About Us

Red Rock International was founded to develop people and make a positive impact in companies and communities. Our roots are in developing teams and leaders through challenging experience based learning. As people with an adventurous outlook on life, we jumped at the chance to provide input on the design of a corporate adventure challenge in Kazakhstan in 2006. This was our first foray into large scale corporate challenge events – and we were hooked. Since then we have stayed busy designing and delivering increasingly sophisticated events to meet a wide range of customer requirements. We love a challenge and enjoy new locations and stretching client briefs. 

Robert Landon

Robert is a co-founder of Red Rock International and now co-ordinates the different offices as International Director.
As a veteran of RRI challenge events, he understands that the job of running a flawless event is often more demanding even than taking part!
Robert’s always on the lookout for chances to develop businesses and develop people by sharing adventures.
He’s often out mountain biking or climbing in Scotland and increasingly has some of his four young children along for the journey!

Nick Ashley

In the years since starting Red Rock International, Nick has developed training and events for some of the world’s leading companies across four continents and has many entertaining stories from the journey. However, what most often strikes people about Nick is how interested he is in them and their story. He embodies the company motto of ‘believing in people.’ Now heading up our team in Qatar Nick is entering a new adventure. He maintains a remarkable life balance and enjoys time with his family, regular runs and even the occasional mountaineering foray. 

Rachel White

Rachel has a passion for developing young people and is heading up our student leadership development CSR programmes in the Gulf. With her background in education and 5 years’ experience at Hamad bin Khalifa University in Doha, she has a great understanding of how leadership experiences are vital for developing students.
As a new mum, she’s busy full time in and out of work.

Sam Pate

Sam is one of the UK team responsible for designing stages for global challenges. His background at Rolls Royce prepared him for engineering the innovative builds we include on challenges and the attention to detail required for flawless delivery. Sam has more hobbies than spare time and struggles to fit in all the surfing, climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking and socialising he craves! 

Euan Mackenzie

Euan joined Red Rock International with a strong background in project management, which he’s put to good use in managing some of RRI’s epic projects in the UK, Qatar and Kazakhstan. He does a solid job of steering all our creative and adventurous ideas into a format that will actually work. Outside work, he’s often found admiring his collection of bikes (and sometimes riding them), or enjoying the beach just down the hill from his house is Swansea.

Merna Faheem

Merna joined RRI as a marketing graduate and with experience creating marketing buzz around events.
She now plays a strong role in creating the visual identity and collateral for our global events and brings a great eye for design to all she does. Although originally from Oman, Merna is now part of our Cairo team.
Merna is a very active sportswoman.

Hong Moon

Hong was the first Korean to earn UK rock climbing and kayak coaching qualifications. He is now a training pioneer in Korea, promoting the concept of developing people through stretching and challenging adventure based events.
His great passion is in developing people and he has many fans whose lives have been impacted on his training programmes.

Charlie Wilson

Charlie is a creative type who brings fresh ideas both to our event designs, and also to our event communications. He has a great way with words and is the go-to person for web content, press releases, social media updates and most importantly – grammar correction!
Outside work, he’s busy with three children and the important task of maintaining his encyclopaedic knowledge of movies.

Matt Low

The outdoors and adventure have been a defining part of Matt's life from an early age, and it was not long before he entered the outdoor pursuits world - at one time one of the youngest Mountain Leaders in the UK. He has both lived and worked in Africa and France, so brings a unique flavour to RRI.  Matt is also passionate about training and development: he has recently started an initiative to help people gain the experience needed to become outdoor instructors.
