The Team

Lizzie Reading

Lizzie Reading

Head of Planning

Lizzie joined True Adventure in September 2015 with an extensive background in planning. In previous roles she has worked with both schools and government departments heading up logistics from Duke of Edinburgh expeditions to conferences for the Home Office. In her academic life, she has pursued her love of African religious history with practical research in Uganda and Rwanda, completing her BA in 2008 and MA in 2013. Whilst in Uganda, Lizzie learnt Luanda, the regional dialect of the Buganda people, and speaks a small amount of French.

Having travelled throughout south east Asia, the Indian sub-continent, north and eastern Africa and Canada her passion and first-hand knowledge of other cultures is extensive. Indeed, whilst in Mumbai Lizzie was asked to be an extra in a Bollywood film! Encouraging young people to get out there and explore the world is as important as tea in Lizzie’s opinion.

Lizzie is a keen rugby player, competing in the annual university grand finals at Twickenham in 2008, she also likes to compete in cross country running and swimming events, such as Three Forts or the annual Christmas day sea swim!
