Rona talks from her experiences on very diverse expeditions in extreme conditions. She has become a well-known world adventurer, international speaker and author – unsurprisingly – a journey beset by obstacles and challenges. Rona’s fascinating story, awe-inspiring anecdotes and down-to-earth delivery style generate an instant interest and rapport whatever the audience.
Since Rona got out of her own comfort zone and pushed herself to the limits to succeed, the lessons she learnt through her experiences of winning, losing, and being injured but never giving up, qualifies her to share these principles of leadership and teamwork, and to show others how they too can achieve their goals.
Rona will help your organisation improve their leadership development using lessons learnt on expeditions undertaken in extreme conditions. Using Keynotes, Interactive-Keynotes and Master-classes she will help your organisation understand what works and what doesn’t work and how to overcome obstacles and challenges by thinking differently.
Rona’s journey has taken her from being a stay-at-home mum, to Business Owner, single mum, round-the-world yachtswoman, author, explorer and now an inspirational keynote speaker – a journey beset by obstacles and challenges. She has worked with Entrepreneurs, SME’s, CEO Groups and FTSE 100 Companies inspiring them to get out of their comfort zone to achieve their goals.
For the last fourteen years she has inspired audiences at many Conferences to get out of their comfort zone to achieve their goals in the UK, Middle East and Australasia.
She also recently introduced the Arctic Leadership Challenges to help organisations and individuals understand what works and what doesn’t work in leadership and teamwork, and how, by thinking differently, you can overcome your obstacles and challenges.
Rona is a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association sitting on both the Membership and Ethics Committee. She is also a member of the Global Speakers Federation, the Society of Authors, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the International Association of Cape Horners.
