Talks

S Georgia Penguin

Schools: I can deliver interactive workshops and provide follow-up educational resources for schools and colleges, having taught in both the classroom and the outdoor/environmental context for over twenty years. The resources cover a range of aspects of polar life, eg.Polar bears Vs penguins; The Antarctic Treaty and environmental issues; PSHE issues eg. self belief; teamwork

Events: I have given a range of illustrative presentations for a variety of corporate training events, national event audiences, and local groups eg. Association of Heads of Outdoor Centres (AHOEC), Independent Schools Adventure Activities Association (ISAAA), The Royal Geographical Society Explore event, NEC Outdoor Show, NEC Ski & snowboard show, University and College groups, Rotary Clubs, WI.
