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 recently came to the Institute of Directors IOD Young Directors event and his session was an absolute knock out. I think it was one of the best business presentations I’ve been to – and I’ve been to a few. Ben had a simple style of delivery and couples this with his unique insights in high performance sport. If you want your team to lift their game and go for gold – a few minutes with Ben and his team at “Will It Make the Boat Go Faster?” will set you out on the right road.
Harriet delivered a fantastic speech which really engaged our audience and challenged their thinking on teamwork, performance and reaching your goals. Harriet is highly personable and her delivery style, humour and energy created a great buzz across the room.
Ben’s message has never been more relevant in an industry where the smallest of changes can help gain the competitive edge.
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 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.
Everyone here is talking about ‘Will it make the boat go faster’, we were all very inspired! Great conference this year!
Ben is a highly inspirational speaker and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a speaker to motivate their team.
