  ‘Velocity Made Good – How much have you achieved that is on course?’ – is an intense experiential training solution designed to accelerate high performance in leaders, managers and teams. Developed by outstanding crew from the 2004/5 Global Challenge Round-the-World yacht race, the team leverage the skills and expertise acquired during the year long challenge and apply them intelligently to business situations.   V.M.G. offers leaders, managers and teams 1 – 7 day sailing experiences, Global Challenge  speaking and ‘on-shore’ (classroom based) interactive training sessions based on core competencies and real scenarios.   

Experiential learning events - like sailing - are designed to provide a metaphor for work challenges, giving people the time and space to practice specific aspects of performance in a non-work environment such as taking risks, leading, communicating, planning under pressure, etc. Our facilitated training days offer intense experiential learning at various levels, from high performing teams to crisis management to leadership skills.   Sailing is quite simply the most effective sport at facilitating leader and team development and learning. It encompasses all the key ingredients of high performance; planning, motivation, delegation, teamwork, leadership and communication.
