Hi I'm Brendan,

My mission is to help organisations develop a high-trust culture that embraces change,  thrives in uncertainty and develops leaders with resilience and compassion.

I’m a motivational 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.

I didn’t win because I was the best sailor or strategist, but because I created the most engaged and empowered on-board culture, with a compelling vision, strong values and a continuous-improvement mindset.

Change-embracing organisations trust me with their big events.

My 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
