The Mission Performance Team

Brendan Hall

Keynote speaker and coach

In 2010 I skippered the winning yacht in the Clipper Round the World Race, leading a team of 44 amateur sailors in a 10-month lap of the planet. It was a unique and formidable leadership challenge. Our overall victory came down to our high-performance team culture and my inclusive approach to leadership.

I now help teams and leaders reach that same level of high performance and create a culture where their team will meet its potential. Using a combination of story-telling, coaching, experiential learning and practical, co-created interventions, I am a catalyst for meaningful organisational change.

Team Spirit: Life and Leadership on one of the World's toughest Yacht races

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is the ultimate long distance challenge – a 35,000-mile circumnavigation of the globe, contested by amateur crews in identical racing yachts. The 2010 winner was 28-year-old Brendan Hall and his crew in Spirit of Australia. Although Brendan was the youngest and least experienced skipper in the race, the win was no accident – it was the culmination of years of training, skilled navigation and a leadership style way beyond his years.

His skills were soon put to the test – in the middle of a North Pacific hurricane, Brendan went to the rescue of a competing yacht and skippered both boats across one of the most feared oceans in the world. This brutally honest, no-holds-barred account is revealing and instructive, with valuable lessons in leadership and management – as well as never giving up. Thrown in quite literally at the deep end, he is pushed to the limit, and learns lessons you can only learn the hard way.

"My mission is to bring a race winning culture to your organisation."
