The Ultimate Leadership and Team Challenge from the Clipper 2019/20 Round The World Yacht Race


Speakers from Grahame Robb Associates and Clipper Round the World Yacht Race will describe the unique leadership and team challenges posed by one of the toughest races in the world and the lessons that can be applied within the workplace.

Grahame Robb Associates are the official learning and development partners for the biennial round the world race supporting the team skippers and first mates to hone their leadership skills before setting off on the 40,000 nautical mile race with crews of amateur sailors.

Over 70 nationalities and people aged 18‐70 are taking part in the race with some members of the teams changing across the eight legs of the race. This presents significant challenges to team development and performance, team culture, developing strategy through uncertainty and leading teams effectively.

This promises to be a fascinating evening hearing about the approach and outcomes and will be of interest and relevance to anyone in a leadership, management or team role. This is definitely not just for HR and CIPD members! Everyone welcome!


As a result of attending this event you will:

  • Understand how the Skippers and AQP’s were prepared both from a leadership and team development  perspective.
  • The skills and behaviours that are considered important and the leadership models, techniques and support the skippers and teams receive.
  • The methods utilised by GRA to pair the Skippers and AQP’s together for 12 months together leading a team of amateur sailors. Although the crew may be amateur sailors and come from all walks of life many are very senior leaders themselves in their professional lives.


Refreshments will be served from 17:30hrs with the event starting promptly at 18:00hrs.
