Sarah is a globally renowned speaker for corporate events at home and abroad. Her stories are of turning dreams into goals, of facing fear and embracing failures, of pushing on through impossibles and going back for another try. Sarah Outen’s expeditions have pushed boundaries on possibility and potential, almost killed her on a few occasions and taught her invaluable lessons on risk, resilience, team work and forging your own path. Her most recent London2London: Via the World expedition saw her row, cycle and kayak around the Northern Hemisphere over 4.5 years and is a story of having a go, failing, having another go and ultimately of learning when to let go.
Stories of her expeditions resonate with all audiences and can be tailored to any event. Since proposing to her girlfriend while alone on the Pacific Ocean in 2013 Sarah has become a role model for LGBT issues and is admired beyond her expeditioning, for her openness at sharing her inner struggles and mental crashes as well as the excitement and triumph.
Sarah is currently writing her second book ‘Dare to Do’ which tells the story of her 4.5 year London2London:Via the World expedition.
