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 had an amazing time on 360’s week long Expeditions Skills Course in the Pyrenees.  Guides Jo and Rolfe were incredible. I felt very safe and would trust them with my life on any other expedition. The course is great for people that have just got into mountaineering and want to learn the required skills. We learnt so much within a week. I would highly recommend this course to anyone!
