Polly Letofsky

The only woman to walk around the world.

Learn the steps of transformative growth to tackle the LITTLE STEPS to your BIG FEAT


Motivational Speaker | Best Selling Author

Polly Letofsky left her home and headed west across 4 continents and over 14,000 miles - by foot - to become the first woman to walk around the world.

As an awareness campaign for breast cancer strangers welcomed her into their homes. But is was never an easy road; Polly struggled with earthquakes, muggings, languages, even religious riots. The ultimate challenge came in the middle of Polly’s journey when September 11 flung us all into a crossroads in world history.

Your audiences will walk away with a renewed commitment to achieve the seemingly unachievable, determined to move past the unexpected obstacles and embrace a new spirit towards their lives and work.
