His story is for any audience seeking powerful inspiration, great entertainment and positive motivation in their careers and/or life

Ryan is a great story teller with seriously impressive achievements in open water and ice swimming. - Lewis Pugh, Author and Ocean Advocate

I am Ryan Stramrood: South African, Small Business Owner, Family Man and Average Joe.

However my hobby is Ultra Extreme Open Water and Ice swimming, and for deeply personal reasons, I have undertaken some of the world’s most extreme challenges. Pushing my limits and human boundaries in our planet’s most inhospitable places.

Following painful, pioneering training techniques and using what limited resources I can find to put basic safety procedures in place, I challenge myself by pushing personal limits for swimming in ice water, and often set new benchmarks for human endurance.

No wetsuits or protection from the cold water – Speedo’s only. My adventures, world first achievements and the often death-defying circumstances, make for brilliant tales of human spirit and victory.

Inspirational Speaking

I take my audiences on a journey with me. Through story telling and strong visuals, I illustrate just how limited and governed we all are, in every aspect of our lives, by believing in our own limitations.

How we under achieve in our comfort zones and how each and everyone of us can push past impossible.

His story is so inspiring that I have been thinking about it all day. I feel honoured to have been in the audience listening to him today. - Candice Cassel, Business Development at EnterpriseCloud

He had the audience glued to his talk, and his video got a standing ovation. Most of the audience, including myself, had a big lump in our throats. - Joe Hannan, Talent Manager
