Keynote speaker Debra Searle is a professional adventurer and a prolific British female keynote speaker on themes, such as how to stay motivated, being flexible to change and overcoming challenges. Using her own experiences she illustrates what we are all capable of.

Debra Searle  is a professional adventurer, author, TV presenter and an experienced British keynote speaker. Debra is not just a woman with an interesting story, she is a refreshing change, being a young, attractive, articulate, and funny speaker. She shares her personal battles and victories, to illustrate what we are all capable of. Her main themes are how to stay motivated, being flexible to change and overcoming challenges, and excelling outside your comfort zone. With slides and video footage the audience is left in no doubt of their ability to achieve the extraordinary both individually and collectively.

Her prior speaking events include the main Microsoft Conference held in Mauritius, the Nokia Global Conference in Sun City and the E-bay conference in Paris. She delivers tailored motivational keynote speeches but also has a wealth of experience within sales, change management and leadership.

One her most popular keynote motivational speech is based on her experience of rowing solo across the Atlantic. After her oarsman husband developed an uncontrollable fear of the ocean, Debra, a novice rower had to face the 3000 miles across the Atlantic alone. What could have taken 6 weeks, took her 3½ months battling against 30’ waves, sharks and force in merely a 23’ plywood boat. Other feats include longest canoe race in the world, sailing around Antarctica, and setting a new world record in a dragon boat across the English Channel.

With attitude ammunition Debra is able to overcome stressful situations, and motivate herself to keep going and overcome huge obstacles. She regularly uses these tools and techniques to grow her own business. They have helped her write two books, become the youngest trustee ever of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and present over 40 programs for the BBC.  In addition it has helped her start her two companies, the first company at the age of 24 and the second at the age of 27.

Her recent book, “The Journey: How to Achieve against All the Odds” provides a graphic account of her experiences in the Atlantic. The book covers the many key messages that will make a difference and guide the reader through topics such as staying motivated, improving teamwork and choosing the right attitude despite how difficult or impossible it may seem.
