Special Award to Australian OE Professional

Australian, Clare Dallat will become the first person outside of North America to be awarded the prestigious Reb Gregg Wilderness Management Award at this event.

The award recognises significant contribution to risk management in the outdoor education profession.

Clare is Executive Director of Research and Innovation, and Director of Risk Resolve at The Outdoor Education Group and a regular speaker at NOEC.

Commenting on being advised of her Award success, Claire said:

“I’m truly honoured and humbled to have received this award from the Wilderness Risk Management Committee. I’ve been so fortunate to have worked alongside many wonderful practitioners and academics over the past twenty years that have challenged, supported and enabled my continued learning and development in outdoor risk management. This award is testament to teamwork, and to never settling for status quo. Above all, it is for the people on our programs: that they both experience the most enriching outdoor program and where their genuine care and protection from harm are the ultimate aims”.
