LBS Alumni & Leadership Programmes Career Centre: Leadership Lessons from the High Seas

About this Event

The LBS Alumni & LP Career Centre would like to invite you to our next speaker series talk:

Leadership Lessons from the High Seas with Volvo round the world yacht race skipper Dee Caffari (MBE)

*Please note this is a student ticket. If you are an alumnus, please visit here.

World-record setting yachtswoman Dee Caffari has sailed around the world six times. Dee is the first woman to sail single-handed and non-stop around the world in both directions and the only woman to sail non-stop around the world three times.

Dee’s talk will focusing on leadership through adversity, talking about building her experiences building and leading her Volvo Round The World race teams, building and engaging teams with a purpose and mission, and leading in tough circumstances on the open seas!

In 2006 Dee became the first woman to sail solo, non-stop, around the world against the prevailing winds and currents and was awarded an MBE in recognition of her achievement. Dee recently led ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic’ – the first mixed gender youth team to compete in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017/18; with a strong sustainability message. Off the water, the issue of single use plastic in our oceans gained huge momentum and has inspired many people to take action in their day to day lives. Dee will continue to highlight the vital importance of reducing our dependence on plastics.

Outside of sailing, Dee continues to showcase her talents in the media as a presenter and producer. Since 2015, Dee has been a presenter and producer for the online Global Women’s Sports Network WiSP Sports helping to support and promote female athletes and sport. She also spends time supporting her chosen charities.
