Event Overview

Matt will speak about leadership, vision, people and process the key elements to achieve great sales and consistent growth. With a focus on preparation, cool headed appraisal and continuous analysis, he illustrates his seminar with thrilling parallels in his row across the Atlantic Ocean. The combination of seriously effective business strategies, alongside an extremely challenging event that pushed physical and mental resilience to the limit, is intoxicating and especially relevant in today’s tough business environment.

Matt talks about the role of teamwork and collaboration for success, but without clear vision, good leadership and effective communication it can be difficult to achieve.

The Atlantic row demonstrates this without doubt. His team prepared for the challenge. It was physically tough and mentally tough, the ultimate team endurance event. Achieving business growth in a competitive environment is also a team effort requiring training, good communication, resilience and excellent leadership.
