ShipMoney delighted to have Debra Searle MBE speaking at its LISW event

As the youngest woman to row SOLO across the Atlantic Ocean, Debra has an amazing story to tell of 30 foot waves, killer sharks and very near misses with cargo ships. Seas the Day is the inspiring story of her adventure. During the session she will be challenging perceptions around skillset vs mindset, the impact this has on teamwork and how we can all move beyond our comfort zones. These strategies have provided her with ongoing lessons for life as she has set up businesses, gone on further adventures, written books and worked as a TV presenter.

Taking part in the Atlantic Rowing Challenge (a two person row across the Atlantic in a self-built boat), in partnership with her then husband was challenge enough but circumstances quickly changed when Andrew developed a severe phobia of the sea and had to withdraw from the race. To many people’s surprise, Debra opted to continue the challenge alone.

Stuart Ostrow, President of ShipMoney, said: “In this year when the shipping industry is empowering women working in the maritime sector, we are incredibly excited to have such a truly inspirational woman speaking at our event.”

You can hear Debra speak at Bakers’ Hall, 9 Harp Lane, London EC3R 6DP on 10th September at 2.30pm. For further details, email
