Alastair Galpin

took to world record-breaking in 2004 after being inspired by a record-setting rally driver in Kenya. What began as a hobby soon escalated into an active publicity pursuit. Today, he promotes the work of social and environmental causes. For these purposes, the most fitting game plans are chosen; then world titles are attempted and frequently created.

How To Be A Successful Record Breaker

Your Opinion?

There seem to be plenty of folk who really want to know this, because I keep getting asked. I could write a compact step-by-step booklet with plenty of visuals, that would include:

  • Secrets which took me to #2 worldwide during the previous decade
  • Brainstorming, finding the right team, and gathering media interest
  • Tips to get active support from people who wouldn't otherwise get involved
  • Fast clever ways to analyse the benefits associated with potential records
  • Optimal balances between fun and commitment, useful milestone indicators and more...

The booklet would be download-able for a small payment.

Filmmakers' saying

You can have it cheap, fast or good. Pick two...
– It can be cheap and fast, but it won't be good.
– It can be cheap and good, but it won't be fast.

What people say about Alastair...

Alastair Galpin is crazy about conservation, crazy about world records and crazy enough to do (almost) anything – this is a unique way to support your environmental cause.

Joe Fagan, GOOT: Get Out Of Town /

Alastair cares about people, and the energy he puts into raising awareness of deprivation and injustice is admired. The Great Global Pokie Drop record-breaking stunt (four pokies/slots dropped from over 1000 ft from a helicopter into a rubbish tip), was a great global success.
