Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? enabled us to break down the barriers & misconceptions surrounding personal development. Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? delivered everything that we’d hoped for in our endeavour to attaining clarity on our strategy, goals and culture. Tom’s two facilitated workshops were the highlight of our engagement and exceeded all of my expectations. Inspirational.

Marcus Whitehead
Partner at Barnett Waddingham

We had no goal and no single unifying thought. I wanted the opportunity to galvanise everyone. The Crazy Goal is everything we stand for as a brand. We use it in our recruitment, including our assessment centres, we use it throughout our training and how we recognise and reward people, and we rolled it out as comprehensively as we could. We were on a journey and the Crazy Goal replays over the longer term.

The stand-out point about working with Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? is the time, energy and desire to really get under the skin of Jewson in order to develop and devise the best solutions to the challenges we faced at every stage of the programme – through the initial diagnostic phase, throughout the entire delivery, and including the reviews of progress during the programme also. In addition, the unique backgrounds & achievements of some of the programme facilitators gives them a real “wow factor” in working with participants to help them achieve their best performances more often.

“Will it make the boat go faster?” quickly became part of our language in almost every conversation across the business. As a result, we waste less time and effort on things that won’t help us to achieve our goal and more time on the things that will.
