Neal Petersen is an inspirational business speaker who draws from extraordinary life experiences.


Neal Petersen has completed two amazing journeys in his life: a single-handed yacht race around the world, 27,000 miles, 9 months at sea, alone, and in the smallest yacht he designed and built himself. And an even more arduous and eventful trip of overcoming racial prejudice during the Apartheid era in South Africa, poverty, and a childhood physical disability.


Neal Petersen demonstrates how success is realised—through innovation, balancing risk against return and being flexible enough to adapt to constantly shifting winds. He lays out the importance of a clearly communicated vision and direction, followed by detailed planning, preparation, passion and execution, using his personal story to show audiences how they, too, can achieve their goals.
