Lesley Rochat became the voice for those who cannot speak, refused to accept complacency or mediocrity, and above all, she has challenged conformities.

As a woman who has succeeded in a diverse range of careers that span across the arts, the corporate market, the challenging non-profit sector, and now the adventure tourism industry, Lesley brings a unique combination and understanding of what it takes to succeed against all odds.

Her background as an actress and TV presenter makes her at home in front of groups of executives, professionals or students. She has addressed groups from as small as 20 people to crowds as large as 3000 people. Her clients include Apple, Microsoft, Airbnb, Mercedes Benz, Old Mutual, and many more.

Whether presenting live online or in the same room, Lesley challenges, inspires, and motivates audiences with an emotionally charged multimedia presentation, which includes her compelling video footage and award-winning photography that has documented her work with the oceans and sharks over many decades. She shares her intimate knowledge of one of the most misunderstood, yet simply awesome animals on our planet, and the lessons learnt on her journey to success.

Apart from her many accolades and international awards in 2013 out of thousands of nominees and a grueling judging process Lesley Rochat won The Sunday Times/Johnnie Walker Nation’s Greatest Challenger Award, for which she was honoured at the Top 100 Companies annual event.

Multi-Talent. One Desire.
Before dedicating her life to conservation she had a high profile career as a model, professional actress and TV presenter.

She later diversified into the corporate world and became a successful financial advisor. But the oceans called and led her to her true vocation.

In 2003 Lesley Rochat founded AfriOceans Conservation Alliance, a leading marine conservation organization, for which she is the CEO.

Lesley Rochat | Ocean Advocate Speaker

As a speaker she has addressed audiences in Indonesia, Malaysia, United States, Bahamas, United Kingdom, Mexico and South Africa.

As a photographic expedition leader, and through her thousands of hours spent underwater in often very challenging conditions, witnessing some of the most spectacular events in Nature, she has come to know that everything we want to learn, we can learn from Nature. She has one burning desire: to help conserve our natural environment.

Brave. Respected.
Lesley goes to extremes: She trains mentally and physically in preparation for what others would never dare to do. She puts herself in unimaginable situations amongst the oceans top predators, sharks, to prove her point.

She’s brave: Armed only with her camera she captures some of the most disturbing footage to raise awareness about critical marine issues.

Lesley Rochat is the voice of our Oceans: on prime time TV News she  regularly challenges policies and practices that threaten our oceans resources.

She’s respected: Trevor Manuel invited Lesley to contribute toward the Global Ocean Commission process.

Her award winning work as an extreme conservationist, combined with her diverse careers that span across the arts, the corporate market, and now the challenging nonprofit sector, allows her a unique understanding of what it takes to succeed against all odds.

Lesley challenges, inspires, and motivates audiences with an emotionally charged multimedia presentation, which includes her compelling video footage and world-class photography that has documented her work with the oceans and sharks over more than a decade.

Lesley Rochat – Shark Warrior weaves her radical choices to put herself in potentially dangerous situations underwater into an awe-inspiring presentation.

Each of her talks focuses on a specific key topic linked to her intimate knowledge of one of the most misunderstood, yet simply awesome animals on our planet, and her journey to success, one fraught with many difficulties, but conquered with determination, passion and inner conviction.
