LATEST SEMINARS FOR AO`17 – SAT/SUN TIME SLOTS TBA

Desert Overlanding for Women – Georgina ‘Jess’ Davis
Short film: 10 minutes, Presentation 20 minutes, Q&A 15 minutes

In September 2016 Georgina Davis finally decided to join her husband on one of his overland trips to Morocco. Through a short film and presentation she discusses her fears about the trip, how she prepared and how she came to love the experience.

Together with discussing general safety issues and packing for women, as the only female on the trip she will also talk about how to deal with a group of men, and importantly how to find peace, serenity and relaxation within a vehicle-based expedition. Although not without its challenges, to encourage other wives/partners/girlfriends to agree to go along is no bad thing, something that can actually be a great experience.

Georgina is a journalist with 20 years’ experience including covering war zones, humanitarian disasters and now … overland travel.

Security Planning for Overland Travel – James Davies
Short film: 10 minutes, Presentation 20 minutes, Q&A 15 minutes

Many overlanders are avoiding travel to regions that were staples in previous decades and the reasons often seem obvious. But are they real? How do we assess the risks and make informed decisions about where it is safe to travel?

Canadian born and UK based, James Davis has been overlanding and working in international security for 30 years. He has lived and worked across Africa and currently advises a network of over 100 humanitarian organisations working in some of the world’s most dangerous areas. He will present tools and tips that anyone can use to make clear and informed decisions when assessing actual risks facing overland journeys.
