Kevin Biggar



Kevin Biggar was overweight, out of work and watching TV when he saw a clip on the news about one of the world’s toughest endurance events - the 5000km trans-Atlantic rowing race.

Kevin decided to take part. An unusual choice for anyone, but particularly for someone who didn’t know how to row. Yet two years later, in a desperate and thrilling race, he not only won he also set a new world record. 

Next he teamed up with his rowing partner again for another expedition – to Antarctica. After 52 days of battling temperatures as cold as -40 degrees, frostbite, crevasses, whiteouts and gear failure, they became the first kiwis to reach the South Pole unsupported.

In his interactive and entertaining workshop Kevin shares the techniques he learned to get himself off the sofa and take on two of the world’s toughest endurance feats. 

If you’re facing your own tough challenge, you’ll be fascinated as Kevin relates his formula for transformation illustrated with hilarious stories and examples from his adventures. 

Kevin has worked in strategy roles for The Boston Consulting Group, Telecom NZ, and as the CEO of a software start-up. Kevin was also a co-host of the TVNZ series ‘First Crossings’ and ‘Intrepid NZ’.
