Why ctmers are Olympic rowers...
I met double Olympic rowing champion Steve Williams last Summer. My expectation was that I would probably hear something motivational and perhaps even some inspirational soundbites, but that would be about it. After all, what’s a bunch of posh blokes in a boat got to do with building and running software at comparethemarket.com! However, I will readily admit that I was quite mistaken and discovered that the world of rowing provided some striking similarities and a great opportunity to learn and apply different behaviours, rituals and ceremonies. As our meeting ended I was left wondering how our Product Teams could sample some of what I had seen and heard?
Some of our teams and now working with Steve and learning how they can make their team boat go that little bit faster. Look out for comparethemarket.com on the water at #rio2016
