Richard Hudson has spoken to a variety of audiences in North America, Europe, and Africa. His core messages of self-reliance, simple risk analysis and being confident with unknowns have inspired audiences to live their dreams.
After a successful career in technology, interspersed with sailing adventures, Richard started seeing the impact on others that sharing his experiences was causing. He began speaking to audiences large and small as a way of building community in the places he visited, and moved into inspiring people wherever he was to live their dreams.
*You Have Your Dream, now How to Live it?
*Quit Your Job And Sail The World
*Fearless-looking People Aren’t Fearless
As a child, I had severe asthma, which took me to the hospital frequently and mostly confined me indoors. I read a lot. I dreamed of travel and adventure, especially, to far-away, difficult places like the far north and south. These dreams seemed far away–I didn’t travel, I didn’t go on adventures, I stayed inside, only wishing.
When I was a teenager, asthma medicines greatly improved and, suddenly, I could live a normal life! I’ve been fully living my dreams of travel & adventure, or working towards them, ever since.
Among other things, I’ve lived in five countries and sailed my boats from the Arctic to the Tropics to Antarctica. I enjoy sharing these experiences with the people that I meet and I see how many people dream of travel & adventure but get stuck in their lives and don’t go. These are the people I want to inspire—to encourage in taking the first step away from the ordinary to jump in with both feet to live their dreams.
