Speaker information

Geoff Holt MBE Yachtsmen of the Year,"Impossible Dream? A Voyage through Life" Geoff made history when he sailed 1,445 miles solo around Great Britain in 2007 before going on to sail across the Atlantic in 2010. This is a major undertaking for anyone, but even more inspiring when you consider that Geoff is a passionate yachtsman who uses a wheelchair. Geoff’s story is highly motivational and told with humour, thoughtful insight, great photographs and film footage. He has faced adversity, challenged limits and continues to inspire others to maintain a positive attitude no matter what the challenges ahead.
