A bit about Lizzie

Paddle boarder and campaigner Lizzie Carr MBE, will share the remarkable adventure that saw her complete three world firsts on a paddle board in just three years.

Lizzie talks candidly about her unexpected cancer diagnosis in her 20s and how this led her to SUP. She talks about her motivations, fears and, importantly, the learnings along the way. 

On her paddles, Lizzie has covered the length and breadth of England from her paddleboard and in 2018 released her debut book, Paddling Britain, sharing 50 of her favourite locations. In this talk she will reveal her ultimate paddle spots - coastal and inland - and enlighten us about her non-profit, Planet Patrol, that invites the public to take action to protect our waterways through citizen science.
