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.

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.
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!
Everyone here is talking about ‘Will it make the boat go faster’, we were all very inspired! Great conference this year!
Ben joined us at our HQ All Employee Meeting. His presentation was certainly inspirational and 12 years on the Eights Final was still a real thriller and both exciting and emotional to watch. A phrase he used during your presentation keeps coming back to me – ‘what’s best for the boat’. Focusing on this certainly worked for his crew and I hope it will prove equally effective for ‘One ACI’. The feedback from staff has been great and I’m told it was the best AEM we’ve ever had. Thanks to Ben for his contribution to this and for a truly inspirational speech.
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 talk was inspiring and I received loads of great feedback afterwards from many in the team. The themes Ben talked about from his professional sports experience resonated so well with many of the messages that I was trying to get across namely: making a difference, driving outstanding performance, and being a great boss. I used a number of your quotes in my wrap-up session for the conference. Your session gave a unique perspective to these themes and added real value to the day.
Harriet’s delivery and engagement at our conference was excellent, and the messaging was simple and yet very effective.
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.
