Ben Hunt Davis

Ben Hunt-Davis won a gold medal in the Men's VIIIs at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, as a member of the British rowing team, the first British crew to have won this event since 1912.

In 1998, following another disappointing Rowing World Championships, Ben Hunt-Davis and the rest of his GB Eight rowing team realised that if they carried on doing what they were doing, they would keep getting what they’d been getting – which was a lot of 7th place finishes!

So instead, they decided to approach things differently, critically, asking the same simple question with every single conversation, decision and action they took: ‘Will it make the boat go faster?’.

Along their journey they learned the sustainable, dependable techniques that put them on track for their gold medal at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

Ben went on to co-author of the book ‘Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? Ben’s inspirational story of winning against the odds is not only motivational, but practical and applicable to digital organisations that are looking to optimise their customers’ digital experiences around the world.

If you attend Engage Europe 2019 I’m sure you will find his story inspirational!
