In addition to building his businesses and developing his career, Neil has organised and led expeditions all over the world. He has a passion for the challenge of inspiring, organising, fundraising and leading teams on adventurous expeditions whilst raising funds for charity. Neil spends much of his time encouraging disaffected and disadvantaged inner-city youth realise their potential. Neil has scaled at least twelve previously unclimbed peaks and has completed the seven Summits (the highest mountain on each of the seven continents: reaching the summit of Mt. Everest with a young Bear Grylls in 1998). He has led expeditions in some of the most hostile environments on earth. In 1996, Neil was caught at 26,000ft on Everest during the infamous storm that killed eight people and injured many more from frostbite. Neil draws on these experiences and is able to deliver powerful messages on leadership and teamwork.
