“Will It Make the Boat Go Faster?”
This question helped Ben raise his game and row his way to success in Sydney 2000.
What is your business equivalent? What are your critical variables? Are your challenges to get your sales team having the courage to operate at the highest level? Or is it about helping your business deal with change more efficiently?
Ben has worked with a wide range of businesses helping them answer these questions. In his keynote speech, he tells the inspirational and exciting story of how:
- After seven years competing in the national team Ben was still a long way from winning any World Medals.
- He tells of how things had to change, there could be no excuses.
- He and the team set their ambitions and started looking for different ways to achieve them, defining absolutely everything that could make the boat go faster.
- They changed their mindset, their approach and their training and as a result, their performance.
Ben’s story of the journey to an Olympic Gold Medal bridges the gap between just listening to how others achieve their goals and doing it yourself.
His experience as a business coach has allowed him an extensive insight into the corporate world.
Ben uses his story to greatest effect explaining not only how he achieved his goals but how other can as achieve theirs.
