Co-author and co-founder of Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?

In 1998, following another disappointing Rowing World Championships, Ben Hunt-Davis and the rest of his GB Eight rowing team realised that if they carried on doing what they were doing, they would keep getting what they’d been getting – which was a lot of 7th place finishes!

So instead, they decided to approach things differently, critically, asking the same simple question with every single conversation, decision and action they took: ‘Will it make the boat go faster?’.

Along their journey they learned the sustainable, dependable techniques that put them on track for their gold medal at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

Ben later co-wrote the book ‘Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?’ with Executive Coach – Harriet Beveridge – to show you how to use similar strategies to improve performance in your business or personal life. Today, Ben can be found working with his colleagues at performance consultancy Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?, working across the globe to inspire and change organisational performance.

Ben’s inspirational story is not only motivational, but practical and applicable to organisations around the world. For over ten years, Ben has been speaking at conferences and has spoken in more than 30 countries.
