No rest for the wicked. Before my calluses have even started to peel off, I am already starting to plan for the Indian Ocean row, due to start in March 2011. And I need your help.
I am not asking you for money. No, I intend to earn the funds that I need, but I hope you might be able to help me to do so. I would love to organise a series of speaking engagements in the US and Canada for September/October this year, to further my environmental mission and hopefully earn a few dollars along the way. But I can’t possibly handle the logistics for a tour entirely on my own. I need to turn to my Rozlings for help with booking venues, liaising with local media, spreading the word and generally being my local point of contact.
So if you have a company, a club, an organisation, school, society, or even just a bunch of interested friends who would like to hear me speak, please get in touch via the contact form on this website. You’re not committing to anything at this stage. I’m just looking for expressions of interest.
Depending on the kinds of responses I get, I plan to put together a set of packaged options, including financial arrangements, publicity materials, and a step-by-step guide to organising an event. I will make sure that we find a way to make it work financially, regardless of the kind of event, provided that we can cover my travel and accommodation costs and raise a few bucks for my next expedition.
And hopefully have an interesting, informative and entertaining time into the bargain!
(If you’re in Europe, I’m planning a speaking tour there for next year, so watch out for more details nearer the time.)
As promised, here are some photos from my awesome diving trip on Saturday. Dive and photos courtesy of Jan Messersmith. Thanks, Jan, for a day to remember. And check out Jan’s blog too – he got some fantastic photos of my arrival in Madang!
