About me

I’m Mark Wedgwood, and I live in Hathersage, Derbyshire, UK in the beautiful Peak District National Park. After a 30 year career in the global corporate world, specializing in Leadership Development, Diversity & Inclusion, and Cultural Intelligence, I took the chance of an unexpected but very welcome early retirement in Spring 2021. I now spend much of my time on adventure and travel projects.

Ever since I first rode in and around my native Yorkshire as a teenager on my first proper bicycle, I’ve been fortunate to spend much of my life travelling widely, at home and abroad, for both work and pleasure.

I am married with a son and a daughter (twins aged 21). When I’m not walking or cycling, I play bass with a local rock band, Mill Stone Grit.
