Often overlooked, the impact that travel has on the individual is often profound. Going beyond the immediate enjoyment and wonder, the lasting effect of travel is to broaden minds, encourage tolerance and recognition of the fragility of the planet and the need to protect it.

Dwayne believes that the next generation – from all walks of life – need to see and fall in love with the wonderful wilderness and wildlife of their local areas and understand the relationship between what we do here and how it affects the rest of the world (and vice versa) so that they will fight to protect it.
In 2010, as a protest to gang violence and a slap in the face of stereotypes, Dwayne walked to the Magnetic North Pole, becoming the first black Briton to achieve this feat, later that year he was also named Choice FM’s Role Model of the Year. On his return he was invited to Buckingham Palace at a reception to mark the centenary of Scott’s expedition to the South Pole in the presence of the HRH Queen Elizabeth II.
Since then he has dedicated his life to helping urban youth by focusing on outdoor activities, such as walking and climbing. In 2018 he led a group of inner-city London youths on a series of challenges which culminated in them climbing Ben Nevis – known as Street to Peak. As a result Dwayne has been awarded the ‘Freedom of the City of London’ by its Lord Mayor. Dwayne is a dedicated Ambassador for the Scout Association, the National Trust the Woodland Trust and Ordnance Survey.


Having originally completed her undergraduate degree in Hospitality Management, Roz’s roots are firmly embedded in tourism and a love of travel despite her working life in Market Research and business intelligence spanning numerous industries from arts & culture to FMCG. Roz is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Surrey into the long-terms effects of transformational of Wildlife experiences on pro-environmental and conservation behaviours. A passionate researcher and wildlife enthusiast, the inspiration for her PhD came from a turtle named Goia and her young son’s subsequent determination to protect the marine environment and influence others to do the same.


After 15 years of living on a road (privileged enough to have traveled unassisted and out of curiosity to over 80 countries when so many people are doing it because simply, they have no other choice), intertwined with work at numerous international projects and organizations, including Polish Foreign Office, a couple of NGOs, and high-end tourism associations, I might have experienced some of the world’s extremes – both geographical and societal. All those, and other more or less profound, or even spiritual life experiences, made me come to a strong realization that people’s nature is innately good and that tourism can be a suitable vehicle for social, economic, and environmental transformation like few industries can. It all eventually brought me to the Transformational Travel Council, which I joined as a first volunteer back in 2018 to support Jake Haupert in his big, yet considered ‘woo woo’ back then, idea. I am honored to be an Ambassador for Synergy – The Retreat Show and Tenson. Privately, I am a rock-climbing enthusiast and vulnerability advocate, living in magical Slovenia.
