To the Edge of the Alpine Valleys
5 days of creative thinking and strategising with 18 industry leaders, all while going on the journey of a lifetime through the UNESCO Dolomite Mountains. A huge thank you to our incredible partners Dolomites Mountains and Rosa Alpina.
Beyond The Beaches
The Australia Pursuit brought together a group of senior visionaries within the industry at a critical time for us all, in March 2020. It provided an incredible landscape to discuss and workshop the current landscape and provided invaluable learnings for everyone to move forward with in their businesses. It proved – as we all know – that we are #allinthistogether.
Into the Mountain Pass
Perfectly timed as the leaves started to turn, our group of industry leaders journeyed through the mighty peaks of Colorado. We cycled, rafted and hiked along the way, including the once in a lifetime hike from Aspen to Crested Butte. Along the way there were expert-led workshops as well as thought-provoking discussions from the Challengers.
Where the Stars Meet the Sky
The Portugal Pursuit took 18 Challengers deep into the untouched Alentejo region of Portugal where we slept under a dark sky reserve, hiked along Europe’s largest lake and cycled through ancient olive groves. Along the way there were countless discussions and two guru-led workshops topped off with a hot air balloon ride over the region.
New Zealand 2019
Land of the Long White Cloud
The first Pursuit of 2019 saw our most global mix of Challengers yet converge in New Zealand: hiking Ben Lomond, rafting grade 4 rapids, cycling, jet boating and camping under the stars. Dynamic discussions and mentor-led workshops took place along the way, with incredible backdrops and in bright sunshine, before the guitars came out to wrap up each day.
Costa Rica 2018
Jungle Out There
The final Pursuit of 2018 saw challengers joining forces to hike through puma-populated jungles, raft down 20km of grade 4 rapids, cycle, climb and swim through some of the most remote and magnificent parts of Costa Rica. Along the way, we had Discussions and Workshops in some of our most incredible locations to date on any Pursuit including a thermal hot spring and in the ocean while the sun set. Pura vida!
La Dolce Vita
The second Pursuit of 2018 saw our global group of challengers live La Dolce Vita, winding through the sun-baked Puglia countryside on foot, by bike and even vintage car. With days punctuated by burrata making, afternoon hikes and candlelit dinners in ancient caves, the discussions and workshops that followed were among our most productive (and provocative) to date.
Land of the Midnight Sun
The first Pursuit of 2018 took our most global group of challengers to date to the land of the midnight sun where they kayaked, cycled and ski toured their way through Norway, all the while pushing themselves and their businesses forward together.
Our next group of challengers journeyed into the vast terrain of America’s Wild West, floating off-grid down the Salmon River and swapping WiFi connection for personal connection.
Fire and Ice
The inaugural Pursuit took the first brave group of challengers to the land of fire and ice: Iceland, as they touched base off-road, hit the ground ski-dooing, took the dive into the blue sea thinking and got (their ice-axes) stuck into new ideas.
