Bex Band

My previous expeditions include hiking 1000km the length of Israel, crossing the Jordan desert and kick scooting the entire length of the USA. All my stories and advice I share on my blog, The Ordinary Adventurer, which receives over 15,000 monthly page views. I also regularly deliver talks at festivals and events around the world. Through my tales of adventure I inspire people to care more for the planet.

Seeing a real lack of women in the outdoor and adventure scene, I founded Love Her Wild. Now with almost 6,000, this adventure community provides a supportive space and regular adventure opportunities for women so they can realise their full potential.

Over the past years, I have been honoured to receive recognition for my work, including:

2nd place the Active People Blogger Awards 2017

Shortlisted for TGO Personality of the Year 2017

Key Note Speaker

I am on a mission to inspire others to find adventure in their lives. Why? Because adventure makes us realise our potential (in all areas of life) and reminds us to care for the planet.

In my talks, I share my journey from an unfit woman lacking confidence to someone who has hiked across deserts, kayaked across countries, led expeditions all over the world and broken world firsts. I applied what I learnt in adventure to my career and launched a successful business and now lead a community of over 5,700.

My adventure tales are full of heartbreak, fear and the impossible but my approachable and honest style keeps me relatable.

I can deliver talks on:
– Adventure: Realising your potential with adventure
– Conservation: Helping the planet through adventure
– Branding: Growing a community 

“Bex’s tales of worldly adventures her knowledge and spirit was truly inspirational. Bex had the students engaged and enthralled with her adventurous tales and passion, they couldn’t wait to ask her questions and loved her interactive style of presenting.”
