Mike Horn is globally acknowledged as the world’s greatest
modern day explorer. From swimming the Amazon River solo and unsupported to an
unmotorized circumnavigation of the globe at the equator, Mike’s list of
accomplishments as a solo explorer is unparalleled. For 25 years, Mike Horn has
inspired and educated the world by pushing the limits of human ability through
a series of ground breaking expeditions, always naturally powered and often
During his “Arktos” expedition, he walked the Arctic Circle
solo and was already dreaming of his next expedition. He built a “4×4 of the
sea” in his mind over the two plus years of walking on the ice in minus
60-degree weather. ”Pangaea” was born and in 2008 Mike embarked on a four
expedition that served as a powerful platform from which young adults
experienced and explored the natural world. Over 200,000 miles and multiple
circumnavigations were well documented as this environmental initiative to
educate a global network of youth. Now he has several new projects on the
horizon. And they are bigger and more inspiring than ever.
‘If you are
afraid of losing, you can never win’, is the philosophy with which Mike
Horn has lived his life and conquered the impossible.
When Speaking Minds was founded in 2007 in New Zealand, little did we envisage that this would grow into an international brand with offices in India and London in less than a decade. We set up the business to share what we had learnt, from the privileges we have had in our jobs – of access to knowledge.
Bringing India to the rest of the world was our driving force.
The dna of our business is genuinely about sharing knowledge with the
world, from thought leaders and experts who are notable achievers in
their field. Raga D'silva quit her highly successful corporate career in
New Zealand in 2007, to set up a dream business of connecting
knowledge, insights, motivation from exceptional talent with the
corporate world, globally.
