Jake has worked for me a substantial amount over the last few years. This has included work in winter and summer. He has always operated with the highest level of professional integrity and feedback from clients has been universally fantastic. He is a talented instructor and is always keen to develop his practice in any ways possible. I will continue to employ him for a variety of instructional work and fully support his professional development. From all that I have seen he has prepared extremely well for his upcoming MIC Assessment and I wish him every success.
I have known Jake for some time after first meeting whilst both working for an Expedition Company. We have climbed indoors, on rock and in winter together and he has always been a great partner to climb with. Jake has worked for me on a number of occasions coaching rock climbing to my long term clients. Both they and I were very pleased with what they learnt on those weekends. Jake is a very competent and professional instructor with great technical and people skills. He has worked on a number of SPA course with different providers. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a MT Course Director.
Jake is an exceptional instructor - he cares about all aspects of the delivery of programmes, being highly knowledgeable on technical aspects and brilliant at the interpersonal and communication skills to get the skills across effectively. He delivers fun, personal and inspiring skills coaching and technical courses and his passion for the outdoors is apparent throughout. As an expedition leader Jake has a relaxed but professional manner, focused on the needs and feelings of his clients because the challenges of the environment are well within his capabilities to manage. Jake has travelled extensively all over the world for mountaineering expeditions and will no doubt make an inspirational international mountain leader.
