Presenter; Stew Darling, Unstoppable Force

The purpose of this series is to provide the foundations of what is needed for a healthy functioning business, for those new to business or who don’t have the basics in place.


This Unstoppable Force Workshop delivers the building blocks for attendees to create a ‘Captaincy’ within your business.  The post -COVID world requires so much more than ‘traditional’ leadership.  It requires us to truly captain our team.  What does that take?  Just three steps.

Ever felt stuck in mediocrity?  Ever wondered how it feels to be an Unstoppable Force?  With over 20 years as a Covert Operator in the British Army and another decade in business, Stew Darling has 'bottled' what it takes.  This workshop introduces you to the three critical steps it takes to become the captain that these unprecedented times need.

This workshop is not a Hackfest that promises the earth and delivers soundbites.  At Unstoppable Force we live by the three Critical Steps that keep Cover Operators alive in the field.  If you are happy with mediocrity, this is not for you.  If you are looking to re-capture the passion of your business and seeking to raise the standard of your team; we welcome you open-armed.  You can expect a level of accountability that might cause discomfort, lean in.


You will learn;

  • Increase productivity and accountability through the identification, harnessing and exploiting of Unreasonable opportunities.
  • Improve standards to move you and your team away from mediocrity.
  • Create a more collaborative healthy team with less sick days
  • Build a disciplined team.

So you can;

  • Become the Captain the team has been looking for.
  • Build and maintain a highly focused team.
  • Create discipline through accountability which increases productivity.
  • Unlock the positive Unreasonableness of every member of your team (and family).
