Richard Bowles is a multi-world-record adventurer and founder of Adventure Alchemy, dedicated to exploring how leaders lean into the challenges of the modern world.
His risky adventure experiences and unique research have enabled him to accelerate performance and organisational progress for clients like NAB, Woolworths, BHP, and Flight
Centre. As a multi-disciplined educator, executive advisor, and award-winning presenter, his work features in worldwide media for the likes of CNN, Sky News and The Financial Review. He's also the host of the multi-accoladed documentary series 'In Their Shoes,' a gritty blend of education and factual reality. 

His extraordinary story starts from modest beginnings; he failed school, worked in construction, and retail, drove a truck, and made cold calls, all before competitively growing a
successful sales leadership career. From there, he co-pioneered a global sponsorship consultancy and established a national annual convention with over a thousand delegates from around the world before founding Adventure Alchemy, working with a research team of psychologists to understand the secrets of change, resilience and high performance in an unpredictable world Bowles has dedicated his life to exploring how success can arise from within chaos.

His miraculous accomplishments, which include surviving volcano eruptions, crocodile-infested rivers and missile fire, have given him a unique perspective on how businesses can succeed even when the odds are stacked against them. Whilst it's unlikely that your business is facing the threat of molten lava or ferocious animals, Bowles' experiences help companies thrive in the face of adversity.

Richard engaged a team of Woolworths Area Managers who proved to be a tough crowd of non-athletic types, but still made his story relevant to their working lives, I thought he was fantastic!


Richard really brought the energy and passion to the fore in our participants and everyone was buzzing and people stuck around long after the session had ended, Inspired!

Cancer Council

Thank you Richard once again for sharing your incredible story with us at the NASSCOM BPM Strategy Summit 2017. It was a real joy and we heard great feedback about the ways in which you inspired our delegates on how to navigate through the challenges, giving them the tools and strategies to follow through - to execute plans, and ultimately gain results! We were so thrilled to have you!
