The role of skipper in the bt global challenge race has been likened to one of the toughest management jobs in the world.
As skipper of quadstone in the 2000-2001 event, and the only female skipper ever to win a leg of this race, Alex Phillips experienced the best and worst days of her life. Her presentation, tells the fascinating story of how to build a high-performing team and manage a complex project with team members still in full-time employment and living all over the world.
Leading a group of amateur sailors from all walks of life to become a winning team is no mean feat. Alex talks about motivation and focus in the most arduous of circumstances and against a rollercoaster emotional background of exhilaration and frustration.
The honesty of her delivery and the huge relevance of her leadership lessons will inspire anyone who is leading a team, no matter what the environment.
