Brian - Director
Brian is in overall charge of the design and set up of each and every challenge/expedition that Expedition Wise run and can be found leading many of them himself. He has vast experience in organising and leading Charity Challenges & Expeditions all over the world, and has been to an enviable list of incredible places. His portfolio includes multiple expeditions to Kenya, Tanzania, Morocco, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Norway, Finland, China, and Nepal to name a few! He has led many successful Charity Challenges including Everest Base Camp, Iceland Volcano Trek, Kilimanjaro on all routes, London to Amsterdam and London to Paris Cycle Challenges. He has recently successfully climbed Chhubohe, an unclimbed peak in Nepal, and Nar Phu Peak, another first ascent in Nepal and looks forward to leading more Unclimbed Peak Expeditions in the future.
Brian was the Expedition Leader for the Manchester United Foundation Kilimanjaro Trek that Bryan Robson & Kevin Moran took part in, as well as the Investec Ashes Cycle Challenge in 2013 and 2015 featuring cricketers Mike Gatting, Allan Lamb, Darren Gough and Tim Bresnam amongst other sporting celebrities such as the Olympic Diver, Leon Taylor. Brian has led both adult and youth expeditions with the focus being varied, from raising money for charity to personal development and from leadership and team work to pure achievement and enjoyment.
With his experience, knowledge and infectious laugh, he is a fantastic person to have leading a Charity Challenge or Expedition. Brian is also a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician and a Rescue Emergency Care Instructor.
