Dr Samantha McElligott
After completing a joint honours degree in Law and French from Keele University in 2000, Samantha decided to make a career move into the more applied environment of education within the outdoors. She has spent over 20 years working as an Instructor, Coach, Development Trainer, and Expedition Leader on both UK and overseas adventures. Concurrently, she studied Life Coaching and Performance Coaching, NLP and completed both a Postgraduate Diploma in Coaching and Mentoring (Wolverhampton University) and a Postgraduate Certificate of Higher Education (Bangor University). Samantha’s ensuing Ph.D research examined transformational leadership in the context of overseas expeditions, and the impact on participants’ self-esteem. The research was presented at International Sports Psychology Conferences, and won the student poster prize at the DSEP conference in Manchester (2013). Her research has been integrated into the Mountain Training Walking Awards, presented as the INSPIRE model.
Samantha is an outdoor enthusiast and is passionate about developing peoples’ potential through the medium of outdoor experiences. Now, she practices as a Mental Health First Aid Trainer and Leadership Consultant specialising in the development of transformational leadership and performance coaching behaviours. She has worked with ATG-A since 2016, helping to develop the ALeRT Training course and strengthen knowledge and confidence in developmental theory and techniques across the group.
