"I believe that key lessons learnt from the world of sport and adventure can be transferred to the business place.

Issues about leading teams to maximise their full potential come across powerfully from world beaters who have achieved the absolute pinnacle of their chosen careers."

Tracy EdwardsI design programmes in partnership with a company's needs and become involved with the design of the programmes at their conception.

Theory about leadership and teams has its place, and countless articles and books have been written about the subject. I realise the importance of bringing examples of practical experience to my talks.

I enjoy being interactive with audiences and also relish discussion groups and Q&A. I have found that a practical and participative experience has longer and far reaching benefits to individuals and teams.

My ethos when sailing around the world - it is better to be prepared than scared. You can have as much safety equipment as you like but if you don’t know how to use it then it’s not going to save you.

Tracy wishes Team SCA's skipper and crew good luck in taking part in the 2014/15 Volvo Round the World Race.
