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.

Everyone here is talking about ‘Will it make the boat go faster’, we were all very inspired! Great conference this year!
Ben provided the perfect finishing touch for our conference. His enthusiasm was infectious and people left the room energised and excited. Even now, some weeks later, people are referencing the speech and the messages continue to positively impact our business.
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.
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 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 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.
Ben certainly left our sales management team with plenty to reflect on in our session and there was clearly some focused thought on defining what ‘will make the boat go faster’. Thanks to Ben for adding such an inspiring and thought provoking element to our programme.
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.
