About Mark Denton :
Mark is an inspirational conference and keynote speaker on leadership and teamwork from Hampshire in the UK. Since 2002 he has shared his highly motivational multi-media account of leading a team to success in the prestigious ‘BT Global Challenge’ to audiences worldwide - and to universal applause.
Known as the ‘world’s toughest yacht race’, it’s a 32000 mile, multi-stage event that traverses the worlds’ oceans against the spin of the earth. Staged over 10 gruelling months, it’s contested by 12 teams with identical equipment and budgets. It’s also a race that anyone can take part in, the crews being all amateurs, 70% having never sailed before. And with just one professional skipper on each team of 18 to pull it all together, it’s the ultimate test of leadership and teamwork.
