Crew-Glue - Superyacht team development

About Crew-Glue

Keeping your best people

Close-quarters, long hours and busy programmes with little time off, combined with different personalities and expectations, make for a challenging environment

The industry is growing, there are more opportunities opening up all the time and yacht-hopping is not unusual.

Delivering results

The highest levels of safety, service and collaboration are possible only when the crew trust each other, understand how their roles work together and are communicating properly. Crew-Glue encourages accountability and commitment to the job, the crew and the Captain.

Why Crew-Glue?

The cost of loss of output while a replacement crew member gets up to speed, combined with the logistical cost of recruiting and absorbing a new crew member can be measured in terms of both time and money.

Experienced Captains tell us that developing and investing in their people is one of the most effective ways to keep them. Enjoy the results of a fully engaged crew, with shared ownership and accountability, who are proud to serve with you.

What people say?

I would like to thank you so much for the fun, inspiring presentation on “Why are they like that ?? ”

Most of our crew came with an open mind and intrigue … It was such and interesting course on understanding your self and others personalities and behavior … A huge benefit to all the crew and crew relations on board … Thank you thank you.

I would recommend all crew and boats to attend this course!!!!

“We recently had Sara in the office to do some team training, which was unlike anything any of us had experienced before. It was engaging, thought provoking and just great fun. I wish she had been in the yachting industry when I was on board yachts, it could have helped a great deal with some of the inevitable crew issues, and could have explained a few things! I would highly recommend her to anyone within a team environment – even to those already working well together (as ours do!), as there is still a great deal that can be taken from it.”

Nicola Morgan
Director & Recruitment Manager / Wilson Halligan Yacht Recruitment

“Sara brought her wealth of training knowledge and expertise to our fledgling opening team at Soneva Jani, as well as her understanding of the Soneva Brand. From the initial leadership training for the Heads of Teams, through the spirited team build days and the focus of the brand awareness sessions, her enthusiasm and energy sparked every host. We are varied and random crowd, from experienced hoteliers to fresh behind the ears straight out of school teenagers from over 15 different countries and a span of over 30 years in age difference, Sara instilled a sense of family, of understanding and enthusiasm that will remain our firm foundation as we move forward to open the best hotel in the world. Her training sessions were filled with creative ways of communicating the message, learning without realizing your learning because you are having far too much fun. I hope that the effervescent bubble of joy that she sparked within the team will last us a long, long time.”

Olivia Richli
Pre opening & General Manager / Soneva Jani

“Sara is an extraordinary developer of talent. She worked with us as an employee and subsequently as a contractor, developing our staff in all areas of the business. Sara is particularly adept at raising the performance of younger team members and she put in place a high performance employee development programme which remains one of the most successful we operate. During her time with us she set up a number of highly successful Learning & Development programmes, all of which have sustained.

Sara has a unique ability to engage personally and generate enthusiasm in teams across a wide range of cultural backgrounds. She is also effective at training staff at every level in the corporate hierarchy.

In the L&D space there is no-one I would recommend more highly than Sara.”

Bruce Bromley
Chief Financial Officer & Deputy CEO / Soneva

“Sara’s genuine and friendly personality, along with her analytical approach towards understanding people’s characteristics make her a very inspiring and motivating coach. She helped me greatly with identifying both my strengths and weaknesses, how to work on improvement, and how to match my qualities with my career ambitions. Through sessions with Sara I have learned a lot and made great steps in moving my personal and professional development forward.”

Martijn van Berlo
Social and Environmental Sustainability Manager / Soneva Kiri

“Professional and Inspiring are the first two things you think of when describing Sara. Training and development in the Hospitality sector is always challenging especially when dealing with multi national groups. Sara’s grasp of what is needed and how to achieve great results proved correct time and time again. Whether this was dealing with Senior management or Junior teams, all left her sessions feeling inspired. I for one believe that if you can come away from a session wanting to achieve more and be inspired again and again then you have a great trainer….simply She is that. Great”
