ConnecTALKS: Live and Lead with SPIRIT | Lessons from the Ocean

Duration: 1 hour

Location: Global

Natalia Cohen has over 15 years' experience of living and working in over 70 countries. She has a broad range of professional experience within the travel industry however she is best known for being part of a team of women (the Coxless Crew) who set two world records and gained an international following rowing unsupported across the Pacific Ocean.

This was a journey of just under 9000 miles from San Francisco, USA to Cairns, Australia in a 29ft ocean rowing boat.

The expedition was not only a challenge of extreme conditions and perseverance but also a journey within to better understand the strength of the human spirit, the importance of being aligned with your values, developing mental resilience, the diversity within a team and enjoying the journey.

Natalia has a deep understanding of the power of transformational travel and a strong passion for people, psychology, adventure, movement and wellbeing.

Although she may have crossed her literal Pacific, we all have our own Pacific to cross.
