Justin Featherstone is a leadership consultant and expedition leader. He has worked with a variety of Public Sector and commercial organisations both in the UK and overseas and specialises in developing values-based leadership, shared leadership and organisational culture. He also is an occasional lecturer on leadership at the Universities of Exeter and Ljubljana, Slovenia.

A former Major in The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, he deployed on various operations over his eighteen years’ service, including commanding a Company in Southern Iraq in 2004. He left the Army in 2007 and his final posting was as the principal leadership Staff Officer at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

A keen mountaineer and whitewater kayaker, he has led and participated in over thirty overseas expeditions to the mountains, rivers and rainforests of the world.

He was awarded the Military Cross for his actions in Iraq and is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.  As an Honorary Fellow of the University of Exeter, he has a role in the Business School and supporting the Exeter Leadership Institute; he is also a member of the Alpine Club and an Accredited Practitioner of the Institute for Outdoor Learning.  In 2011, he spent time living with the Cabecar Indians of Costa Rica as research for an MA in Leadership Studies at Exeter University, which he completed in 2012.

Justin is also a qualified Winter Mountain Leader, white water kayaking coach and climbing instructor.  He lives in Devon with Tigris, an errant street mutt he brought back from Iraq who shares his passion for Dartmoor.

Leadership for me is the simple desire to have a positive impact on those around you and I am therefore deeply committed to inclusivity, as well as both distributed and ethical leadership
