Scott Stephen: "Great Teamwork is Key"
Scott is a former soldier, operating as a sniper and a signaller, and specialising in mountain warfare while serving with British special forces on deployments around the world. Since leaving the military he has worked within the retail sector in various positions as well as the private security industry.
Scott's experience is ideal in development of high functioning teams. On the 'tame' end of the spectrum he is available for typical team building days and on the 'wild' end he can create events to suit your team in the wilderness. These adventures from one to ten days will challenge and reward your team.
Passionate about the outdoors, he has taken part in several multi-sport and endurance events such as the Coast to Coast and the Bedrock 50 ultra marathon. He is a volunteer member of the Alpine and Cliff Rescue team as a team leader and medic, as well as teaching navigation for the NZ alpine club. Scott also uses the skills and knowledge he has learned through the military and experience from sporting and outdoor endeavors to educate, encourage and guide others through training to achieve their goals safely and successfully whatever they may be.
