Dee Caffari MBE

Dee Caffari, yachtswoman and former school teacher, is one of Britain's most inspirational women: she achieved a double world first when she became the first woman in history to sail solo, non-stop both ways around the world.

Dee is an experienced and popular international speaker. She has spoken at intimate client dinners and addressed huge conference halls. Her warm delivery brings the drama and challenges of her world-record-setting voyages alive.

Gregarious, courageous but also candid about the challenges she has faced, Dee delivers powerful messages in an entertaining way - and her talks engage those with no yachting background whatsoever.

After Dinner & Award Host - With anecdotes drawn from three circumnavigations of the globe, Dee tailors her talks to inspire and entertain her audience. Clients appreciate Dee's humour as well as her engaging, natural style.

Keynote Business Talks: Leadership & Teamwork -  Dee has led others through hostile conditions, inspiring an amateur team of sailors in the Global Challenge, for example, and overseeing a dramatic rescue too. She led an all-woman crew to beat the record sailing around Britain and Ireland in June 2009. Good communication, focus, careful preparation, goal setting and developing others' talents are key - as well as a sense of fun!

Courage in Difficult Times - Sailing solo for nearly six months to become the first woman to sail 'the wrong way' round the world, Dee has faced icebergs, intense sleep deprivation, technical failures and the worst that the Southern Ocean can muster. The Vendée Globe is a war of attrition - a competitive race in an hostile environment. Dee speaks from experience of staying motivated when things get tough, achieving high performance, self-belief and succeeding against the odds.
