Hi, I'm Dave, I've been adventuring since 2005, when it became obvious that my cat enjoyed life more than I did. I'm now a self-propelled record-breaking adventurer, motivational speakerauthor of multiple books, maker of little films and founder of SayYesMore; a social enterprise that nudges people towards finding out what they're really capable of.

 

IN THE BACKGROUND

SAY YES MORE

A personal motto that has now become a wider message, a nudge towards finding out what you're really capable of. Join a growing community and play a part in making this world kinder.

TEDx Brussels

What an opportunity, to stand in front of 2000 people and share a message to a global audience. And the message is a simple one: life is too short to live for the weekend, so make life as fun as a holiday.

ADVENTURE

EXPEDITION1000

Twenty-five different journeys, each over 1000 miles, each using a different form of non-motorised transport. This is the project that keeps me adventuring and gives me some identity in a crazy world.

Get ambitious 


In terms of ambition and persistence, Dave’s Expedition1000 would be difficult to equal. I wish him the very best of luck and willpower to help him complete his mammoth task.
— Sir Ranulph Fiennes
