The Board of Outward Bound International is pleased to announce that Iain Peter will assume his responsibilities as the new Executive Director of OBI, effective July 1, 2013.
Iain has worked across cultural boundaries including experience in India, Nepal, the former USSR, North and South America and throughout Europe. Iain is well versed in risk mitigation with experience that includes managing risks associated with outdoor adventurous activities as well as corporate risks associated with activities in finance, governance and reputation building.
Iain has held a number of senior executive and Director positions including Director, Adventure Activity Associates Ltd.; CEO Mountain Training Trust; Executive Secretary UK Mountain Training Board; Training Administrator British Mountaineering Council. He has held a variety of volunteer positions and continues to be a much sought after private mountain guide.
Nilai University plans to work with the Outward Bound Trust of Malaysia to introduce an Outward Bound course into Nilai U’s curriculum. The Outward Bound course has been added to the offering because it is designed to develop and strengthen the inner character by allowing students to learn through experience.
Such courses are very much in line with Nilai U’s ethos of ‘Enrichment for Life’ which seeks to build students into academically proficient and socially confident young adults. This is down to the holistic approach that Nilai U adopts towards education.
