Nothing can stop Samantha Gash armed with the philosophy, if you want something you’ve never had - you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.
An accomplished lawyer working for the largest international law firm in the world, Samantha traded in her heels for running shoes and went out to change the world through highly collaborative social impact campaigns. With true grit, unrelenting focus and the willingness to create the next best plan in the face of chaos and change, she has created lasting impact. She has raised $1.5 million dollars for charities such as World Vision, Save the Children and the Australian Red Cross.
A trailblazer in the endurance world, Samantha was the first woman and the youngest person at the time, to complete the Four Deserts Grand Slam - one of the world’s toughest endurance competitions that spans 1000kms across the hottest, coldest, driest and windiest deserts on earth.
With over 25,000kms under her feet and years of pushing her mental and physical boundaries - she now uses running as a vehicle for social change through advocacy; peer to peer fundraising and integrated digital campaigns (see social impact campaigns below). In March 2020, she launched the Sam Gash Podcast - a peak performing podcast that hosts adventurers, innovators, entrepreneurs, athletes and artists.
As a highly regarded international speaker - Samantha uses authentic storytelling and dramatic documentary footage to share her journey. She is an inspiring change leader and will guide your team through managing industry disruption and learning to become comfortable in the discomfort in an engaging and memorable way.
