Morocco Overseas Experience

OtherJames Hipkiss

Farscape Development would like to invite senior business leaders to participate with us on a journey with a difference. From 25 April 2 May 2015 we are facilitating an Overseas Experience in Morocco for a group of 8 - 12 senior leaders. It is an opportunity for you to step away from the office and reflect on how you might do things a little differently in order to get more out of your people and your teams. It is also a chance to go on an exciting adventure!

This development journey will take place in Jebel Saghro, on the edge of the Sahara, trekking through beautiful ranges with stark peaks, deep gorges and remote Berber villages. This environment will provide the inspirational backdrop for the learning journey that you will be going on with us. This journey will enable you to explore your toughest challenges in the workplace and your aspirations for the future in a safe, confidential and inspirational environment. It is an opportunity to take time out from your business and take a deeper look at your leadership style and set yourself some new courageous goals. It will create the head-space to reflect on what it really is that you want to achieve as a leader and allow you to take a creative approach to achieving this. It will enhance your understanding of the importance of combining commercial awareness with self-awareness as a leader.

It will enable you to network, share ideas and problem solve with other senior leaders and business owners. Click on the link below to find out more about the journey and to have a look at the itinerary. Or if you have any questions, message me on here or call me on 0117 370 1800. Ruth Moody

Expedition companies in UK

Other, CommunityJames Hipkiss


I am a recent graduate in sport and leisure management and passionate about sports outdoors. I am looking to start a career in the travel industry, in an expedition company as a consultant, marketing, sales or a co-coordinator.

Can anyone provide a list of expeditions companies within the UK so I could contact them?

A well established, boat-based polar adventure travel company is seeking scientists, researchers and/or public speakers to join us on our voyages as special guests. These voyages have afforded many scientists and researchers the opportunity to access remote locations in the Arctic and Antarctic, allowing them to collect samples, make observations etc.

In return for passage aboard one of our expedition voyages, you will be expected to present two or three lectures, make yourself available to the passengers, and generally help the expedition staff wherever possible. If interested, please contact me for further details. Please include a link to your bio and a short description of the topics you could lecture on.
