Dee Caffari (MBE) Presentation to AltoPartners
Dee Caffari has sailed around the world six times. She is the first woman to have sailed single-handed and non-stop around the world in both directions and the only woman to have sailed non-stop around the world a total of three times. 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.
On Friday 28 June, Dee Caffari spoke to the delegates of the AltoPartners 13th Annual Global Conference about her experiences as a leader who leads diverse teams through challenging experiences. Dee equated her experiences at sea with diverse teams to those that are happening across offices and boardrooms globally. Additionally, her inspirational message about leadership was anchored in a strong message about environmental impact and sustainability, with a direct call to action for people to stop purchasing single-use plastics.
