There are so many similarities between Sport and business, running a campaign is like running a company. My Paralympic success was a result of being able to perform under pressure, having a strategy, setting goals and being able to prioritise. Weather its one on one or coaching a team, I will help improve managerial skills, explain how to set smart achievable goals and most importantly help build confidence, respect and self worth. It doesn’t matter if you’re the CEO of the company or the new employee starting at the bottom, everyone is an important cog in the wheel to the success of the company.


I believe anything in life is possible, if you really want it and are willing to commit. As an athlete talent will get you so far, but it’s the winning mentality and can do attitude which decides the Champions. Likewise business is always striving for that extra edge and maximum return, which will only come from a positive performance mindset. My talks are unique and tailored to my clientele, delivering key messages that will motivate and inspire. I can interact with a wide range of people and organisations, from delivering motivational talks to businesses, after dinner speeches at functions and awards evenings, to entertaining and motivating school children.


Sailing is a real leveller, fantastic at breaking down barriers and all about communication. It doesn’t matter if you’re the CEO of the company or the new employee, you have to work together and communicate as a team to achieve the best performance. The day is about learning new skills, adopting a can do attitude and a willingness to perform outside of your comfort zone. It’s about learning the behavioural aspects of performance. Whether it’s corporate hospitality or Team building, join me for an inspirational day sailing in the Solent, on an ocean racing yacht.


“Helena Lucas is a huge inspiration and a fantastic asset for the sport of sailing. She’s great fun and lights up any room she walks into!”

Sir Ben Ainslie

Four times Olympic gold medallist and ex British Sailing Team mate

“Charles Russell have been delighted with their long term association with Helena, up to the Beijing Olympics and then on to her great victory in the spectacular Paralympic sailing at Weymouth and Portland last August. Her combination of excellence and inspiration has always appealed to us and we look forward to working with her and more success in the future.”

Mike Scott

Chairman, Charles Russell LLP

“We all enjoyed a lively, enthusiastic gallop through her fascinating experiences from Beijing 2008 to London 2012 which enthralled an audience that ranged from their mid 20s to active pensioners.”

David Warren

Moody Owners Association

“Helena gave a talk to my sales force in November 2016. The team were fascinated by her story, her enthusiasm and her will to win. She was very accommodating and gave the talk at short notice. It was what we asked for – a demonstration of determination. She may be small in stature but her words were powerful!”

Steve Upson

Polypipe Divisional Sales Director South
