Simon was born in Lancashire where, as a member of the Scout Movement, he spent many long and happy formative hours, camping and exploring the moors and hills. These experiences were the foundation of an abiding passion for the outdoors that runs through his life.
Simon continues to support the Scout Movement, with over 20 years adult service as a volunteer Leader. In this capacity, Simon has enjoyed various roles, including acting as County Nights Away Advisor, Manager of the Activity Permit Scheme and District Commissioner, providing training, assessment and mentoring for in excess of 800 adults and countless Young people across East Lancashire.
His work with a wide range of client types has allowed him to develop an approach, which, whilst ensuring the right degree of challenge is met, supports delegates through the initial experience and onwards into the learning and transfer aspects of the training. His varied background, in both public and private sectors, brings with it a wealth of knowledge and broader understanding of a number of industries and business departments.
Simon’s organised and thoughtful approach to learning and development is reflected in his approachable style. He prides himself on being a people person and as such is able to unlock the potential in everyone. His areas of specialisation are varied and include team development and leadership, archery, air rifles and bushcraft.
Simon has hand-picked a team of trained, experienced, enthusiastic and certificated specialists to assist in running the various activities and events available at Wood Sage to ensure a professional and seamless experience.
