The Trust welcomes Mike Barber to the team as Inspiring Explorers™ Programme Manager. Mike is responsible for the development and implementation of the Trust’s Inspiring Explorers™ programme.
Mike has worked in various programming, operational and management roles in the adventure activities and conservation industries. He is experienced in creating, developing and delivering programmes for people of all ages and from all walks of life. Mike says, “My new role at the Trust really gets me excited about where we can take the Inspiring Explorers™ programme, for both our alumni network and those yet to take on an Inspiring Explorers Expedition™ of a lifetime!”
Personally, Mike thrives on his own expeditions and adventures. Most weekends summer or winter he can be found somewhere in the backcountry climbing, snowboarding, biking or tramping. If he’s not in the hills then he can be found enjoying the surf or other water sports. Mike has previously spent time surfing and racing as a sponsored paddleboarder as well as travelling the world packing in weird and wonderful experiences that he says make for some good chat.
