Press Release Summary: The Right Address announces a new speaker.

Press Release Body: Congratulations to Debra Veal following her successful crossing
of the Southern Ocean this winter. Arguably best known for rowing solo across the
Atlantic (yes, the one who continued alone when her oarsman husband dropped out)
Debra endured freezing temperatures during her 6 week voyage, arriving in Wellington
NZ mid-January. Debra told The Right Address, "The Southern Ocean is the 'Big Daddy'
of all oceans in sailing terms and rounding Cape Horn was fantastic. But what made
it a truly unique voyage was sailing with a crew of novices drawn from all walks of
life, including a CEO, nurse, banker, PA and IT consultant. It really was a unique
study into leadership and teamwork in the most testing of conditions."

Adventurer, business woman, TV presenter and author, Debra is also one of the most
popular female motivational and after dinner speakers on the circuit due to the high
level of repeat bookings and referrals she receives. She is not a motivational
speaker reliant on buzz words, hype and jargon. Her main themes are how to stay
motivated, being adaptable to change, overcoming obstacles, how to improve your
team-work and how to choose the right attitude, however impossible the end goal may

You can also see Debra on BBC1 from the second week in February, fronting a new
series for the BBC called 'Builders, Sweat and Tears'.
