Chief Belief Officer
The Figure 8 Voyage, a solo, non-stop, passage of some 35,000 miles, will be the first small boat circumnavigation of both The North and South American continents and Antarctica in one season.
The Figure 8 Voyage connects two historic sailing routes, one of which has only recently opened to small boats.
The Clipper Route around the bottom of the world has been accessible to sailing craft with stout hearts for ages, but the frozen Northwest Passage is a different story. Only in 2007 did the Arctic ice pack recede enough to allow transit by a small boat.
If you're interested in hearing the Captain of The Figure 8 Voyage speak about both his previous adventures and his upcoming adventures contact Joanna!

Do any of the following statements resonate with you?
I want to get to the next level. How do I get there?
I have an idea. How do I let people know about it?
I've been told to "follow my passion". I have no idea what that is.

INEFFICIENCY MAKES MY BONES HURT...
Does it feel like the expectations wheel is spinning faster? Leaders are asked each day to innovate, evolve and change their organizations and processes to keep up with the ever changing times.Yet just “getting the train into the station” seems like a full time job.
Bringing technology, data and organizational empathy together to create solutions to allow for growth and scale.
I'M A MILLENNIAL ADVOCATE...
For the first time ever we have three generations in the workplace and they're not all playing well together and no one seems happy about it. I work with Millenials and leaders who are struggling to communicate and becoming frustrated in the process.
I improve generational communication and misunderstandings in the workplace between Boomers, GenX and GenY.
Take a walk in their shoes, and it starts to make sense.
