Stuart Malcolmson
Business Development & Procurement Specialist

Even at a very young age I was always interested in business, but had a greater passion for the outdoors.  Having started work in the outdoor equipment retail sector and then moved into outdoor learning and development.  During that time, I worked on various projects developing outdoor centres and growing their customer base as a centre manager.  Having completed my ILM Level 5, I then moved into programme development and large scale procurement for national government contracts, overseeing every element of supplier sourcing and ongoing contract management.

In 2010 I also launched a separate business within the pet products sector, which now has it's own UK manufacturing facility, retail outlet and international sales and distribution.

Elle Malcolmson
Education & Legal Specialist

Having completed my degree, I trained and worked as a teacher, before taking some time out to travel throughout New Zealand.  After a short spell working in commercial insurance, I returned to the learning sector working for a major university in academic publishing and open access.  More recently I have been involved in the development of open access research education and training for teachers, lecturers and businesses alike.  This has allowed many academic professionals to gain access to a great deal of resources to support their development in their role.  My role within Inspire Outdoors is to create, develop and demonstrate the links back to national curriculum and other educational frameworks for every learning outside the classroom experience we delivery or procure.

Contracts Director & Youth Engagement Specialist

I’ve always been passionate about people power and belief in young people and their potential has been a central thread in my career.  I studied Management at University, and then worked within Further and Higher Education for many years, in a variety of settings.  In 2011, my career took a different route with contract management and delivery of the National Citizen Service programme; and I’ve carried on working in NCS within three separate organisations.

I’m now in the position of combining a number of interests and passions, including Coaching, Management, Youth Work/Education and Photography.

In 2010 I also launched a separate business within the pet products sector, which now has it's own UK manufacturing facility, retail outlet and international sales and distribution.
