Adam Tuffnell is a round-the-world yachtsman who has circumnavigated the globe ‘the wrong-way’ against prevailing winds and tides.
Throughout his 20-year sailing career, Adam Tuffnell has sailed in some of the most hostile environments on the planet, ranging from the freezing wilderness of the Southern Ocean through to the debilitating humidity of the tropics. He is one of a select group of sailors who have circumnavigated the world against prevailing winds and currents, a feat which until recently was considered impossible. He has faced hurricanes, collisions, flooding and the emergency medical evacuation of a crew mate.
Adam has also built a successful sailing school and trained future Round-the-World racing crews from zero-experience to a state of ocean-going readiness. His energy and passion for sailing was formed as a child in small dinghies and ‘globalised’ through racing the BT Global Challenge in 2000.
As a graduate in Psychology and Philosophy and an accomplished sailor, Motivational Speaker Adam has unique insight into the practical applications of effective leadership and team development within the challenging environments of open-water and the corporate office.
