Georgia Yurkwich-Spink

Director of Expeditions and Programmes

Georgia started life at WE as an Assistant Expedition Manager in 2007.

Originally (and proudly!) from Whitby in North Yorkshire, she defected to the south due to a job in the bar industry and gradually moved across into the wine trade. Whilst in this role, Georgia was able to pursue her interest in water sports and joined a local Dragon Boat Team. One year later she was representing Great Britain and had become a World Champion! 4 years later and she had 11 medals to her name. This life-changing experience made Georgia re-think what she wanted from her work life and so she went back to university to study Sports Leadership.

This led to Georgia discovering Wilderness Expertise and she spent a hectic summer in 2006 getting to know the company. It wasn’t long before she’d worked her way in permanently and is now a very happy and experienced member of the team. Georgia’s skill is in relationship development and she delights in meeting clients and extoling the virtues of the myriad opportunities that WE offers. She’s a skilled public speaker with a breadth of experience managing expeditions and always places customer care and quality at the forefront of what she does.

Georgia’s travels have taken her to Armenia, Mexico, Hong Kong, China, Australia, Indonesia, Venezuela, Morocco, numerous places in Europe and now, thanks to her role at WE, has finally been to several sub-Saharan African countries which she’ll readily confess to being obsessed with.

Georgia is passionate about travel and sport and knows only too well about the fulfillment, excitement and challenges that both can provide. She hopes to venture to yet more new places whilst working for WE and continues to be fill her spare time with sporting pursuits. She can be found most evenings of the week lifting weights and testing her physical and mental ability participating in CrossFit.

David Addis

David Addis

Senior Expedition Manager

Dave started at Wilderness Expertise in September 2014 as an Assistant Expedition Manager.

During Dave’s gap year to South America and Asia, the impact of seeing different ways of living and awe-inspiring scenery led him to ask “how can I see more of this world?”.

Since then Dave has become a university graduate in Adventure Tourism Management and spent the last six years working in personal development and trek guiding in Chile, Guatemala and China. More recently he spent three years instructing with Outward Bound Hong Kong, where he had the chance to facilitate young people through life-changing experiences in the wilds of Hong Kong (they do exist!).

This year, Dave lead an expedition to Uganda for WE and thoroughly enjoyed living closely with a Ugandan community and bringing young people to such a beautiful part of the world. Outside leading and managing expeditions, Dave is improving his Chinese with hopes of accomplishing the Mt Kawa Karpo pilgrimage in China in the future.

Charlotte Dyson

Charlotte Dyson

Assistant Expedition Manager

Charlotte started at Wilderness Expertise in October 2016 as an Assistant Expedition Manager.

Charlotte has previously worked in a variety of events and logistics positions across the education and charity sector, but was keen to put this experience into practice in a role that ties in with her belief in the benefits of travel, the outdoors and challenge on personal development.

Spending four months travelling and volunteering in Sub-Saharan Africa in 2011 changed her outlook on life, and she’s been on a quest to explore as much of the world ever since! Whilst somewhat unable to resist the lure of far-flung destinations including Myanmar, Cuba and South America, she’s also keen to explore more of the UK and has recently discovered the delights of wild camping! Her most recent challenges included Stand Up Paddleboarding across Scotland and climbing Kilimanjaro. She’s now training to go from novice sailor to ocean-racer to take part in a leg of the Clipper Round the World Sailing Race – a steep learning curve!

In her spare time Charlotte enjoys walking her dog, pilates, yoga and also helps teach ballet.

Hannah started at Wilderness Expertise in October 2016 as an Assistant Expedition Manager.

Upon completion of her Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in Norway, which included trekking across the Hardangervidda Plateau, mountain biking and sea kayaking through the fjords, Hannah felt inspired to start work in the great outdoors. She has since been building up her experience and qualifications and has now completed a three week expedition across East Greenland and a two week expedition in Iceland as an Assistant Leader.

In her free time Hannah enjoys mountain biking, walking and catching up with the latest films at the cinema.

Steve Gray

Steve Gray

Freelance Liaison

Despite coming from SW London Steve has always been an explorer and was fascinated by wildlife! As a kid, he would ride his bike to any bit of open space like Wimbledon Common, Mitcham Common or Bushy Park to explore and search for frogs, newts or small mammals and watch the deer in the Royal Parks.

Nothing has changed, except that Steve has now gone a little further afield. He still goes exploring in many of the upland and countryside areas of the UK and as an International Mountain Leader he has been lucky enough to lead treks in very many parts of the world. He is truly passionate about getting young people to develop their potential and believes that the DofE Award is a great vehicle for them to use to realise this potential.

Something that most folk don’t know about Steve is that he has signed the “Official Secrets Act”. He would love to tell you why, but ……….
