Neal Petersen

Neal Petersen

Neal Petersen is an award-winning author, solo "Around Alone" racing yachtsman, founder of an investment bank and so much more. Few people have realized their dreams, but even fewer have raced solo around the world and in a home built boat! It is an unparalleled adventure, the longest, most extreme race for any man or woman, 27,000 miles in a boat, nine months at sea ~ alone!

Neal has demonstrated what can happen when one truly lives by goals, planning and preparation, believing there are no obstacles so great that they cannot be overcome. In sharing his high-impact extraordinary adventure, Neal delivers a powerful message that, "In life there are no barriers ~ only solutions!"

As a gifted speaker and storyteller, Neal has over fifteen years experience internationally delivering his history-making story to corporations such as IBM, Genentech, Cisco, Motorola and American Express - all to standing ovations. His high-energy, inspirational keynotes are based on real life experiences which set him apart from speakers who speak on topics.
