Brendan Hall

Brendan Hall

Steer YOUR ship through uncertainty and change
In 2009, Brendan skippered a racing yacht in the ultimate long-distance challenge, The Clipper Round the World Yacht race – a 35,000-mile circumnavigation of the globe, contested by amateur crews in identical racing yachts. Although Brendan was the youngest and least experienced skipper in the race, his team won it in convincing fashion. They didn’t win because Brendan was the best sailor or strategist, but because he created the most engaged and empowered on-board culture, with a compelling vision, strong values and a continuous-improvement mindset. Brendan is now an international keynote speaker, who shows organisations, from start-ups to Multinationals how to positively develop their own internal culture, in the face of change, disruption and uncertainty.

Taking On The Big Boys
A few years ago, Ben discovered that despite being heavily funded, American tech giants weren’t doing a good job of providing social media solutions for organisations receiving huge swathes of traffic and communications. 

Using huge levels of resourcefulness and commitment to business basics, and without private equity investment, Ben has built Orlo - a company at the forefront of digital transformation with clients that include Mercedes Benz and Ocado. 

In a tech culture orientated towards funding rounds, Ben will discuss how he has focused on looking outside the ‘tech bubble’ and developing ‘the right thing at the right time’ mindset. You will learn all about how to draw on your resources, and to think differently, in this motivating session.

Nick Wood - Founder of Mountain Summit

“We live in fast changing times. The need for all us to have open, insightful dialogue about running our businesses (and ourselves) effectively, both now and through a decade of rapid change, is essential. 

It’s not just about paying the bills in the next decade… It’s about rapid technological change, global competition, a shortage of labour, political uncertainty, and that’s even before you’ve thought of your marketing or invoicing.

Mountain Summit is about us collectively raising our games and our standards. It is about learning from one of the UK’s leading performance coaches Matt Fowler. It’s about hearing from aspirational business leaders who have built billion pound global companies. It’s about creating a kit bag of strategies to use in your business. It’s about a network of like-minded explorers going on the same journey by your side. 

At Mountain Summit, you will make new friends, clients, and contacts. And I promise, you will have so much fun along the way!”
