Rona is living proof of whatever you want to be you can. Changing your life from an unexceptional middle-aged single mother to an adventurer is beset by obstacles and challenges. Rona has raced a yacht the ‘wrong way’ round the world where she was involved in a major crash, two days after completing her circumnavigation she trekked one of the toughest trails in the world where she encountered bears and cougars. She has helped to raise thousands of pounds for various charities from her expeditions and became an explorer when she helped organise and took part in the Nordkapp expedition opening a dog-sled trail high in the Arctic Circle to the northernmost tip of Europe – a trail thought to be impossible but which was successfully accomplished.
Full of energy and excitement Rona’s presentations are enthralling, entertaining and memorable as she shares her experiences from her very diverse expeditions to reinforce the messages about teamwork, tenacity, leadership, overcoming obstacles, having the right attitude, self-belief, setting the right goals, communication and performing in extreme conditions to get where you want to be. Rona illustrates her presentations with images and video clips taken en route.
