We established our own guided walks business in Northumberland in 2011. We are Footsteps in Northumberland and it is fair to say that the Hill and Moorland Leader (HML) Award underpins our day to day activities as we lead guided walks here in Northumberland and in other parts of the UK too. The Award has given confidence to people who employ me and the freelance work I do on a business to business basis, has certainly increased since we began in 2011. In addition, I deliver the Mountain Training Hill Skills courses, again without the HML Award, it would have been a business opportunity closed to us. So my recommendation is, get a Mountain Training Award, it is a passport to new places and business. As I look ahead now to perhaps gaining the Mountain Leader (Summer) Award and knowing that if I can follow the same path, this too will support and be a key part of the business that we have worked hard to establish.
