BNI Director Info
Guy Griffiths was born and brought up in East Africa. Guy speaks Swahili and has been making little sense ever since. Reputed to have been a Captain in the Scots Guards, and with the Sultanate of Oman, he also set up and ran an estate agency in the Principality of Andorra, dealing with international and local clients, before getting involved with BNI in the UK. Guy has set up over 25 chapters in three separate regions in the UK. Guy attributes his success in Andorra, and in the UK, to focusing on the few things that really make a difference.
About Oceanic Aspirations
In a few weeks time, on January 12th I, along with 11 colleagues, will be attempting to break the transatlantic rowing record which currently stands at 33 days. Guy will leave from The Canaries and row to Barbados. Guy is trying to raise £1,000,000 for the BNI-Misner foundation and Touch Trust in Wales. Touch Trust is a charity for those with complex needs and autism and is based in Wales. Guy has the support of people such as Ivan Misner and Richard Branson. They hope to complete the row in 30 days. The boat is one of the fastest ocean rowing boats ever built - Britannia III – a 12-man boat which crossed the Atlantic in 38 days earlier this year (skippered by Simon Chalk).
Why choose Oceanic Aspirations
From my earliest memories of the sea, my father remains the biggest influence - he taught me to love the sea, and my earliest images of the sea were with him - swimming, sailing, and then ... rowing! It is to him I credit my passion and love for the sea.
