Entrepreneurial business executive and the 'tasman trespasser'.


Entrepreneurial business executive, top selling author and the only person to have successfully rowed solo from Australia to New Zealand, Shaun Quincey is an outstanding international presenter.

He's able to connect the lessons of extreme adventure with the daily challenges faced by organisations across the world. Shaun has succeeded in launching and growing businesses in the international market, as well as taking on one of the world's most dangerous oceans.

His epic solo Tasman voyage took 2 years of planning and 54 days of rowing in the world’s most treacherous stretches of water. Departing from Coffs Harbour, Australia, his journey included rowing into a whale, flipping end over end and spending 30 minutes trapped under his boat. He was blown backwards over 200km but eventually hit the northern tip of New Zealand's ninety mile beach. Shaun’s father, Colin is the only other person to have rowed the Tasman solo - in the other direction back in 1977. Shaun and his father still hold the world records.
