Many thanks for being part of our away day, you truly have given us focus, different perspectives to consider and above all something for us all to take away and recall in future challenges we may face. 

Chris Noakes


I have never attended such a thought provoking, positive and impactful session.

I am very inspired by your talk and determined to implement some of the great suggestions you gave to us.

The feedback on your session has been simply fantastic! I've been receiving compliments on your behalf since the session ended without a pause :) 

Thank you so much for accepting our invitation and joining us once again, it was one of the best highlights of our week.

"Amid a programme of speakers that included some of Britain's best known and most accomplished adventurers, Natalia's talk stood out. Numerous people at the festival and afterwards have told me how much they enjoyed it. Of course she has a great story to tell about an amazing journey across the Pacific, but she tells it with both an emotional honesty and a sense of humour that make it disarming, moving and memorable."


Tom Robbins

Travel Editor, Financial Times

“A fantastic talk, which Natalia pitched perfectly for pupils & adults alike. The best visiting speaker’s talk I have heard in over 15 years of Speech Days at St Neot’s prep. School”

David Sanger, Vice Chair of Governors, St Neot’s Prep school.

Natalia is a gifted presenter and had our room captivated for nearly an hour. While the story is unbelievably inspiring, the thing we liked the most are the leadership and team building themes that she weaves throughout the presentation. I learned more about effectively managing a team in her one-hour presentation than I did in my 4 years of business school."

“Natalia shared insights that are so incredibly resonant with where  the world is today – perseverance in the face of extreme conditions,  dealing positively with change and protracted uncertainty, and the  sustaining power of shared values. “  

Alan Jope, CEO, Unilever

Your inspiring story and insights during the oceanic journey and your team challenges in extreme conditions, was the perfect puzzle piece for us of building our team strength and cohesiveness, which was one of our workshop goals. Once again, a big thank you from all of us.

Natalia tells her story, authentically, in the most engaging way, showing humour and a connection with her audience. Her messages are clear and simple, leaving the audience with golden nuggets to take away and help them create their journey. Thank you Natalia for sharing your journey and helping us to create our own.

Thank you for your inspirational talk about your journey. Everyone single person in that room was touched in some way by your story and the feedback was simply outstanding. I really hope we get to work with you again in the future.

"Natalia spoke at our 84th annual dinner. Entertaining, insightful and highly inspiring. Many interesting takeaways in terms of mindsets to help deal with difficult challenges, teams that work, and living life to the full. A professional speaker who I would highly recommend - you've got to hear her story!"


Rowena Birch, President, Manchester University XXI Club

From start to finish my experience of working with Natalia has been fantastic. Natalia was completely engaged from the outset and took the time to fully understand the focus and content of the day to ensure her talk worked for our audience. Natalia’s keynote on the day was exactly what we were hoping for, she used her own incredible story to really inspire the leaders in the room and managed to seamlessly link her insights directly to their own leadership journeys and challenges they are about to embark on. The arc of the keynote matched the brief completely and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Natalia again for future events and would be confident in her skills to deliver to a range of audiences fitting to a variety of themes.
