So we’ve been exploring a whole range of approaches that harness the latest thinking in areas such as neuroscience and positive psychology, right through to project management disciplines and sports coaching techniques.

Held at the iconic Marlow Rowing Club, the home club of Sir Steve Redgrave, the day will transform the way you think about team chemistry, optimising team and individual performance and the difference between going all out and going the distance.
