Clive Cosby

Consultant and Motivational Speaker

Forming and leading a team competing in the world’s toughest yacht race was a challenge in itself for Clive. The Southern Ocean tested him and his crew beyond anything they could have prepared for, challenging their resolve. Team Stelmar went on to win the Trans-Atlantic leg, capitalising on their experience of adversity, and turn it into victory. Clive tells of building the team, leading them against the odds and how they came through their challenges to achieve this result. 

Since the Global Challenge, Clive has gone on to lead other teams competing afloat and, having drawn out the leadership lessons from skippering Team Stelmar in the 2004-2005 Global Challenge, brings his leadership experience and skills to life in the classroom. Recounting the hard learnt critical leadership lessons, tough decision making and inspirational leadership in adversity to multinational, corporate audiences.

Prior to the Global Challenge Clive was involved in a number of other offshore races, leading from the front and even leading from a desk with a career in BT sales team. He lives near the water with his family in Hampshire, UK.
