There’s a lot to be said about teamwork. Working towards a common goal with a sense of synergy and an enthusiastic attitude produces mutually reciprocal feelings of satisfaction amongst any team. That is a powerful tool that we have learnt to master at Inspired Adventures. In the last 12 months, our team has doubled and we have added two focused Fundraising Coordinators to provide specialised skills and knowledge.
Our dynamic team is determined to give as many people as possible their own incredible adventures whilst raising millions for Australian charities and supporting communities in need around the world. We work in a team in the office and when we are ‘on tour’ working as Social Leaders on our Adventures. However we don’t just ‘come along for the ride’; often we choose to fundraise for a charity so that we can better understand the challenges of fundraising in order to help you meet your goals. We go above and beyond to put our money where our mouths are so that we can put more money in the hands of our charity partners.
Creative, passionate, committed and light-hearted, come and meet our team!
Justine: Managing Director Justine believes in living life to the full, experiencing the world and encouraging others to make a difference to people’s lives. Her belief in the power of volunteering, community work and supporting others in any form is the cornerstone of her business philosophy. A challenging ascent of Mt. Kilimanjaro and a chance meeting with a Tibetan monk living in exile was all the impetus Justine needed to create Inspired Adventures. Follow Justine at Justine’s Corner.
Belinda: Belinda has been with Inspired since 2008 and is now our Head of Client Services. She has travelled to some of the world’s most exciting destinations including Central and South America, and has lived and breathed South East Asia as a tour guide. When she’s not organising her next trip away you’ll find Belinda swimming her little heart out at the pool or sweating it out in a hot yoga room! See Belinda in action during a recent visit to charity partner.
Kyle: Kyle comes to Inspired Adventures having lived in China, Belgium, and England while travelling to more than 70 countries on 6 continents. There is no place he doesn’t want to go, and very few he doesn’t want to go back to! Kyle is our Business Development Manager and loves to go ‘on tour’. Kyle lives and breathes adventure and ‘Team Work’ is his middle name. See Kyle in action.
Nadia: Account Manager Nadia loves a challenge. Having spent the last five years travelling around the world she has now settled permanently in Australia and is keen to continue her exploration of the world from ‘down under’. Her travel motto is: ‘leave only footprints and take only memories’. After climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, Nadia recently ran the New York Marathon while fundraising for a charity partner.
Helen: Account Manager Helen comes to Inspired Adventures with a truly inspired background: years of working in the travel industry followed by years of working in the not-for-profit sector. Working at Inspired Adventures combines Helen’s passions of helping people to achieve personal goals, supporting not-for-profits, and travel. A true explorer, Helen enjoys the outdoors, driving, camping, bushwalking, and spending time with her beloved dog, Xas.
Hannah: Account Manager Hannah fell in love with Cambodia when she volunteered to teach young kids in a rural village. After six months, Hannah’s backpack needed a rest so she paused for a breather in Sydney. She stumbled upon Inspired Adventures and the rest is history. When she’s not at work, Hannah enjoys keeping active, exploring the coastline and playing her guitar.
Kristen: Fundraising Coordinator Kristen joined the Inspired Adventures team in 2011 after participating in an Inspired Adventure in 2009. Kristen cycled through Cambodia and raised funds to build a school. A keen explorer, Kristen has travelled to some of the world’s most remote locations and has even worked as a mountain bike instructor. She has already planned the next 10 years of adventures based on her love of scuba diving, hiking and animals.
