British Exploring Leader Awards 2017
The British Exploring Leader Awards recognises and celebrates inspiring leadership (whether still developing or hugely experienced) individual skills, and collegiate spirit before, during and after each of our expedition seasons.
We will be presenting two awards at the end of this season, The Les Morgan Leader of the Year Award and The Watson New Leader of the Year Award. These are professional awards, bestowed by colleagues; Leaders and members of the British Exploring team. Individuals are shortlisted on the basis of nominations, with the final Awards being made by a judging panel.
The Les Morgan Leader of the Year Award is supported by his family with a generous donation. Les was a well loved and respected Leader for British Exploring and since he sadly passed away in 2004 his family have kindly supported our explorers and leaders with a number of Award’s and bursaries. The Watson New Leader of the Year Award, has been set-up to celebrate our first time Leaders and has been named after our recently retired Chairman Teddy Watson.
The nominees for the 2017 Awards will be announced on this webpage one by one from December 14th until the end of February, with the overall winners being announced at our Celebration Evening at the Royal Geographical Society on Tuesday 13 March.
