Meet the Team


Meredith Adams

Meredith created MAD Challenges as a way to share her love of the outdoors and experience Scotland in a new way. She gets involved with all things MAD Challenges, from blog writing and partnerships, to event operations and portaloo hire!

Meredith is mad about: “adventures to the mountains and climbing Munros.”





Dave Bell

Dave created MAD Challenges with Meredith because nothing like it existed and he thought it should. Formerly a climate scientist and outdoor instructor, you could say Dave is pretty keen on green. He likes to get excited about what MAD Challenges could become.

Dave is mad about: “outdoor kit, even though he clearly can’t fit anymore in his ‘cosy’ flat…”






Amie Farrington

Amie helps with MAD strategy and content, but her main focus is on you! As a user experience designer, she is always thinking of creative ways to make MAD Challenges and our websites the best they can be.

Amie is mad about: “cheerleading, she loves to coach and to lift people in the air (sometimes at the same time!)”
