Raj Joshi is an expedition leader, doctor, and elite warrior.

Uniquely experienced in leadership, survival, and endurance across desert, jungle, polar and mountainous terrain, both in peacetime and in war, he has summited the highest mountain on every continent, led David Beckham through the Amazon rainforest, helped Cheryl Cole and Gary Barlow summit Kilimanjaro, looked after Josh Brolin in the Himalaya and helped the English RFU stage the highest game of rugby ever played at the time. His interest in the extremes of human performance – ‘going beyond your impossible’ – has helped him pioneer new routes through Antarctica, lead special military expeditions across Alaskan tundra, coordinate evacuations and extractions in South America, Southeast Asia, and Africa, aid disaster recovery and relief in Nepal, and escape a hostage situation in West Papua. Raj Joshi has gone to places unimaginable and returned, alive, energised, and inspired.

An enthralling storyteller, Raj Joshi is able to connect the lessons of high-performing environments to the practical challenges facing business leaders today. Embracing an Explorer’s Mindset, he shows how Expeditionary Thinking can foster adaptation, innovation, resilience, bold enterprise, and ultimately, competitive advantage.

Embracing the challenges he has faced and overcome, Raj shows how challenge can be empowering for the individual and team, developing resilience and fortifying character. This ultimately makes for a stronger organisation, giving a competitive advantage above all others.

Through the prism of diverse, elite teams operating in military, medical, and expeditionary environments – often in Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous conditions – Raj Joshi shows how to form and inspire connected, cohesive teams, developing true grit and resilience and lead them successfully across a challenging, changing landscape by setting ambitious goals and achieving them, together. He takes you to the edge of what’s possible, and beyond.
