Life and Leadership on one of the world’s toughest yacht races – Event Update

The first Business Breakfast of 2018 was held at The Haven in Lymington and was a great success. The venue provided the perfect setting for the topic of the breakfast ‘Life and Leadership on one of the world’s toughest yacht races’, as it overlooked the Solent, surrounded by yachts.

Brendan Hall was the guest speaker for the topic and spoke about his extraordinary experience of when he took part in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race in 2010. Brendan’s focus was about his team, some of whom had never sailed before, and how he led them and encouraged them to grow in confidence and work as a team and to eventually go on and win the 35,000-mile race.

After the presentation Brendan took some questions from the audience who clearly all took something away with them. The presentation indicated that guests had been encouraged to think about the ways they manage their employees and situations on a day to day basis.
