I am the founder and director of Nature’s Work, one of the UK’s leading outdoor education and training consultancies.

Based in North Wales, I have over twenty years’ experience working in field studies, ecology and the outdoor industry. My innovative outdoor learning programmes benefit both teachers and pupils from primary and secondary schools, using nature to engage and inspire students with wider learning goals. I also train the outdoor industry on ecology, the environment and sustainability issues.

I hold an MSC in Conservation and Land Management from University of Wales, Bangor and am a qualified Winter Mountain Leader and have led expeditions all over the world. I'm currently writing a book on alpine botany and regularly contribute to the Professional Mountaineer and Horizons, the flagship publication of the Institute for Outdoor Learning.

I have known Jim as a friend for over 15 years in which time I have trained and assessed him for his Single Pitch and Summer Mountain Leader awards. Jim is a first class instructor, working technically at a high standard. He has a huge passion for the outdoors and the environment and is it obvious that he is keen to share this with the people he meets and works with. Jim is a confident, enthusiastic and energetic teacher / leader in the outdoors. He is very good with people, and communicates well. I wish him all the best! Phill George IFMGA / MIC
