Rowing Team Days

“Taking people out in a rowing boat is a fantastic way to change the dynamic of a team and encourages individuals to support and trust each other to work in harmony.”
Greg Searle

The day is hosted by Greg at Eton Dorney lake, the London 2012 Olympic venue. It provides a fantastic opportunity to be coached by an Olympic champion whose experiences as an athlete and an executive coach will genuinely help you to become a winning team. Rowing is an activity everyone can participate in and is a great way for teams to truly connect in this unique high performance environment away from the office.

This is a team-building event that guarantees long-lasting results by:

  • Providing you with Greg’s sporting and business insights to inspire your performance
  • Helping your team to really work together and give their best in a supportive and fun environment
  • Giving you the time and space to learn from each other and develop strong connections
  • Building confidence through a combination of mental and physical challenge

Who is this day for?

Any teams or groups who want to try something different and learn valuable lessons to take back into their working and personal lives. Rowing is a fantastic way to get individuals to look at how their own behaviour and actions might impact on the rest of the team. It can be used as a metaphor for day to day working and provides a platform to compare how your behaviour may differ when you are in this new environment rather then the office

Why should you book?

Attendees will have an unforgettable experience on Eton Dorney where Britain enjoyed such success in London 2012. But as well as great memories of being coached by an Olympic champion in this environment, the day will challenge participants' mindsets so everyone will go away with clear ideas about how to improve individual and team performances in the workplace and beyond

What you will take away?

The day combines coaching both on and off the water in a fun, safe yet challenging environment. Participants will benefit from Greg's unique combination of executive and rowing coaching experience and will ultimately have a chance to race against each other!! All concerns about fitness, age, health and fears of water can be addressed prior to the event and the coxing role is also available if anyone has a good reason not to row.

“We had an amazing day at Eton Dorney. Greg is very happy to share stories of how he got it wrong as well as how he got it right, which you don’t always get from people who’ve been as successful as he has. We all went away feeling we had some really useful things to work on personally and as a team.”
Keith Wishart, Cosine UK

“Greg’s got some great experiences that correlate well with the challenges many leaders face - dealing with adversity, sustaining performance and building great teams. Greg can illuminate these subjects and challenge the audience to firstly reflect and then create change options for the future in a very motivating way.”

“I have worked with Greg Searle on a number of occasions such as customer meetings, team development workshops, and Olympic planning sessions and he has always been an inspirational and charismatic individual. Greg’s achievements are phenomenal yet he continues to be a polite and superbly unassuming individual. I shall definitely be looking to work with Greg again and can thoroughly recommend him as a top class person to work with.”

“I just wanted to personally thank you for your outstanding contribution to the recent Macmillan Professionals’ Conference. I thought the Excellence Awards Ceremony was flawless and many professionals and staff members have commented on their enjoyment of the evening and how it moved them. I also think your motivational session on the final day was an excellent conclusion to the conference with all of us leaving feeling motivated and committed to Macmillan’s work.

“Greg’s style is very natural and he’s an excellent communicator with great pace and gravitas. He surpassed our expectations - he met the brief brilliantly and brought our learning agilities to life in such an inspiring way but with humour and humility. He was both inspiring and thought provoking and we are so pleased we booked him for our event as he created a huge buzz throughout the day.”
