Roz Savage: Ocean Rowing
Best known as the first (and so far only) woman to row solo across the world’s “Big Three” oceans – the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian – Rosalind Savage inspires audiences to think again about what is possible, and encourages them to step up fully into the potential of their highest selves.
While crossing a total of fifteen thousand miles of the ocean, she 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. She discovered the vital importance of keeping a cool head in life-endangering situations, to optimise her capacity for smart decision-making, accurate risk assessment and creative problem-solving.
Roz Savage is the first (and so far only) woman to row solo across the world’s “Big Three” oceans: Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian. She holds four Guinness World Records and was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire for services to fundraising and the environment.
It was an unexpected career move for a former management consultant who doesn’t particularly enjoy exercise. She was inspired to brave the oceans when she realised two things: 1) we are all capable of much more than we tend to believe we are, and 2) we need to make some changes if we’re going to live healthy lives on a thriving planet. As a result, she used her voyages to expand her own limits and to promote sustainable living.
Nowadays, Roz writes, speaks, and lectures on sustainability, courage, resilience, and change.
