We all have moments in our lives where something changes, where we have a profound shift in perspective, and for explorer Ness Knight that happened whilst solo adventuring. Ness has standup paddleboarded over 1000 miles, cycled across the USA solo, become the first female in history to swim the Thames River, and cycled across the desolate and unforgiving heat of the Namib Desert alone. Next year she will row 7000+ nautical miles solo, non-stop and unassisted across the vast Pacific Ocean. More people have stood on the moon than rowed this great ocean. But what is behind the mindset of an explorer? What motivates a solo explorer to step into the unknown again and again? Having pushed the limits of mind and body in some of the most remote corners of our planet, facing extreme conditions, difficult decisions and sobering realities, she gained an unusual insight into what makes us unique, as well as what connects each and every one of us. Ness’ talk takes a deep dive into the experiences and psyche of an extreme adventurer performing at the edge of what is deemed possible.

Ness knight is an Explorer as well as conservation and wildlife enthusiast who has completed a diverse collection of expeditions around the globe. The record breaking explorer has stand up paddleboarded 1000 miles, cycled across the USA solo, became the first female in history to swim the Thames River, ran 15 marathons in 15 days and cycled across Bolivia with no money. Last year she explored the Namib Desert solo, traversing through stunning, arid and inhospitable lands in the remotest Northern regions. Next she will be attempting to become the first female in history to row across the Pacific Ocean solo, non-stop and unassisted. Ness' greatest passion lies in exploration in some of the world’s most unusual and extreme locations. She is fascinated by wildlife, unique cultures and ways of life, and getting to understand how communities survive and thrive in extreme environments. Ness' great love is for storytelling and documentaries, taking people with her on journeys to explore the far reaches of our planet Earth.
