An ambitious young social entrepreneur, Josh Taylor and his unprecedented science and technology projects have captured the attention of the global media and the likes of Sir Richard Branson. 

Pioneering adventures from the edge of Space all the way to the bottom of the Ocean, he strives to demonstrate what can be achieved from limited budgets and qualifications when lofty ambitions, today's technology and a dash of ingenuity are combined.

Through his stories and lessons, Josh aims to inspire innovation as a keynote and after dinner speaker: his clients include everyone from start-ups to high-profile individuals and FTSE 100 companies.

Alongside his business partner Trudy Thompson, he set up his own retreat for fellow young entrepreneurs, helping them to find a solution to problems they face and to teach them the necessary skills to start their own businesses.

Josh is also passionate about sustainability and the environment, running his social enterprise by renewable energy from solar panels and a wind turbine on his Cornwall farm.

Lauded by The Huffington Post as one of ‘15 Young People Changing the World’, the stage for Josh’s entrepreneurial spirit was set back in 2011. With empty pockets, he decided the only way forward was to capture the curvature of the Earth on film from a DIY weather balloon at 118,000 feet in near Space.

A keen eye for the absurd, Josh went on to conceptualise the notion of Space Art: a project to send a blank canvas and tubes of paint to near Space, allowing Mother Nature to draw up some magic. The resulting painting was featured on Channel 4’s Four Rooms and Josh was given the opportunity to put on an exhibition of the art work and his other projects at a top London art gallery.

Enticed by Josh’s projects, Sir Richard Branson of the Virgin Group personally issued him the challenge to see how far under the ocean he could explore: ever ambitious, he also became the first person in history to send an amateur submersible to the bottom of the Milwaukee Deep in the Puerto Rican Trench (the deepest trench in the Atlantic Ocean!).

In between speaking engagements and running his business, Josh is also a regular contributer and blogger on The Huffington Post and guest blogger for notable sites such as Virgin.com. 

His speaking topics include:

- Achieving the impossible with low budget and few qualifications

- Entrepreneurship and innovation

- Turning sustainability into profit; running an eco-friendly business

- Using social media and videos to build a brand

- Adventure, exploration, and getting sponsored to do what you love
