Someone who needs little introduction – the one man networking machine that is Chris Marsh – Founder of Agents Of and responsible for developing strategic partnerships on behalf of his clients. Chris, thankfully, is a huge advocate of Freshwalks and has been a regular since day one. He’s always there to listen, help and advise – say hello if you see him on one of our walks – or find out more on his LinkedIn profile.
I was a walking virgin but was intrigued as to how I could meet new people doing something different – so I went out and bought the wrong gear (an oversized bag and fashion boots) and loved it.
Most of them I think.
FOMO, meeting new people, learning from them, helping them, book recommendations and the exercise.
Difficult as I enjoy them all, probably Edale to Grindsbrook via Kinder Scout (good challenge and spectacular views)
Sliding down the hill in the snow!
Yes, I developed a relationship with someone I met which led to direct business specifically, I’m sure there are many other ways which I’ve helped the UKFast brand by attending consistently too (I often say if I don’t do this, my competitors might!).

I suppose it’s the fact that it is so different and the initial one thing we have in common with each other is the walking element, this makes it so easy to speak to complete strangers and develop long-lasting relationships.
There are so many components which make up a Freshwalk and I try and make sure that I enjoy my time, so I make the most of the hours and people I spend that time with.
Challenging, Enjoyable, Worthwhile.
