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.

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. 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.

Roz has spoken to tens of thousands of people across six continents, including Google, eBay, National Geographic, Hootsuite, the Royal Geographical Society and TED, plus numerous schools, universities and corporations.  

Roz will always create a keynote to meet the objectives and requirements of each individual client, and only talks about sustainability and the environment when that is part of the brief.

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.
