|Simon & Lisa Thomas are modern day explorers and considered the world's foremost adventure motorcyclists, who have inspired people within some of the world's top performing companies, to create new opportunities, adapt for change and communicate and perform at a higher level. |
Via their remarkable story the Thomas's reveal the mindset, skills, tools and techniques that they employ to not only survive, but flourish, in many of the worlds most politically explosive and dangerous regions.
Their proven methodologies have enabled them to explore the globe for over a decade, traverse the length of six contients, forge a worlds 'first route' through the Amazon jungle and connect with cultures in almost 100 countries.
At the end of the day it's about inspiring delegates to strive toward greater success, and importatnly giving them the tools to find that success, no matter what the arena.
Simon & Lisa have now shared their experience and insights with over 100-live audience around the world and have made over 40 national and local TV appearances on five continents. That could be at your next event?
|Imagine yourself stranded in the Amazon Jungle. You have two cracked cervical vertebrae, (a broken neck). Your left side is paralyzed and you’re blind in your left eye. Your motorcycle needs repair and your only companion, your wife has come down with malaria. Oh, and it’s the rainy season, so the only way out means navigating a life-sucking mud track, nearly a foot deep. The closest civilization is hundreds of miles away, and help is not on the way! |
Simon and Lisa Thomas don’t have to imagine it. They lived it. They survived it.
They made their necessary repairs, and spent the next three weeks riding, pushing, and picking their motorbikes up, over and over, until finally, mercifully, they reached help. Upon reaching hospital they were treated for a host of medical concerns that left medical staff in disbelief that they had not only survived but still wanted to continue.
Following emergency cervical surgery and a spell of hospitalization they once again jumped aboard their motorcycles and gladly continued to push the boundaries of what many describe as impossible.
Considered by many as the world’s foremost Adventure Motorcyclists, adversity is nothing new to this pair who confess to thriving on finding new challenges.
Prior to the start of their 14-year global motorcycling odyssey, Simon Thomas was the owner and Vice President a telecoms company and Lisa led the IT team at a major UK utilities company. With a host of business successes and having broken multiple world motorcycling records, they passionately share their thoughts on taking personal responsibility, achieving life goals and transforming thought into action.
Unlike many other public speakers, they are also candid about their failures and how this aspect is a vital part of the learning cycle. Both Simon & Lisa share countless real-world examples of how their positive attitudes, techniques and value framework were crucial to overcoming adversity.
The pair were filmed as a part of a BBC mini documentary as they explored South America and have made over 40 national and local TV appearance on 5 continents.
Over the years thier status has been recognised and this intrepid pair are now international Brand Ambassadors for a number of global industry giants, such as;
In 2011 they were invited to join the Committee of Advisers for the Ted Simon Foundation. Their photographic work was recognized in the same year, when Nikon announced it was to back them as the exclusive photographic partner of the 2RTW project.
They are currently still engaged in their record-breaking journey around the world on two BMW motorcycles.
|Simon and Lisa captured the audience’s attention straight away and delivered to a full house. They described their unique partnership as world travellers, setting goals, problem solving, constantly reviewing desired outcomes and resultant successes or failures. They worked with each other easily as presenters and switched between speaking roles while sharing an amazing series of images with our delagtes, that took the audience along on their ride, allowing the audience to relate to the content as it was delivered. |
Having being involved with the organising of events for our South Australian Members for the past 5 years I can honestly say that I have never seen so many Members stay back after a presentation to gain some time to chat with the Speakers. Simon and Lisa were happy to spend their time with each of these Members answering their many questions.
I would happily recommend Simon and Lisa Thomas, aka 2 Ride the World, to any Company or Organisation looking to motivate and inspire their Staff with something a little different that encourages the audience to set and achieve their own life goals.

|What Lisa and Simon offer is not some glitzy, overproduced, special effects documentary. Their story is real, raw and engaging. You “Ooo, Ahh and wow” at their multi-media presentation. With their energy, conviction and obvious passion for two-wheeled travel, Simon and Lisa inspired, educated and entertained us all. Their video draws you in and makes you feel like you’re part of the adventure. Their photography of the world is stunning and their story telling is spellbinding. |
I can honestly say, we have never had a presentation at the dealership that has been this popular. Do your customers, your dealership and yourself a favor. Have Lisa and Simon share their continuing story with your customers, you won’t regret it.’
