#10 Robert Bruce - Finding Yourself & Creating Community in the Outdoors
Play • 45 min

Robert Bruce is the founder of Got To Get Out, a social enterprise adventure group that aims to get more people into the outdoors, and a 2019 New Zealander of the Year semi-finalist. Over the past five years, Got To Get Out has grown into a thriving outdoors community, taking thousands of people on trips all across New Zealand. Robert's a rather unlikely outdoors guide. He spent most of his 20s in a high-level, high-stress corporate job. After losing his job, an impulsive trip to Mount Everest Basecamp in Nepali Himalya, following in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary, changed the course of his life.

In this episode, we talk about Robert's personal transformation, the origins and mission of Got To Get Out, and the importance of 'getting out' into nature to your health and wellbeing.
