I often wonder why family is so rarely spoken about in business. In my speeches, I reveal to my audiences a rarely discussed 'secret to success' for business and for families, that involves applying work values to home and applying home or family values to work, to the betterment of both.
My audiences come away empowered to thrive and live their best lives both at work and at home”.
I believe we all need to build two teams, our work team and our home team. And despite my particular experience, you do NOT have to quit your job and set sail around the world to make this happen! If I can build a winning team with my wife and children (even a 2 year old) and at the same time a fast growth technology business, I can help you build a team.
My speeches combine the power of inspiring unforgettable stories which deliver insightful yet simple truths, so that everyone can leave with a skip in their step and ideas they can action immediately.
My core speech, Charting Success, 8 Steps to Building Winning Teams delivers powerful business messages weaving in experiences from family, from sailing twice around the world and from building multiple successful ventures.
I show audiences how to be resilient amid problems and uncertainties because both boats and business and life are fraught with problems and surprisingly, the application of family values can help you survive any crisis.
The core messages I cover in my 8 Steps are:
1) Write your Bold Story of the Future
2) Create a Culture of We, Not Me
3) Ingrain Growth Habits and Rituals
4) Focus on the Biggest Impact
5) Build People - A Happy Team is a Fast Team
6) Live your Values
7) Innovation under Pressure
8) Create Belief
My core message can be adapted and customized to suit your audience and the focus can be changed to address different but highly related topics including:
Team Dynamics in a Changing World
Transform the Culture in your Business
Embrace the Storm - How to Build Resilient Teams
Thrive - Build your Thriving Teams
Autonomy - How to Build a Business Capable of Running Without You
Life is Tough: Together we are Tougher
