I am a creative, innovative, and enthusiastic trainer with a broad range of experience and skills.  I design and deliver a wide range of team building, motivational management and self development programmes and courses which are stimulating, enjoyable and memorable.

Most of my work is centred on the experiential learning model and therefore my programmes are very participative and can include both indoor and outdoor activities.  The courses focus on personal learning and relating the learning experiences to real life and the work environment. They al contain a highly creative content.

I have worked with people from varied backgrounds and ages:

In the private sector from apprentices through to managing directors.

In the public and voluntary sector from children on Sure Start via school pupils, students, young offenders, graduates in the MOD and supervisors and managers in Government Departments

I also offer mountain navigation courses and guided walks where I share my knowledge of the local area (the geology, natural history and history) of North West Wales.

I divide my time between training and my artistic activities.  I have an office and workshop at Parc Glynllifon from where I also pursue slate sculpture, artwork and some musical work.
