SARAH OUTEN MBE - Endurance Athlete

Solo ocean-rower and triple world record breaker who became the the first woman and youngest person in the world to row solo across the Indian Ocean; rowing 4000 miles across the Indian Ocean in just 124 days. 

Sarah has overcome huge obstacles and endured extreme conditions in remote environments, often alone for months at a time. A typhoon on the North Pacific forced a mid Ocean rescue from her rowing boat in 2012 and a hurricane on the Atlantic this summer forced a pre-emptive evacuation after 143 days at sea. She has also kayaked some of the most treacherous waterways in the world and cycled across North America during one of the harshest Winters on record.

Finally, after four-and-a-half years, and over 25000 miles, Sarah is now back home. The final leg of the journey saw her cycle and kayak from Falmouth to London, paddling under Tower Bridge at midday on 3rd November 2015 to complete her journey.

Sarah is a passionate and energetic speaker with the ability to engage any audience with her versatile and accessible approach.

Without doubt there are many aspects of Sarah’s talk from which any business can learn. Sarah managed to weave our ‘Guiding Principles’ into her presentation and therefore make the connection between the challenges she faced and those that people may face within our business.
