Corporate Foot Trails

A corporate Foot Trail will contribute directly to the achievement of your business goals.

Taking you and your team out of your comfort zones and into a different environment, you’ll find the time and space to be inspired, achieve creative thought and step back from the day to day.

You’ll facilitate your decision making and enhance relationships.

Why Corporate Walking Days?

With 15 years’ award winning expertise creating walks for people from around the world, Foot Trails has been invited (and trusted) to organise and lead corporate walk events for Mars, John Lewis Partnership, Aspen Insurance, The House, brand agency Bath and more.

Benefits to employees and company:

  • take your team out of their comfort zone and unleash creativity
  • increase your team’s ability to view and solve problems
  • reward your team

Health and well-being is a step beyond health and safety. Taking care of employee well-being and health can help to improve a company’s competitiveness in attracting and retaining a work force.

Over the past 20 years David has been a part of the exploration of South West England creating trails, exploring new areas and researching local stories and legend.

David grew up in the Cotswolds where he would often be found raiding the best wild plum trees or walking the hills with the family dog Meg.
