Inspirational conference and keynote speaker, Mark Denton, joined us at The Ageas Bowl for the November Network Hampshire networking lunch!
Having led a team to win the ‘BT Global Challenge’ – a round the world race where 17 amateurs sail the wrong way around the earth – Mark gave some powerful lessons from competing in the world’s toughest yacht race. Heading into the fourth and final leg of the race, Mark’s team were sitting in 7th place and had very little hope of achieving their goal of a podium finish; they had to adopt a new strategy. Challenging his own mindset, analysing the performance of the team thus far, and coming to grips with his own flaws, Mark rallied the team together to head into the final leg. It was neck and neck until the final 100m, until – using knowledge they had picked up from a harbourmaster a few days prior – the team gave one last push and won the race by just 25 seconds.
