Motivational Keynote Speaker

Brendan helps corporate leaders and their teams become stronger by adopting more high-performance teamwork & collaboration behaviours.​

In his speeches, he shares the tools and strategies he knows from experience to develop a strong collaborative culture that embraces change, provides psychological safety in uncertainty, and develops brilliant, resilient people.

Round The World Yacht Race Winning Skipper

Brendan skippered a racing yacht in the ultimate long-distance challenge. The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race – A 40,000-mile circumnavigation of the globe, contested by amateur crews in identical vessels.

Although Brendan was the youngest and least experienced skipper in the race, he and his team won it in convincing fashion. They didn’t win because he was the best sailor or strategist, but because he created a resilient, high-ownership culture, with a compelling vision, strong values and a continuous-improvement mindset.

Teamwork Author​

After completing the Clipper Race, Brendan has become an authority on Teamwork and Leadership, authoring Team Spirit – The collected lessons and best practices from his team’s Clipper Race experience.​

Published by Bloomsbury, Team Spirit has sold over 35,000 copies worldwide and was shortlisted for the prestigious Mountbatten book award.
