and how they work as a team.
Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? performance programmes, workshops, coaching and consulting work explores in further depth how individuals and teams can become the best they can be by focusing on our Performance Principles of:
The second you get in a rowing boat down at Dorney Lake, it changes everything. I really believe that it should be the first thing that a business does with their team before starting a programme, it was an eye-opening experience.
