Lisa and Simon Thomas

Lisa and Simon Thomas

Lisa and Simon Thomas were described by the American adventurer Allan Karl as “the King and Queen of Adventure Motorcycling”. Griff Wilson, Sr Director for Adidas described the husband and wife duo as ‘Inspirational!’

In 2003 Lisa and Simon Thomas headed out to explore the planet on two off-road motorcycles.

They spent the next 17-years independently exploring some of the harshest and most remote regions on earth. Their adventure has been fast-paced and often tough, but always extraordinary. Over the years, the duo has dined with Maasai warriors and business moguls, and there was that, ‘mistaken kidnapping of an African President’s Son’ situation, but that’s another story!

They survived a broken neck in the Amazon Jungle, a Chechen bombing in Moscow, and faced many untold challenges that would stop others in their tracks, but not this pair. This is a story with hearing!

Type Of Presenter


Simon and Lisa captured the audience’s attention straight away and delivered to a full house. They described their unique partnership as world travellers, setting goals, problem solving, constantly reviewing desired outcomes and resultant successes or failures. They worked with each other easily as presenters and switched between speaking roles while sharing an amazing series of images with our delagtes, that took the audience along on their ride, allowing the audience to relate to the content as it was delivered.

Having being involved with the organising of events for our South Australian Members for the past 5 years I can honestly say that I have never seen so many Members stay back after a presentation to gain some time to chat with the Speakers. Simon and Lisa were happy to spend their time with each of these Members answering their many questions.

I would happily recommend Simon and Lisa Thomas, aka 2 Ride the World, to any Company or Organisation looking to motivate and inspire their Staff with something a little different that encourages the audience to set and achieve their own life goals.

I wanted to reach out to thank you for your visit to Adidas Head Office. Our entire team was very excited to hear about your adventures and how your experience could apply to innovation and problem solving across our global platform. Your presentation was lively, funny, and informative and above all, inspiring’

Sr. Director,Future Footwear Team. ADIDAS

What Lisa and Simon offer is not some glitzy, overproduced, special effects documentary. Their story is real, raw and engaging. You “Ooo, Ahh and wow” at their multi-media presentation. With their energy, conviction and obvious passion for two-wheeled travel, Simon and Lisa inspired, educated and entertained us all. Their video draws you in and makes you feel like you’re part of the adventure. Their photography of the world is stunning and their story telling is spellbinding.

I can honestly say, we have never had a presentation at the dealership that has been this popular. Do your customers, your dealership and yourself a favor. Have Lisa and Simon share their continuing story with your customers, you won’t regret it.’
