'Ten hours into the race. It's 02:00 and pitch black with a force 8 gale blowing.

Suddenly a shout of 'Man Overboard' jerks the off watch out of their restless sleep...'

How would you prepare for this disaster?
Various, but broadly covering the bigger picture aspects of organisational development.
Various interactive workshops around the country delivered to groups of Chief Executives and Company Directors. Workshops typically included: context and analogy with yacht racing round-the-world; inspirational stories from the Global Challenge RTW yacht race and how they relate to business; challenging leadership scenarios discussed and debriefed; drawing out the ‘so what’ to take back into the business.
"I have seen quite a few sportsmen/adventurers as business speakers now, but this was amongst the best at making their experiences relevant to the business needs of the members present. The group loved it and gave the session an overall score of 9.5 (four 10’s!) – a great result. Excellent use of video clips, smoothly delivered story and sensible break-out sessions to engage the members."
