Event description

Description

What is it? And is it for me?


On this walk, we are going to explore "Extreme Ownership", a mindset and set of associated leadership practices described in US Navy SEALs Jocko Willink's and Leif Babin's book of that name; and applied to a range of business leadership challenges. We will workshop what this could mean for you and the business you lead.


We will do this over a 12km loop around the Mendips - over hills, through wooded valleys - a landscape filled with cultural history, and offering fabulous views across Somerset and the Bristol Channel. We will stop off for lunch (at additional personal expense) at a fabulous country pub.

Fresh Air Business Walking is a membership and pay-per-walk programme for business leaders and their guests seeking fresh air, fresh perspectives, and fresh conversations.

It's an opportunity to relax and draw energy and inspiration from stunning natural environments; a powerful alternative to indoor meetings; a more creative and engaging form of networking; and an opportunity to share and resolve major work challenges.

Where is the start/finish point? Where can I park? What about toilets?

We will start the walk at 10:30 from outside the Burrington Inn, Burrington Combe, North Somerset, BS40 7AT. You can use the Inn car park (on the understanding the Inn will benefit from your custom), or the free car parks either side of this. There is a pubic toilet in the southern car park (in addition to the Burrington Inn).

We will be back by around 15:30.

Who is leading this event?

Dave Stewart, Managing Director of The Fresh Air Learning Company will lead the walk. In addition to being a highly experienced business leader and coach, he is also a qualified Mountain Leader. Read more about Dave Stewart.

  • Email: dave@freshairlearning.com

How fit do I need to be? How far are we walking?

  • The route is undulating with a couple of short inclines. Good paths throughout.

  • The total distance is 12kms with 300m of ascent.

  • We will be walking at a pace which allows people to talk comfortably, and we will be making regular stops.

  • If you are in any doubt about your ability to undertake this walk, consult your GP and the organisers.

What clothing & equipment will I need?

  • Walking boots or sturdy footwear with good grip, and ideally ankle support.

  • Waterproof over-trousers and water-proof jacket. Let us know if you need help with these.

  • A spare warm layer for stops.

  • Warm headgear and gloves.

  • Your own snacks and water (1.0 litres min. We can top up at the lunchtime pub. Take more if warm & sunny).

  • Personal medication as required.

  • Small rucksack with waterproof bags to keep contents dry.

What about bad weather?

The walk will therefore go ahead in all but the most extreme weather. The route may be modified to make the best of conditions. Your leaders are highly qualified and experienced outdoor leaders, and will ensure everyone has a safe walk.
