Brad Van Liew

Why book Brad Van Liew?

More people have traveled in space than have raced by sail around the world solo. Brad Van Liew is now the only American to ever complete three solo races around the globe, racking up hundreds of thousands of miles on the precious 70 percent of the planet covered in water. Van Liew is also the only person in history to sweep all legs of two solo races around the planet. He competes in – and has won – the world’s toughest single-handed around the world races. Each event requires courage, grit and relentless determination as Van Liew weathers solitude, sleep deprivation, sparse living conditions, hurricane-force winds and monstrous waves.

Brad Van Liew

More people have traveled in space than have raced by sail around the world solo. Only 15 Americans have done so. Brad Van Liew is one of them. He is now the only American to ever complete three solo races around the globe, racking up hundreds of thousands of miles on the precious 70 percent of the planet covered in water.

Van Liew is also the only person in history to sweep all legs of two solo races around the planet. He competes in – and has won – the world’s toughest single-handed around the world races. Each event requires courage, grit and relentless determination as Van Liew weathers solitude, sleep deprivation, sparse living conditions, hurricane-force winds and monstrous waves. Between escapades, he fascinates audiences with his true adventures, demonstrating how the human spirit triumphs over the most daunting threats of nature and showing how everyone can benefit from and relate to his extreme experiences.

Brad is currently campaigning to break four additional sailing records including a 24 hour speed record with a team sponsored by Maserati.

Below are a couple of testimonials from previous engagements:

“There are few individuals that have the charisma, experience, and drive to impact a large community. Brad Van Liew came to South Carolina after achieving worldwide recognition as an adventure athlete…Brad is a true winner and friend. His business acumen complimented by his entertaining personality makes him a prime target for any company looking for a credible spokesperson.”

- U.S. Congressman Henry Brown

“His exposure on NBC, CBS, USA Today, Textile World, Sailing World, Outside, and American Way positioned our brand globally in a wholesome and environmentally friendly way. Brad’s expertise in so many areas and stories of the Southern Ocean voyage were remarkable. He wove the core business strengths of Honeywell and our products into every outing and speech.”

- Rich Capuano, Honeywell International

Brad has presented for organizations as diverse as Sun Microsystems, Tommy Hilfiger, Wells Fargo (23 on the Fortune 100 list), Honeywell (also a Fortune 100 corporation), American Heart Association, Young Presidents Organization, various schools, private clubs and many others.
