Dean Beard

Initially focusing on a professional career in the education sector; spanning both secondary and college education, it was a genuine love of the outdoors and adventure that inspired Dean to change direction. Having made that commitment, he has gone on to lead over 70 international expeditions with more than a decade of experience guiding people to some of the most exhilarating locations on the planet.

Having a natural passion for all things adventurous, both on land and on the water, has allowed him to lead an extremely wide array of expeditions. This enthusiasm has allowed Dean to achieve a high level of qualification and lead expeditions as diverse as climbing Aconcagua in South America, cycling across Death Valley in North America, jungle trekking and diving in Borneo, horse trekking across the Himalayas, technical high-altitude rock climbing in the Alps, building schools in Africa and rafting down the Nile to name a few.

As a leader, Dean gets his enjoyment not just from traveling, but also from seeing others achieve their dreams, push themselves to the limits and come back home feeling elated.

I was lucky enough to climb Kilimanjaro with the fabulous Jo Bradshaw in 2017, sadly I was unable to summit due to oxygen problems.

I climbed for 2 1/2 days and 4200 metres, it was an amazing experience and Jo along with the local crew were so professional and caring and were watching out for all of us without us even being aware. I would readily recommend 360 expeditions to anybody wishing to follow their dreams.
