Gary King, BA (Hons), MSc
Gary is a Psychologist and qualified Outdoor Learning and Development Facilitator. He applies his experience, knowledge and understanding to challenge and support leaders in their development, as well as young people and adults in community development programmes. He has led many wilderness expeditions and successfully undertook a seven-day solo trek in the Pyrenees. Gary is passionate about developing better leaders who will positively influence organisations, communities and governments, and ultimately produce better societies. He is interested in the practical use of psychological leadership development models, as well as using the outdoors and wild places as a vehicle for delivery. Such an approach isn’t necessarily in the traditional ‘fear-invoking’ or ‘thrill-seeking’ team building style: his approach is experiential, contemplative and considered.

From time to time throughout the programme, Guest Facilitators will join Core Facilitators, who will be able to share their specialist knowledge, insights and expertise. These will be academics, instructors and leaders from CAT, storytellers, musicians, tai chi instructors, etc.
