Meet the team who put together the Euro’s most anticipated team building event.
Peter is also CEO of Benchmark plc and entrepreneur in residence at Oxford Science Innovations. His commitment to Marco Polo Events is allied to his belief in the importance of health and wellbeing in society today, and the critical role corporations can play in this.
He led the investment team of ex-competitors to ensure this iconic event survived by acquiring the business from IMG in 2016. Since this the event has gone from strength to strength, with 5 UK Challenges held under the Marco Polo Events banner.
He guided the business through the Pandemic and oversaw the development of the BrainRace App and the launch of the 1st Euro Challenge.
As founder and major shareholder Dave continues to support the CEO in looking to build Commercial opportunities as well as assisting in the design of the UK and other challenges.
With over 13 years of events experience, 2022 saw Clayton return to his favourite event having previously worked as Course Director in 2015 and 2016.
'Rallycross may have been louder, but Challenge Events are more testing and more exhilarating!'
After his participations in the UK Challenge, starting in 2017, Oliver and David Moran were dreaming together of setting up a Euro Challenge event. What started as a dream in 2020 ended up in a fantastic first event in September 2022 with 24 teams participating.
'A dream has become true as European mainland companies have now the same opportunity to experience this inclusive overwhelming event. It was beautiful and emotional to see that the participants of the first Euro Challenge were reacting in the same way as I previously experienced myself participating in the UK events.'
