Hi I'm Brendan,
I’m an inspirational speaker, leadership author and winning skipper of the world’s most demanding sailing event
– The Clipper Round the World Race, a 40,000 mile racing circumnavigation of the globe.
My mission is to help organisational leaders become the best version of themselves, build teams that thrive in uncertainty and rise to every challenge.
How can I help your organisation?
A big thank you!
To say thanks for checking me out or for being one of my amazing audience members, I’d like to give you a FREE GIFT – An illustrated guide to creating a team that thrives in uncertainty.
The pessimist complains about the wind
The optimist expects it to change
The leader adjusts the sails
Team Spirit: Life and Leadership on one of the World’s Toughest Yacht Races is the story of an ocean race on the edge and my team’s journey into uncertainty, danger, disruption and ultimately, victory. Chapter by chapter, I distil the hard-won leadership lessons I learned in that unforgiving environment, to help you cross your personal and professional oceans.
“People die in hurricanes like these”
The hardest 12 hours of my life, fighting to survive and keep my crew safe in the teeth of a North Pacific hurricane was when I learned the most valuable leadership lesson of all.
