Kiko Matthews

Kiko Matthews is an extraordinary woman.

In 2009, she survived a rare and life-threatening condition (and again in Aug ’17). In March 2018 she became the fastest female to row the Atlantic, solo and unsupported.

She has dedicated the row to thank King’s College Hospital London, for saving her life (twice!) by raising £100K for their new Critical Care Unit. 

Explore What Matters is supporting Kiko in her mission to raise money for Kings, but also to share her inspiring story of survival and the inner strength, resilience and determination that is takes to spend 50+ days at sea alone - with no prior rowing or ocean experience.

We are working with Kiko to inspire people from all walks of life to consider just what you can achieve when you have a clear purpose combined with an inner motivation.

If you would like Kiko to come and inspire you and your organisation, get in touch with us or contact her directly.

Kiko, if you’re reading this right now it’s dark & you’re a speck in a vast ocean. That’s the way you wanted it, you’re inspiring people to fight adversity whilst raising money. Advice: 1. Don’t row another ocean. 2. Enjoy the once in a lifetime solitude. You’re amazing!
