Julie & Colin Angus

Do you want to create an event that will inspire people to achieve more, work more effectively as a team and generate a buzz that will stay long after your conference is over? The techniques Julie and Colin use to complete their world first expeditions including circling the world by human power and rowing across the Atlantic Ocean are the same strategies that propel corporations and organizations to become leaders in their fields.  Julie and Colin are engaging and entertaining speakers, and most importantly, they share their unique strategies for achieving seemingly impossible goals.

Julie and Colin were jointly given National Geographic’s 2007 Adventurer of the Year award.  Colin holds records for completing the first human-powered circumnavigation of Earth, the first descent of the world’s fifth longest river, the Yenisey, the fastest human-powered circumnavigation of Vancouver Island and many others.  Julie is the first woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean from mainland to mainland and has organized and led challenging expeditions around the world.  They are bestselling authors of six books and co-producers of four award winning documentaries.

Colin and Julie are regularly seen on television shows such as The Hour, Canada AM, CBC Sunday News and Daily Planet.  Their expeditions have been featured on the front pages of both Canada’s national newspapers, and in hundreds of print publications including Reader’s Digest, Men’s Journal, Outside magazine, BC Business, the Guardian and Chatelaine.
