More scary than flying off a mountain is hearing scientists say they are not being taken seriously.

Malcolm selected as first speedflyer to join UN Environment’s ‘Mountain heroes’

Recently, Malcolm has been selected as the first paraglider, speedflyer and filmmaker to join UN Environment’s campaign ‘Mountain Heroes’. The team consists of a group of other famous athletes such as Canadian ice-climber Will Gadd, Austrian cyclist Michael Strasser, Kenyan Olympic skier Sabrina Simader and adventurer Ben Fogle, helping to draw attention to emerging environmental issues in mountains including climate change, waste and biodiversity loss.

Day to day, Malcolm runs his hospitality group based in Hong Kong and is a major influence in the F&B industry. His passion for design and food led him to co-found the multi-award winning Maximal Concepts, which manages and owns over eighteen brands and has restaurants in numerous international locations. In the past, Malcolm has been chosen by global brands as an Ambassador due to his unique position as a Chinese National primarily based in Asia, a market which unlike Europe is not oversaturated with key mountaineering figures, all with fairly similar stories and backgrounds. Malcolm’s unique background and experience generates a lot of interest not only with the sporting side but as one of Asia’s leading restauranteurs, providing different audience across both groups of media outlets.
