Ellen MacArthur          

Founder, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, United Kingdom

Dame Ellen MacArthur first hit the headlines in 2001 when she single-handedly raced non-stop around the world in the Vendee Globe when only 24 years old. In February 2005 she set a new world record aboard her 75ft trimaran of 71 days, 14 hours, 18 minutes and 33 seconds.

She is a founder of the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, set up in 2003, a charity which takes young people aged between 8-13 sailing to help them regain their confidence on their way to recovery from cancer, leukaemia and other serious injuries.

Ellen founded the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in 2009 following three years of research into ways of communicating sustainability and having spent time working with local and national government and in industry on both BT and E.ON’s Corporate Social Responsibility boards.
