I attended this course with a friend before backpacking around South America for six weeks in summer. I think it's fair to say we were both pretty sceptical beforehand, but the course was both remarkably interesting and extremely useful. I've sat through a couple of health and safety-type courses for other things which were pretty ...More
Currently half way through my 5 month travels, I can only now appreciate how useful the course was, with advice and tips constantly in the back of my mind and Charlie remaining an ever knowledgable and accessible source of information. I would highly recommend this to anyone heading travelling. Thanks so much! Milo, March 2016More
signed Katherine up for one of the Objective Travel courses, despite being hold by her that it was unnecessary. She had already started packing at this stage but on coming home from the course, the rucksack was emptied and she started again.More

I have been meaning to write to the team at Objective Travel ever since I got back from three months travelling in Africa back in 2013. I had attended your brilliant objective gap safety course in December 2012 but, crucially, my travelling partner had not. This all came to the fore in March 2013 when we were mugged late in the evening on a street in Durban. We made several mistakes that evening (all which I was told about on the course)...More
First trust is at the heart of our partnership, real trust uniequivocal. When we hired Objective Travel Safety some 12 years ago, we were looking for a Company that would grow with us, meet our challenges. I wanted the relationship to become sustainable. Since 2004, Objective has been developing and delivering 58 courses for 671 reporters and journalists from 40 countriesMore

"Very useful", "invaluable advice" and "I had become complacent" were just some comments that we had from our predominantly female buying and shoot teams who travel to the four corners of the world. Charlie delivered a set of really enjoyable and relaxed sessions that gave our teams real food for thought and will help keep them safe in their travels"More

The Medical Research Council (MRC) of the UK have used Objective for a number of years to provide staff training on the potential hazards of overseas & UK travel. The trainer (Charlie McGrath) developed a bespoke course for the MRC which has proved very popular and educational for those attending. I would highly recommend Objective.More

"An excellent course which I’m sure we will run again in a couple of years. Charlie got the balance right between being informative without being over alarmist."More

"Objective have been enormously helpful, not only in training our staff to travel and work safely in post conflict settings, but also in equipping the organisation with its Crisis Management needs. We cannot recommend their services highly enough.”More
George Shaw, Travel and Security Advisor, HIV/AIDS Alliance, March 2010
"An excellent training package and just what we were looking for: risk awareness and planning for travellers of all levels of experience. Charlie's relaxed delivery style is clearly based on years of experience and authority and gave us complete confidence in what he said. We all found the course informative and reassuring as individuals and as a company, and are all the better for having experienced it."More

Charlie McGrath was engaged by Lucy Electric to provide Overseas Traveller Training to our staff to equip them with the necessary skills to travel safely and securely. Charlie exudes competence in his calm and comprehensive delivery of training programmes. He is extremely knowledgeable and provides real world examples and exercises to ensure his students understand the subject.
We were so impressed with Charlie in the UK that we then asked him to deliver training in India and the Middle East. Once again he exceeded expectations and was roundly complemented by all employees.
