Round the World Yacht Race:
A professional yacht racing skipper, author and leadership expert. In 2009, Brendan skippered a yacht in the ultimate long-distance challenge, The Clipper Round the World Yacht race – a 35,000-mile circumnavigation of the globe, contested by amateur crews in identical racing yachts.
Although Brendan was the youngest and least experienced skipper in the race, he and his team won.
This achievement was the culmination of years of leadership research, creating a high-performance culture and a leadership style way beyond his age.
Caught in the middle of a deadly North Pacific winter hurricane, Brendan’s leadership skills were put to the ultimate test as he and his crew rescued an incapacitated skipper on a competing yacht.
Brendan swapped yachts and skippered both vessels 4000 nautical miles, across the world’s most treacherous ocean to safety.
After completing his life-changing challenge, Brendan authored Team Spirit, a raw, insightful look into the life of a leader pushing himself and his team to perform in extreme conditions.
It distils and communicates the core skills and hard-won lessons that made Brendan’s team winners. The book has had an outstanding reception from the business world, where leaders and teams face comparable challenges in their environment.
