Dave, the current writer of this blog, is the Corporate & Charity Events Coordinator for Pinnacle Pursuits. My experience lies primarily in outdoor adventure tourism throughout Ireland, Europe and Canada. In addition, I received my masters in Creativity and Innovation from the University of Malta and love to bring both of those elements to the fore in all my endeavors. Meanwhile, I have a keen interest in business development, motivational techniques, progressive mental health tools and all things outdoors. My writing will typically touch on any and all of those matters while occasionally sprinkling in some humor and hopefully positively impacting any reader.

Guest Writers

Through our work, we have had the fortune of meeting some incredible innovators and leadership minds along the way. Occasionally, we will invite them to share their thoughts on matters relevant to you with an alternative viewpoint. Hopefully, this will refresh from the norm and give new, intriguing insights for you to enjoy.

If there is a subject, issue or interest you’d like to see an article on, reach out and ask us. We’re enjoying the exploration of writing but the more questions we answer for you, the more functional our posts are.
