10 Downing Street
Posted 12th February 2015
Before officially launching the headnorth project, the Y.CO headnorth team paid a successful visit to 10 Downing Street. Gary Wright, Charlie Birkett and Yves Damette visited Number 10 with headnorth expedition leader Alan Chambers MBE, who is an ambassador for the GREAT Britain Campaign (also known as the GREAT Campaign).
The campaign showcases the best that Britain has to offer in areas from Culture to Technology. Alan is part of the Adventure is Great initiative, and the team discussed headnorth and its impact with representatives from the GREAT Campaign.
Charlie Birkett, headnorth team member and co-founder and CEO of Y.CO, said: “We’re excited about launching headnorth and we feel strongly that this initiative has great potential to be part of something bigger. This was a great opportunity to find out more about the GREAT campaign and discuss ways we can work together.”
