Ben Hunt Davis

Inspirational Speaker, Olympic Gold Medalist – Will it make the boat go faster?


“Thank you so much for your brilliant and inspirational talk on Friday morning. The younger members of your audience were able to relate very closely to the parallels between their business and your sporting achievements. A large number of my rather horny old partners who have all been round the block a few times said it was singularly the most inspirational piece of public speaking they had ever witnessed. Once again thank you very much for your input and I would like to think we would have the opportunity of working together again in the future.”

“Will It Make the Boat Go Faster?”

This question helped Ben Hunt-Davis raise his game and row his way to an Olympic Gold Medal 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?

Keynote speaker and performance coach Ben Hunt-Davis has spent the last 4 years working 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 a decade in the national team he won an Olympic Gold Medal.

His crew were the first British winners of the event since 1912. 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 reality gap between just listening to how others achieve their goals and doing it yourself. His experience as a business coach has allowed Ben a great deal of insight into the corporate world. Knowing about how people think and what motivates them. This means he can use his story to greatest effect explaining not only how he achieved his goals but how other can as achieve theirs.

  • Continuous improvement
  • Taking responsibility
  • Team work
  • Learning from one’s mistakes
