Braam Malherbe

International speaker | extreme adventurer | conservationist youth developer | author | MC

All these words could be used to describe Braam Malherbe, a man on a mission to save planet earth. If you meet Malherbe in person, however, you will discover that he is an ordinary man who believes in doing extra for the causes that you care about most. This is what makes a human extraordinary.

His adventures include running the entire length of the Great Wall of China, running the entire coastline of South Africa, doing a race against time to the South Pole in -45° Celsius temperatures, and most recently, in 2017, completing another world first: rowing unassisted for 92 days from Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro, all in the name of the DOT Challenge, a movement he invented that challenges everyone to ‘Do One Thing’.

Considered to be “one of the top three athletes to ever come out of South Africa” by Prof Tim Noakes, Malherbe started to do public speaking when he realised his own adventures and personal journey could help others move from a life of success to a life of significance.

Braam Malherbe will be speaking on the following topic:

Extreme Performance – Cape to Rio Unassisted Row

Under extreme pressure and difficult circumstances your options are either failure or peak performance. Braam shares the story of his third world-first achievement: rowing unassisted from Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro all in the name of the DOT Challenge. Tremendous challenges face him from start to finish including near collisions, sleep deprivation and dehydration. He will outline his challenges and explain how this adventure would not have been possible without the use of technology.

  • Dreaming big, planning well and minimising risk;
  • Overcome obstacles and developing resilience;
  • The power of interconnectivity spurred on by technology;
  • How technology gives us all the opportunity to make a difference; and
  • How technology has assisted in this heart stopping adventure
