I craft every speech to strike a balance between Inspiration and Application. My first and most important question to you will be “What do you want your audience to Know, Feel and Do after hearing me speak?”

Motivational Keynote Topics Include
Hi, I'm Brendan
I’m a motivational leadership speaker, author and winning skipper of the world’s most demanding sailing event
– The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, a 40,000 mile racing circumnavigation of the globe.
I use my story as a vehicle to raise and discuss business-relevant leadership lessons. My goal is to strike the perfect balance of Inspiration and Application.
I speak compellingly on the topics of leadership, high-performance teamwork, empowerment, motivation, trust and creating a culture that thrives in uncertainty and change – all familiar concerns of a 21st century organisation.
Brendan receives a high level of repeat bookings from his clients, for good reason – he’s a safe pair of hands and always delivers.
When Brendan is on-stage, the event organiser can relax.
Brendan's Book: Team Spirit
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.
“A really great read for anyone interested in team performance at the very highest level, coupled with a fascinating insight into human endeavour in a pressure cooker environment.” – Henley Business School
