    There is no better way to acquire advanced expertise on self-mastery, resilience, and stress management than to spend 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. Since 2005 Roz Savage has become the world's foremost female ocean rower, having rowed - solo - across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans.

    An Oxford-trained lawyer, Savage spent the first 11 years of her career working as a management consultant, braving nothing more intrepid than rush hour on the London Underground, before an environmental epiphany led to a radical personal transformation into a world class adventurer.

    On the ocean, Savage 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. Throughout her voyages, her insightful and inspirational blog posts garnered an enthusiastic worldwide audience.

    Savage now combines her self-taught life skills with principles from neuroscience, psychology, personal development and leadership theory, to inform and inspire corporate audiences. She has spoken to tens of thousands of people across six continents, including Google, eBay, National Geographic, the Royal Geographical Society, TED and TEDx, plus numerous schools, universities and corporations.

    In 2010, Savage 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.
