Resilience
Know you can

Resilience:  
Learnt indoors
Built outdoors

Resilience is your suit of armour. It helps you manage stress and reduce anxiety. Our resilience training programs teach you how to build your resilience so you can cope with life’s crap and live a happier life.

Webinars and workshops – Knowledge is power. Our resilience and leadership programs teach you techniques to build your resilience and lead your team.  

Outdoor experiences – Our outdoor resilience programs are held in some of the world’s most spectacular environments. Immersed in an unfamiliar place doing unfamiliar things, you’ll practice resilience techniques that last a lifetime.

Measurable results – We go further than just teach resilience techniques. We help you turn your new-found knowledge into healthy habits. And the effectiveness of your program is measurable with our unique Resilience Self-Assessment Tool.

Resilience and reference points

“I did that, so I can get through this.”

Our resilience training programs give you knowledge and experience that creates a reference point.

When life throws up a challenge, this reference point is something you can look back on and say “I did that, so I can get through this.”

Your reference point might be a workshop filled with practical ways to reduce stress and create healthy habits. Or an outdoor program with challenges overcome every day.

Reference points give you confidence. No matter how bad things get, you know you can get through.

So grateful my Son and I got to share this brilliant experience with an amaizing group of people. The feelings of support, connection, encouragement, education, growth and so many more were experienced during the journey through Nepal. Truly one of the highlights of my life.

Thank you Nick, David and the Nepalese team for providing a life changing experience!! My daughter & I were fortunate to be involved in the inaugural Resilience Builders Everest Base Camp trek. Whilst the trek fulfilled a lifelong personal ambition, it was made so much more special being able to share this unforgettable experience with her and knowing our safety and well being were always a priority.

“We recently had the pleasure of listening to David Buttifant from the Resilience Builders. David’s knowledge, insights and practical advice on the topics of motivation and goal setting we’re outstanding. Our management team found the advice David shared not only helpful but inspiring. We have taken many of David’s lessons away and implemented them into our roles within the business. Thank you David.”

The Resilience Builders, David and Nick, were superb. They engaged us with real life experiences and reflections. Participants felt willing to be swept up in their optimism and practical suggestions. Everyone took away different learnings about themselves. Each of us have developed life-long skills. throughout this fantastically respectful series of sessions.

I went to Everest Base Camp in 2017 with my then 14 yo son. Nick and David from resilience Builders as well as the highly professional and experienced team from Nepal made for an exceptional and lasting experience for both of us. Couldn't recommend this trip highly enough...

Free discovery session

A discovery session with our world-class facilitators reveals the nitty gritty of what you’re trying to achieve. And it helps focus our collective efforts on the important stuff. We’ll listen, ask questions, and deliver a resilience training program proposal for you to consider.

  • The positives are immense. It’s made me feel really proud that we’ve done this together, that we’ve had this time. We’ll always remember it.

  • David and Nick were brilliant at conducting a workshop that met the needs of my team whilst at the same time the needs of each individual. At the end of the session we walked away knowing our colleagues just that little bit better, and with a tangible result.
