Outdoor Instructor

Saint Georges House

St. Georges House is a Christian Outdoor Centre in North Devon catering for schools and youth groups.  I instructed many activities including surfing, climbing, kayaking etc. This was very enjoyable and challenging and taught me to step up and lead many sessions. It was crucial that we worked together as a staff team and brought a positive attitude with us to work to give guests the best time possible. I believe that a positive attitude in any work place is important.

After enjoying a leaders role in America I decided to take on a distance learning course which I am currently half way through and expect to complete mid december. The topics I have completed are about innovation and people management. I find it very interesting to read theories on employees such as motivation and work ethic whilst witnessing it in practice.
