Special Keynote

There Are No Barriers – Only Solutions

Neal Petersen

Award-winning author and extreme adventurer, Neal Petersen, completed two amazing journeys in his life. One was a single-handed, nine-month-long yacht race that took him 27,000 miles around the world in a boat he designed and built himself. The one before it was an even more arduous and eventful trip just to make it to the starting line — overcoming poverty, a childhood disability, and racial prejudice in apartheid-era South Africa.
