Wouldn’t it be amazing if your people changed the way they worked, made the most of their combined talents, and, systematically, day by day, learned to excel as a team?
Wouldn’t it be equally amazing if you could kick start that process with an inspirational message from an Olympic Gold Medallist or a World Champion Rower and International Diplomat? Maybe an Elite Sports Physiologist that’s worked with Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah and Steve Redgrave or an author who is a performance coach and in her spare time a stand up-comedian?
Our Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? keynote speakers not only inspire your people to achieve more, they leave a lasting message that stays with them each day at work.
We deliver post-speech workshop activities to help the delegates immediately apply the ideas. This means that that your organisation has the best possible chance for success.
These workshops can be tailored in length and content to suit your conference arrangements. There is also a high quality follow up programme of films and interactive content available to your delegates.
Over the last ten years Ben and our Will It Make the Boat Go Faster? speakers have spoken at many conferences and meetings, ranging from 2500 people to groups of 5. They are used to working with multinational groups and with simultaneous translation. And can tailor their speech to relate to your conference theme or to your organisational goals.
Have you ever been really fired up by a motivational speech as you’re sitting there in the audience, and even for a few days afterwards – but somehow been at a loss when it comes to putting those inspiring ideas into practice? We have. That’s why we believe you’ll not have heard anything like a Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? speech.
We offer a choice of speakers each with their own inspiring success stories. But, all deliver the very same strategies for success Olympian Ben Hunt-Davis used to achieve his gold medal in Sydney 2000.
Many of our clients have told us the effects of hearing Ben’s speech have stayed with them and their teams for the rest of their lives.
If you would like to add even more value to your conference or team event – we can co-design and deliver the event for you, inspiring teams and bringing to life your key objectives through the power of our speaker’s stories and our facilitators. Through our additional workshops, people open up to learning, goal setting and new habits, understanding the way forward and making a real commitment to be part of the change.

Ben has a great skill in captivating and engaging an audience at all levels and putting them at ease so that they want to actively participate. In addition, the experience that he relays, and the examples and learning that he derives along the way of his journey are all very applicable and transferable to other situations. Certainly our staff came away from this event enthused and even those with a ‘half empty glass’ are now (fortunately) able to consider it being ‘half full’! All the feedback and evaluation of the session has been very positive. We will be using the ideas discussed to approach our work with a fresh view.
Ben is a highly inspirational speaker and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a speaker to motivate their team.
Having Ben at our 2012 Company Kick off took our event to a different level. His personal experience demonstrated and perfectly supported our company mission to change the game, leaving staff motivated, inspired and focused on the changes ahead. His ability to relate to people from all levels and the challenges of a growing business was spot on. I would thoroughly recommend him to other business leaders looking to motivate and focus their teams.
Steve was a fantastic motivational speaker. Not only has he got a great story to tell, but he does this in a very engaging and thought provoking way. He holds the attention of the audience immediately using great footage and some fun props! He also highlighted the key insights which were relevant and transferable to our business, and our challenges very clearly. He received fantastic feedback from our managers who found him really inspiring, warm and engaging. I’d thoroughly recommend him to others.
As a team we have been struggling with momentum and Cath’s speech was a perfect injection to us. The feedback we’ve had from the team has been overwhelmingly positive. They all commented and reflected on her messaging – they thought that it was awesome and have left feeling that anything is possible and that the small things really matter – it really hit home at the right time. Cath helped to make our event a huge success.
I was extremely pleased with Ben’s contribution to my Sales Convention. His talk was most interesting and very well delivered, it was fascinating to watch the audience willing the boat on and cheering at the end when it went across the finish line. I wanted the people to leave the event saying what a good day it had been and as the last presenter Ben’s speech did just that.
Harriet spoke at our annual senior management conference and made a big impact. Her presentation style is very engaging, her humour works well with the audience and she gets the message across in a way that people understand quickly. The response from the team has been very positive but more importantly, we now regularly hear people challenging what they are doing or how they are working with the question – ‘Will it make the boat go faster?’. That’s a great result from an hour-long presentation. Highly recommended!
Ben spoke at our Global Senior Managers Conference and he was both inspiring and thought provoking. He truly engaged with a diverse audience and his message reinforced our Conference objective perfectly. The team at Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? were extremely professional and delivered an excellent service to our organisation.
