Book Alex Alley
Event Host & After Dinner Speaker
Alex Alley is a British World Champion sailor, Round the World Yachtsman, and co author of Boat to Boardroom. He has spoken all over the world on his racing experiences, from teaching himself to sail to representing and winning for his country by the age of 19. Leading a team around the world through the freezing expanse of the Southern Ocean and around Cape Horn, dealing with serious medical emergencies thousands of miles from help, yet still managing to keep the team motivated and continue to achieve records.
Alex talks candidly about living, and working, with the same team 24/7 for up to 8 weeks at a time through storms and life threatening conditions. How do you motivate a team when they are 1000 miles from civilisation, 3 crew down, one seriously injured, it’s freezing cold outside with huge waves pounding the boat day and night. Still a month from the finish and dry land, 2000 miles behind the rest of the fleet, the team are completely alone, but they don’t give up…
Join him as he takes you on-board with powerful video footage and feel the highest highs and the lowest lows as the team battle against the odds – and beat them.
He is now aiming to set a whole bunch of World Records before heading off to break the solo non-stop round the world record in 2018 – currently just under 138 days!

“(Alex’s) presentation style is impressive, a mix of adventure stories, hardship, success, setback and the one over riding message that you should never, ever, give up. Alex was an inspiration to our team, and whatever challenges we face there was motivation and techniques to help succeed for all of us.”
