Biography

Sally Kettle speaks and writes of her adventures at sea. Her experiences have inspired and changed the lives of others. As the first woman to row the Atlantic Ocean twice from East to West, Sally tells of rough seas, wild storms, harsh living and encounters with marine wildlife, including sharks. Yet it is Sally’s experiences of people, which provide illumination and insight.

Sally has raised over £500,000 for charitable causes. She is an Ambassador for Girlguiding, and Chair of the Trustees at The London Sports Trust, and has served on humanitarian aid missions.

She has delivered hundreds of talks around the world, to corporates, community groups and schools. Her ideas have been developed into workshop and training options, commentary, and thought leadership. Recently her ideas found a global audience via the millions of listeners to Radio 4. Sally’s FourThought talk, “Does Hope Help?” expounded her hard won personal philosophy of action overcoming procrastination. She continues to write and present pieces for Radio 4’s ‘From Our Own Correspondent’.
