Roz Savage MBE is an ocean rower, environmental campaigner, author and speaker. She holds four world records for ocean rowing, including first woman to row solo across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. She has rowed over 15,000 miles, taken around 5 million oarstrokes, and spent cumulatively over 500 days of her life at sea in a 23-foot rowboat.
A latecomer to the life of adventure, she worked as a management consultant in London for 11 years before deciding there was more to life than a steady income and a house in the suburbs. In 2010 she was named Adventurer of the Year by National Geographic. She was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire in 2013.
