Why Book Me?

The Stakes Are High

Maybe you’ve hired speakers before that didn’t deliver an exciting
experience for your audience which reflected badly on you.

Or, their keynote just didn’t fit as well as expected leaving your audience uninspired and with no real takeaways.

Not only does this waste audience’s time, but it’s a waste of money because the ROI just wasn’t there – resulting in a failed event.

A Proven Track Record

You need a speaker with a proven track record for delivering not just speeches that inspire your audience but are result-driven and produce a qualitative return on your investment.

I incorporate my unique story about winning the world’s most demanding yachting event into my keynote. It shows the exact practices and techniques I used to lead my team to victory in a challenging and turbulent environment.

Practical, not Theoretical

That’s why my keynote includes real takeaways – actionable tips,techniques, and strategies your leaders can implement immediately.

Book me today for your next event and invest in a leadership keynote
conference speaker who can deliver results with a compelling result
focused speech.

A Little About Me

My name is Brendan Hall, a world-renowned leadership keynote conference speaker delivering captivating speeches on insights for change in turbulent times to a variety of different industries.

I successfully lead a diverse team of individuals to an unprecedented victory in the world’s most demanding ocean sailing event – a 40,000 mile,10-month yacht race around the planet, the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.



Why my team won

My team didn’t win because I was the best sailor or strategist, but because I created an engaged, change-embracing culture, with a compelling vision,strong values and a resilient mindset.

I’ve focused my speech around these same strategies. And, I share my own secrets along with real takeaways to empower your leaders with the same behaviours, strategies, and best practices that enabled my team to successfully navigate difficult changes to win the race.
