They aim to inspire a new generation of adventure philanthropists.

Steve, speaking at the launch event at Glazier’s Hall, London, in February 2015 also gave tips on how to prepare to take on the world as an adventure philanthropist and bring social change to communities visited.

Desert adventure and business success

A speech given at the Grosvenor Casino in Piccadilly, illustrating the practical business advantages of undertaking an extreme adventure.

Before: The planning, execution, training and other preparations for such an event mirror how a CEO operates and grows a business.

During: an exciting part of the event is going to new places and meeting new people. There is also a lot of time spent alone, in the vastness of the desert, planning for the future, thinking of new product lines and new ways of doing things.

Afterwards: the feeling of achievement and success is awesome, making one realise that truly, anything is possible.
