As an ex-Navy Clearance Diver Brendan knows all you need to know about ‘high performance’ teams.

In this presentation Brendan will briefly invite you into the amazing World of Clearance Diving. How he was trained and taught to lead teams to perform in often dangerous environments.   

Brendan will highlight 3 case studies from around the world, covering 3 different operations that he was a part of. He will share his unique personal experiences while also highlighting how the training and skills required in high performance teams played out for him in these real-world applications.

This insightful presentation will provide a balanced perspective covering what went well and what didn’t.  Brendan will share his ‘lessons learnt’, whilst attempting to bridge the learning from a military context into as civilian one.


With a background in the Royal Australian Navy, Brendan spent most of his time deployed overseas working with foreign cultures in a variety of locations.

Through regular mental and physical resilience training as a Navy Clearance Diver, Brendan found a passion for working in high performance teams and motivating others to achieve their best.

Brendan’s sense of commitment and personal responsibility that comes from working in such teams has continued to develop post military, working in a variety of industries from the Oil and Gas training sector to local government. These sectors have provided a rewarding opportunity to work for the benefit of the local community.

Brendan is a self-driven & highly motivated professional who thrives on establishing and developing genuine team-based cultures. His unique experiences have reinforced the benchmark for teamwork that Brendan continues to strive to instil within organisations today.
