EXPEDITION LEADERSHIP Workshop. A 1 day workshop (10am - 4pm) designed for overseas expedition leaders but also relevant for Duke of Edinburgh Supervisors and those leading long-distance treks in the UK and Europe. The workshop gives individuals specific tools for managing and leading expedition teams through interactive sessions and scenario based examples.

This workshop is for those who lead both youth and adult expeditions.
The workshop will include:
- Front loading and setting up an expedition ethos.
- Understanding leadership styles and when to use them in an expedition context.
- Effective communication.
