Book Ben Hunt-Davis MBE

Ben tells the story of how the GB Men’s Eight changed as a crew from being regularly 7th to winning Olympic Gold.

It is an engaging, motivational and inspiring speech that can be tailored to you and your current challenges and opportunities. The Great Britain Men’s Eight was in reality a team of 60 people whose collective focus, direction and drive to succeed was captured in the execution of the clear and direct question – ‘Will it make the boat go faster?’.

The simplicity of the question and its implied focus and action consistently resonates with teams and individuals who are challenged to lead themselves and others to simplify process, reduce complexity, innovate and improve performance.

Ben is one of the most sought after motivational speakers in the world. Some of the great value of Ben is the ordinary guy achieving something extraordinary. The presence of a humble man on the stage that makes everyone at ease, and an Olympic story that everyone can relate to.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

It was so great - some comments from the team were 'best ever speaker' and 'best offsite ever'. They really loved how engaging Ben was, one reference was that they felt Ben was talking straight down the camera at them which is great.
