Roz Savage MBE, an Oxford-educated lawyer, spent the first 11 years of her career working as a management consultant, braving nothing more intrepid than rush hour in London, before an environmental epiphany led to her radical personal transformation into a world-class adventurer. Since 2005 Roz has rowed - solo - across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, making her the world’s foremost female ocean rower. She used her adventures to raise awareness of environmental issues, particularly plastic pollution in the oceans, and climate change. On the ocean Roz had to redefine her comfort zone on a daily basis, and reach deep into her inner sources of strength, self-discipline, and commitment to her goal, as she spent up to 5 months alone at sea on a 23-foot rowboat, thousands of miles from land and humanity, at the mercy of winds, waves and currents. Roz now speaks to companies all over the world who are keen to find new ways to inspire and motivate a more engaged, happy and purpose-driven workforce. Clients include Google, eBay, Disney, Kaiser Permanente, SAP, National Geographic, Hootsuite, the Royal Geographical Society and TED, plus numerous schools, universities and corporations. She shares her stories from the epic adventures she has experienced and the lessons she has learned along the way. These ideas and principles help audiences to take more personal responsibility for their individual and collective success, find higher levels of resilience and courage, more effectively navigate the uncharted waters of change and invest more of themselves into every challenge they undertake. Most recently she taught a class on Courage in Theory and Practice at Yale. In 2010 she was named Adventurer of the Year by National Geographic. In 2012 she was selected from 3,000 candidates to be one of 16 World Fellows at Yale. In 2013 she was appointed an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to fundraising and the environment. She has published two books about her adventures: “Rowing The Atlantic: Lessons Learned on the Open Ocean”, and “Stop Drifting, Start Rowing: One Woman’s Search for Happiness and Meaning Alone on the Pacific”, and blogs regularly at www.rozsavage.com.
