Neal Petersen

International Adventurer and Author

Neal Petersen is an entrepreneur, award-winning author, solo around the world racing yachtsman and founder of an investment bank. Only a few people have realized their dreams, but even fewer have raced solo alone around the world and in a home built boat! It is an unparalleled adventure, the longest race for any man or woman, 27,000 miles in a boat, 9 months at sea ~ alone!

"Neal's presentation was absolutely outstanding both from a content perspective & his ability to relate numerous inspirational messages to our conference themes."

In sharing his high-impact extraordinary adventure, Neal delivers a powerful message that "In life there are no barriers ~ only solutions!"

How he presents

Neal arrives by walking through the audience carrying a treasure chest to the stage. He does not speak from behind a podium, instead uses the stage as a platform, and at times interacts with his audience. The combination of the treasure chest, its content, which Neal pulls from as examples of overcoming barriers and real footage of Neal rounding Cape Horn made history at IBM. Plus, he is extremely easy to work with. This is a fascinating story of the sea, and one man's hope, determination and joy for life.


He presents in English.
