I am interested in collaboration.
Collaboration can manifest in various ways and I’m open to any approach individuals, mental health charities, businesses and equipment suppliers wish to make regarding offering some involvement in my undertaking.
Collaboration is a mutual process and any support I receive will be gratefully acknowledged through recognition and advertising on my kayak, through my social media profiles, on this website, in subsequent presentations and any media productions.
I am able to supply a more detailed outline of my plans for this undertaking, safety assessment and references on request.
Please use the form below to make contact with me.
For businesses and equipment suppliers:
Since this will be a demanding sea kayaking expedition over a considerable length of time, the equipment and clothing I will be using will be tested to their extreme.
Sponsorship of kayaking and camping equipment, clothing and useful products in return for advertising and promotion
Equipment or clothing for testing and review
Much needed electronic equipment and cameras in return for advertising and promotion
Financial donations to cover costs in return for advertising and promotion
For Mental Health services and groups:
I have a professional background in mental health support as well as my personal experience of living with depression and psychiatric care. My insights and willingness to be open about my experience offer opportunities for presentations and facilitated discussions.
Meetings with user groups at any of my planned stops along my route
If possible, presentations to groups about my mental health story and my adventurous life - what I positively gain from this
Meeting individuals who would like to chat to me - simply enjoying a blether
For Sea Kayakers:
I have a huge amount of expeditionary sea kayaking experience as a solo paddler and as a professional guide. I am willing to share my wisdom and knowledge for the benefit of aspirant and experienced sea paddlers alike.
Meeting me on the way and paddling with me
Meeting me at my overnight stops for a chat and share stories
Presentations to clubs and groups along my route - I’ll have illustrated lectures on a memory stick
