Charles, Managing Director, UK

Charles fell in love with adventure travel and challenge events 8 years ago when he spent 2 months exploring the Amazon Rainforest of south Guyana. Ever since he’s sought out new challenges and bumped into all the other senior partners along the way! After a BA in International Development and an MA in Globalization, Ethnicity and Culture from the University Of Sussex, Charles was determined to bring the partners together and allow others to experience once in a lifetime journeys, whilst raising huge sums of money for fantastic charities doing amazing work.
