Dr Simon Crisp describes his OBA Standard Course in 1980 (aged 17), as the single most formative experience of his life. Working as an OBA instructor provided the foundation to his career in psychology in wilderness adventure therapy and hospital mental health settings.

Chair AOBDF
From the vantage of his advisory firm, GoodWolf Partners, Simon helps clients such as family and corporate Foundations and NFPs to co-design strategy and develop innovative 'for purpose' models of service and capital towards social value. Simon has been involved with Outward Bound in both Zimbabwe and Australia, and he believes there has never been a more important and exciting time to reimagine the possibilities to make a difference, to leave the world a better place, to leave a legacy
Director AOBDF
Jon Bradshaw comes to OBA with over 25 years of global sales, marketing, strategy and organisational development experience gained with the Mars Group, Diageo PLC, Virgin Group, Lion Pty and D roga S. Nowadays he runs a successful marketing and strategy consultancy, Brand Traction. With an alarming lack of grace and skill he has spent his life outside work mountaineering, kayaking, diving, climbing and snowboarding his way around the world's adventure capitals . Over 40 years of experience in the field has given Jon an unshakeable belief that time spent being challenged in the outdoors should be an integral part of everyone's personal growth journey.
