Ian’s experience:

Ian has spoken at hundreds of events from international summits to corporate away days and from workshops to schools and charities. He is an inspirational keynote speaker with a style that is relaxed yet gripping, casual but compelling, witty yet savage.


His talks are based around his part in a unique attempt to become the first boat in history to row unsupported from mainland Africa across 3,000 miles of the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean in under 30 days. The ‘lessons from the Atlantic’, learned in the white hot pressure of ocean rowing racing with lack of sleep, starvation, dehydration, team dynamics and a commitment to make the boat go faster translate into ‘everyday’ life at work, home and sport.

Ian was forced to apply those hard earned lessons to his own situation when in April 2017 he was diagnosed with leukaemia. The diagnosis and the challenges ahead put to the test his belief that his Atlantic Experience is a reflection of taking on the challenges of ‘normal’ life, he’s still here, they work!

Audience impact:

Audiences will be inspired, captivated, engaged and most importantly they will be able to relate the story back to their own lives, both at work and at home. Ian will leave a positive and lasting impact and leave the audience with a new insight into their own capability, their potential and their importance in the world.

This is a human story – it is about how circumstances, relationships, challenge and adversity impact on us on a daily basis at work and at home with a backdrop set against the enormity or rowing across the ocean and taking on an horrific illness.


‘Ian delivered a superb, witty and very interesting keynote speech.

What he also did brilliantly was weave all the key business themes of our summit seamlessly into his rowing narrative.

In the process, he connected with everyone in the room both on a business level and a personal one.’
