Story of James Riley

Chairman, Royal Geographical Society



Through the Royal Geographical Society, I have hosted speakers who are pushing the boundaries of human achievement across the world. Dangling off the top of a skyscraper is an opportunity for me to follow in my own small way. Mandarin Oriental, whom I work for, moved to One Island East in April and we have greatly enjoyed joining this community. The HK Vertical 1000 is an opportunity to celebrate this and give back to the community through Outward Bound, whose programmes provide amazing opportunities for young people to get outside and develop valuable skills and grit.
