I’ve been an educator and trainer for more than 30 years and offer lifetime experience with a keen enthusiasm for keeping current with changing times. Specializing in corporate leadership and management training, my background in adventure tourism and outdoor recreation has enabled me to deliver curricula in the office or boardroom, on the water (via kayak and sailboat), as well as in the mountains (on skis or in a wilderness cabin).
Apart from running my own training business since 1984, I was training manager for Blackcomb Mountain at Whistler for four years, where I designed and delivered management and leadership training, as well as career-pathing for management. My award-winning training department staff oversaw the entire training of Blackcomb's permanent management and seasonal staff.
I also served 12 years in the Royal New Zealand Navy, five years as a Trainer for Xerox and five years as Training Manager for Richmond Savings Credit Union. I reside in Vancouver where I continue to be deeply involved in British Columbia's tourism and outdoor adventure travel industry.
Places Where I’ve Designed and Run Courses Include:
- Across Canada
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- The Solomon Islands
- The United States
