Last weekend we ran our first expedition leadership weekend in partnership with Explorers Connect. It was a great success with attendees coming with plans ranging from a new take on the three peaks challenge (an overseas version!) to getting into working in the expedition industry, to cycling from Land’s End of John O’Groats and all manner of other ideas and plans.
Dom headed the course covering everything from expedition soft skills, leadership styles, risk management and emergency planning. Belinda Kirk from Explorers Connect also added a valuable session giving her insight into media and fundraising and we were lucky to be joined in the evening by Ken Hames who added his own perspective of invaluable lessons learnt from his expedition career.
It was a great fun weekend and everyone left enthused and ready to take the next step to make their expedition plans a reality. Plans are already afoot to run more dates as this course was already oversubscribed, so if you are interested in getting your name down early get in touch or drop Belinda an email at Explorers Connect belinda
