Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?

Olympic-winning Strategies for Everyday Success - Second Edition


With its winning mix of gripping narrative and easy-to-implement performance-raising tips, this book has become a best-selling classic. It’s garnered 5-star reviews and wide-ranging endorsements – from Sebastian Coe and Dame Kelly Holmes to Lord Digby Jones. The book tells the inspiring story of how Ben Hunt-Davis - an ordinary guy in an ordinary team – achieved something pretty extraordinary: Olympic Gold. Co-author Harriet Beveridge, Executive Coach, then gives a simple, engaging account of how we can apply these strategies to raise our own game… in sport, in business and in life. 

Building on the huge success of the original, this second edition includes two completely new chapters – on high performance conversations and performance under pressure – as well as a general update, based on the successes readers and businesses have reaped from the first edition. In the book’s signature, down to earth and practical style, the new chapters unlock simple ways for readers to thrive in their own pressured environments, and to communicate in ways which consistently improve results. 

Whether you are a business leader looking to achieve a compelling vision, an individual with a dream, or a coach supporting others to unlock their potential…this book is jam-packed with tried and tested methods to help you achieve your own ‘gold medal’.

I have a pronounced dislike of management speak and the motivation industry. This book was different. It was referenced to a great sporting feat, one entirely against the odds. Ben Hunt-Davis’s crew was written off as an Olympic Gold Medal prospect. They took themselves off into a metaphorical corner and worked it out for themselves with, pre-Olympics, under-regarded coaches. What Ben and his crew did was the ‘how to’ of application, self-belief and team focus. I defy anyone not to learn from this book. It is attractively anecdotal and entirely to the point. This is one to learn from, from teenage to dotage.
