What does it take to lead a team in some of the world’s most dangerous regions? BLM talks to explorer and former army officer, Levison Wood.
Levison Wood is a writer, explorer, and photographer, whose televised walking expeditions have taken him around the world.
Levison’s Channel 4 documentaries have taken him along the length of the Nile, from the Himalayas to Afghanistan and Bhutan, on an expedition from Mexico to Colombia and, most recently, across the Caucasus from Russia to Iran.
His extensive travel experiences in some of the world’s most remote and dangerous areas have taken Levison to over 90 countries.
In 2006, he was commissioned as an officer into the Parachute Regiment of the British Army and in 2008 served in Afghanistan. He is currently a Major in the British Army Reserve, serving in 77th Brigade.
Wood speaks with Business Leader Magazine about the importance of leadership and how to build a team around you.
