Humphrey Walters

Others say

"Thank you for speaking at the recent Specialist School Achievement Programme Awards. The day was enjoyed by all and a fitting testimony to the work of the schools and Specialist Schools Achievement Programme team. I wanted to write personally to thank you and let you know that your session on leadership was particularly well reviewed. A comment from one delegate included 'I thought Humphrey Walters was outstanding and he made the event for me. I left inspired, motivated and eager to book him for the whole staff INSET at my school.' It was a pleasure to meet you and i will treasure the book, which i'm enjoying immensely. I hope we can call on you again for future events."
Susan Cousin, Programme Director, Specialist Schools Achievement Programme

The Business of Winning is keynote speaker Humphrey Walters’ game. For over three decades he has successfully inspired and motivated businesses and teams in leadership and management, using lessons learned in the world’s toughest yacht race and with the Olympic Judo team, who left London 2012 with a swathe of medals.

Working with organisations all over the world, he is a knowledgeable and respected expert on the processes required to develop high performance and winning teams.

Humphrey has worked with the Olympic Judo team; the England world cup winning rugby team; premier division football teams; government departments; schools, and businesses of every size. He also worked to develop the team for JCB which gained the world land speed record for a diesel car at Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA.

"From the many comments I have received from Headteachers, I know it was viewed as a highly successful event - your presentation was inspirational, thought provoking, highly entertaining and I know that it will promote future discussions and action within Kent."
Kent County Council

Putting his theories to the test, Humphrey spent almost a year at sea, competing in the 33,000 mile epic  BT Global Yacht Challenge, using the unmerciful and hostile environment to study how teams work when thrust into extreme situations, and how trust and inspired leadership work together to create fusion and success.

His book ‘Global Challenge’ has sold over 30,000 copies and is standard reading in many organisations.

Humphrey has also co-founded MaST International - a worldwide organisation devoted to the development of Management and Skills Training for individuals, teams and organisations, and has written extensively about High Performing Teams and Leaders.
