Liam Taylor

Co-Founder


Liam brings a diverse background, having gained a Bachelor of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management from Lincoln University before embarking on a career in the outdoors as an instructor at Outward Bound New Zealand, and later co-founding Backcountry NZ, a leading adventure guiding company based in the South Island, NZ.

While pursuing his passion for snow sports, Liam has worked as a Ski Patroller in New Zealand and the USA, and later a professional Heli-ski Guide for five consecutive seasons, gaining qualifications in Rock Climbing, Mountaineering, White Water Kayaking, Risk Management, Advanced Emergency Care and Avalanche forecasting.

There was a shift in focus for Liam when he realised the potential for experience based events for corporations and their staff, along with catering for individuals. In July 2007 Liam established Exclusive Events NZ in the popular resort town of Queenstown, focusing solely on destination and event management.

Liam has over twenty years experience producing large scale events and bespoke adventures throughout New Zealand. Having worked with several of NZ’s leading companies and prominent individuals including Sir Richard Branson, and Prime Minister John Key, Liam has learnt the importance of delivering premium service with the quality of an international standard.
