Welcome to T3 Exped
T3 Exped is an exciting project which brings learning from the expedition world to your office, school or community.
T3 exists to share learning experiences from expeditions: of overcoming obstacles, both within and without onself; recovering from failure; finding the inner strength and motivation to keep going; planning well; training; and working as a team to achieve surprising things. We believe you will find T3 events both motivating and inspiring.
T3 events are delivered by a small team of front-line adventurers, who are pushing the boundaries of outdoor adventure and exploration in a way which is often deemed 'impossible', a statement which has been proved wrong many times! We take you on a journey to some extreme corners of the globe - the Artic, Patagonia, the Himalaya, Alaska and beyond...
We work with corporate / business groups from all sectors, and with young people through the T3 schools project. Our adventurers, experienced speakers and facilitators, work with you around the themes of tenacity, teamwork and technology.
What is T3?
One of the T3 team members, Karen Darke, was an active outdoor sports person, but broke her T3 vertebrae in a rock-climbing accident, and was paralysed from the chest down. Despite her disability, Karen has achieved some seemingly 'impossible' things in the outdoors, which she attributes to strong teamwork, personal tenacity and a focus on technology. Our events concentrate on these three themes:-
Tenacity: The importance of adopting a positive mindset, finding motivation and maintaining commitment to achieve your goal.
Teamwork: Recognising and playing to each others strengths alongside clear leadership and a good communication culture.
Technology: Finding or creating the necessary technology or equipment for success.
