What Our Clients Say

We have engaged Danny for 4 consecutive events over the last 2 years helping to develop our apprentices. Danny is able to provide a wide range of services through various indoor and outdoor based activities. He is clear in what is expected and is able to offer ideas and suggestions to help develop and shape programmes to meet the business needs. He has a calm, collected approach and is able to encourage and obtain feedback and analysis from participants that can be of further use either at the time or for a point in future. It’s great that he has been able to support our last 4 events offering continuity and familiarity to existing apprentices over the last 2 years. We will definitely look to continue to engage Danny going forwards.

Jeff Newman - Project Manager, Exyte Hargreaves

Danny is hugely passionate and experienced in what he does, and this is evident throughout the running of each session. I would highly recommend, and we will most certainly be using Danny again in the future

Samantha, Learning & Development Manager Exyte Hargreaves

After meeting Danny on an expedition to a 6000m peak I quickly learnt that Danny has a wealth of knowledge in the outdoors some of which only comes with spending a lot of your time in the mountains. I learned so much off Danny in the two weeks we spent together on that mountain. From looking after myself and my kit in an outdoor environment to navigation and navigation at night. I also mentioned learning to climb. On my return Danny took me and two close friends on an introduction to climbing, all three of us came away fully confident with the vast amount we learnt that weekend and are now going out together taking it in turns to lead and confidently putting everything in to practice. The weekend we spent with Danny on that introduction to climbing has opened so many opportunities in terms of our confidence in climbing, we are all now doing routes we would never have had the confidence to climb prior to this. I can wholeheartedly recommend Danny as an out instructor in all areas.

Mark S

I found Danny to be a genuinely nice guy with great patience and very helpful and informative and I would highly recommend him to anybody. I intend to use Danny in the future to learn and progress in my climbing. Thanks to Danny I learned some invaluable skills and had one of the most memorable days I’ve ever had in the Lakes!

Brooke, Lake District Adventure

I have had the pleasure of working alongside Danny for 3 of our Apprentice team building events so far. These have proven to be a huge success with positive feedback received from our Apprentices who have participated. Danny has put together 3 great programmes which have been highly productive and engaging throughout.

Samantha Sadler - Exyte Hargreaves

Dan has worked with us at Wilmslow High School for a number of years now with our DofE expeditions. Always a complete professional, his empathy with young people and adults alike stands out. Superb technical skills and a warm personality, he helps create a team out of a disparate group of young people. Inspirational, unflappable and approachable, I can’t recommend him highly enough
