South African-born, Neal Petersen is a world class professional solo racing yachtsman, global investor, award-winning author of Journey of a Hope Merchant and the subject of a PBS documentary.

While sharing his riveting life story, and philosophy, Neal’s personal messages and unique delivery will open the mind, with new hope and a determination to break down the barriers, real or perceived, that now exist and to take adversity head-on and demonstrate that with determination and hard work you can achieve your goals.
