About

Founder David Gregory is an outdoor education teacher with over 16 years experience in running a range of experiential education programs.

With qualifications and extensive experience in Wilderness First Aid, risk management and crisis response, David's worked throughout Australia and Internationally in a variety of environments, managing risk and incident response.

From being a first responder, to safety officer as well as director of operations, David’s first hand experience in field operations, incident prevention/management and crisis response culminated in the development of a robust management and reporting system called Xcursion to help protect staff and participants, as well as manage and mitigate medical risks.

"I designed Xcursion to solve my own problem. I needed fast, secure access to critical student information when I was in the field. Trawling through bunches of paper to find vital pieces of information I needed to put my hands on immediately, was time consuming and only added to the risk of harm when working with students."

"As risk management has been a huge part of my work over the years, this was a simple extension of that work, finding a better way to manage medical risks. Any way we can make educational experiences easier and safer to run the better and I continue to work at the forefront of the industry to ensure we continue to deliver the best tools possible for the task."

David writes a weekly blog covering experiential educational issues as well as specific risk management topics.
