Book Debra Searle
Debra Searle came into the public’s eye when she was left to row the last 111 day leg of the Atlantic Rowing Race on her own and with no previous experience, following her husbands retirement from the race. Taking this experience, as well as the lessons she has learnt and applied to her two businesses, she is a thoughful, fascinating and powerful motivational speaker for hire, discussing the tools and techniques she uses to overcome failure and adopt a positive and motivating attitude.
Debra was only 23 when she became Managing Director of her first company, The Well Hung Art Company. Now she successfully runs two companies, as well as working as a TV presenter for the BBC. Debra dedicates a lot of time to researching and preparing for each speech she takes on. Each one is highly important to her. Debra also thinks it is important to speak to delegates on a one-to-one basis at each event.
According to Debra “Now that I am back on dry land it is difficult to comprehend having spent that much time at sea in a plywood rowing boat. I must have been mad! But over time I have pinpointed the tools and techniques that made the difference between me jacking it all in and reaching my ultimate goal. These are tools that I have come to apply to all areas of my life – business, leisure time, home life, friendships, and the choices I make and so on”.

Inspirational speaker who captivated the audience and re-enforced the key messages of our conference in her own unique style.
Debra was excellent and very inspirational but not in a cheesy way. I really felt that I could relate her experiences to my working day.

Debra presentation was perfectly aligned to our event objectives. Clearly Debra achievements are amazing and interesting in themselves. More importantly, Debra has the human touch and connected well with everyone in the audience. She held the audience from start to finish and balanced humour with more serious messages. She scored 5 out of 5 from every one of the 170 delegates. This is unheard of!
Debra was well received at our Conference due to her personal style as much as the content of her story. She was able to link her story to key messages/themes of our Conference in a subtle way and was a fantastic addition to our agenda. We were delighted with her input.
