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.

The presentation from Ben was tailor-made for our meeting as he demonstrated that “how to make the boat go faster” was determined by Process, Communication and Accountability. If you want to know what success looks like then Ben is clearly an ambassador for this, all who attended are now empowering their teams to “making the boat go faster” and reaching the business goal.
Ben spoke at our annual Sales Kicker to 150 key staff including our main board and simply put the feedback from everyone who attended was he was the best guest speaker we have ever had. Inspirational, confident, balanced with the right sense of humility, Ben has the unique ability to relate to his audience and our staff were completely absorbed in his every word. Ben got completely involved in the whole day arriving at the crack of dawn and leaving late at night which ensured that everyone could have a chat to him if they wished, including a photo wearing the gold medal!! Truly inspiring stuff.
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.
Ben tells a timeless tale of daring to do things differently to succeed – a story that truly resonated with my audience of mid-senior managers. His combination of self-deprecation, humour and passion delivers a real punch and, coupled with his thorough research into my own organisation, allows him to take this tale of the extraordinary and make it accessible and relevant to the business world. I had nothing but positive feedback: I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
Ben Hunt-Davis came to our event and ‘wowed’ everyone with his inspirational and uplifting session. Ben is living proof that the only barriers to achieving greatness are the ones we create ourselves, but not only that he helped us with tools and techniques to remove the barriers. Ben is very warm and engaging and took time to speak with people after the event finished. The time we had with Ben and what he covered will stay with us for some time, we are all in search of our equivalent question to ‘will it make the boat go faster’… a strong long lasting metaphor for us to focus on.
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 is an excellent speaker and added a huge contribution to my team event with her engaging style, humour and ability to draw the audience into the heart of a very compelling ‘change’ story.
Ben is a highly inspirational speaker and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a speaker to motivate their team.
