I started in the outdoor pursuits industry because I can see the potential that it has to make a positive difference to those we work with.

My hope is that by providing instructors with additional tools and resources they need they will be better equipped to unlock the potential of others and inspire them to do even more!

This is why Instructor 101 exists today! So that you can make an even BIGGER impact on those you work with.

Please share, practise and enjoy what you have learnt.
Keep Inspiring and continue to develop as an instructor.
