Welcome to Ben Hunt-Davis’ website

Ben Hunt-Davis is a performance consultant, inspirational speaker and author of ‘Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?’

I have competed at three Olympic Games, winning an Olympic Gold Medal at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and I was lucky enough to have been part of the HQ Staff of Team GB in Beijing 2008 and in London 2012.

Tom Barry and I run Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? Ltd, which helps individuals, teams and organisations be more effective by getting them to:

  1. Focus on what’s important
  2. Focus on performance, in order to get results
  3. Work effectively with others to achieve goals

As well as designing and running development programmes, we run workshop sessions at conferences and I continue to deliver my ‘Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?’ speech to numerous different organisations.

My first book ‘Will It Make The Boat Go Faster’ was published in 2011, providing Olympic-winning strategies to achieve more success in business, sport and everyday life.
