I’m Bex Band…author, speaker & community leader with a love of all things adventure & conservation…

I wasn’t always this big adventurer, in fact, I had a very un-outdoorsy upbringing. I hated school – I didn’t fit in and struggled with undiagnosed dyslexia – and grew up massively lacking in confidence. But I’ve been hooked since I went on my first big adventure hiking 1000km the length of Israel. I’ve since kayaked the width of the UK against plastic pollution and kick-scooted (yep you read that right!) the length of the USA. Now a mum, I look for ways to adventure as a family (my third book will be a guide to Family Adventures – Bloomsbury, 2024).

Noticing a lack of women accessing the outdoors, I founded the non-profit Love Her Wild – now the UK’s largest women’s adventure community with over 35,000 members. I’ve organised expeditions worldwide, including the 2022 Women’s End2End relay where 700 women carried a baton for 74 days the length of the UK.

My love of adventure goes hand-in-hand with a passion for conservation, with a particular love of the oceans. This led me to study a MSc in Wildlife Conservation. When I’m not running the Love Her Wild community, I advocate for all things adventure and conservation by writing books, giving talks and keeping a blog – a blog that has had over 1.5million readers.

I’ve been named one of the UK’s 30 Most Inspirational Entrepreneurs and was titled ‘Legacy Maker’ on the San Miguel Alternative Rich List. I’ve won the Next Generation Award, was a finalist in the Women of the Future Awards and my debut book won the Shextreme Outdoor Book Award. I have also been interviewed by Clare Balding for Radio 4 Ramblings!



I will be doing a limited number of talks and events in 2023. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like me to speak or deliver a workshop.
