We all have moments in our lives where something changes, where we have a profound shift in perspective, and for explorer Ness Knight (www.nessknight.com) that happened whilst solo adventuring; Ness has stand-up paddleboarded over 1,000 miles, cycled the USA solo, became the first female in history to swim the Thames River and cycled across the desolate and unforgiving heat of the Namib Desert alone. Next year she will row 7,000+ nautical miles solo, non-stop and unassisted across the vast Pacific Ocean, more people have stood on the moon than rowed this great ocean.

But what is behind the mindset of an explorer? What motivates a solo explorer to step into the unknown again and again? Having pushed the limits of mind and body in some of the most remote corners of our planet, facing extreme conditions, difficult decisions and sobering realities, she gained an unusual insight into what makes us unique, as well as what connects each and every one of us.

Ness' talk takes a deep dive into the experiences and psyche of an extreme adventurer performing at the edge of what is deemed possible.

By attending this event, we hope to inspire you and provide you with ideas of how to succeed in your own adventures - business or leisure!
