Transform Your Team
We align leaders, energise cultures and build winning teams
Discover how a world-class adventurer, two-time Guinness Book Record holder and former senior manager at Deloitte can inspire your company with his powerful brand of keynotes, workshops and adventure programs.
From his work as a senior management consultant at Deloitte and experience leading expeditions to the most hostile corners of the planet, James understands that culture eats strategy for breakfast.
He also understands that in today’s rapidly changing business environment, your company faces constant challenges to team cohesion and alignment. Challenges that old methods of “team-building” simply don’t address.
A different approach is needed.
Through two world-first feats completed with his best mate – crossing the Tasman unassisted in nothing but a kayak and then completing the longest polar expedition of all time – James learned that the building blocks of trust are forged in shared real experiences.
These lessons are brought to life in his keynotes, workshops and transformation adventure programs. Lessons that could elevate your company to new levels of morale and growth.
If you want to be a better leader, grow your teams capabilities or experience one of Australia’s most renown keynote speakers then James Castrission and MyAdventureGroup might be just what you’re looking for.

“His incredible feat of endurance is a testament that surviving hell is all about heart, grit, humour and friendship.”Bear GryllsAdventurer and TV Presenter
“At first you ask ‘Why’? Why do some individuals risk everything to test the boundaries of endurance? Like all great stories this one offers answers. Through its humour and tears, its aspirations, perils, follies and ultimate triumph we learn what it is to be human. That, together, we negotiate the chaos of the world by relying on the better, more heroic, parts of ourselves.”George MillerOscar Winning Director

“Cas helped me enormously during preparation for my attempt to become the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop around the world. Cas might come across as an Aussie larikan at times, but his detailed approach to planning and risk management has seen him pull off not one, but two incredible Guinness World Records. Legend!”Jessica Watson OamYoungest RTW Sailor
“James gave us a timely reminder about digging in when times are tough and never giving up.

They are great guys with an inspirational story and they will always be welcome at the Waratahs.”Phil WaughEx-Wallaby and NSW Waratahs Captain

Had an amazing weekend with James’ company. Huge multi pitch abseil (200 metres+) on day one, including a stunning climb through the crack that separates Boars Head from the mainland. We followed this up with a tough night hike into camp, which meant that we worked up quite an appetite for the 5 star dinner! Afterwards, it was great to have a couple of beers with the guys around the campfire and listen to James’ incredible stories of adventure. Day two was a picturesque hike back up into Katoomba, before we all headed back home. Definitely recommended, worth the investment!!
