"I am preparing to take my Mountain Leader’s course. So I approached Steve at SPR Expeditions to ask if he could be of any help, not expecting the level of knowledge, time & expertise that I received. In fact Steve produced a tailored 2 day training course of excellent content & coaching, delivered in his quiet, professional and fun manner. An excellent 2 days which has put me in good stead for my course later on in the year – thank you Steve."
