Published by her mother, Rita Savage
As we reach the end of the first week of Roz’s official speaking tour, all is going well and Roz is enjoying a well-earned day off from speaking to allow voice and energy levels a chance to recover – and to get in a good long gym session to work off some of the week’s wonderful hospitality!
Including the “unofficial” pre-tour events in the Bay Area, Roz has now notched up the following figures:
– nearly 1,000 attendees plus webcast viewers
– 7 one-to-one meetings
– 7 different beds
– 3,053 miles (2,462 plane, 121 train, 470 automobile)
Two of her presentations are now available online:
She has also raised some useful funds towards the Indian Ocean row, but unfortunately has just received an unexpected bill for over $6,000 from Australia, where a sponsorship deal for the final leg of Brocade/Sedna’s journey from Madang to Fremantle fell through at the last minute. This bill exceeds her current funds. If anybody would like to help out, they can donate via the PayPal button at https://www.rozsavage.com.
Next week will see Roz in Atlanta, Dallas, and Washington DC. See below for list of cities, followed by details of these and all other forthcoming events. She hopes to see you soon!
