Helping people to grow and develop has been central to his passion for instructing and is the thread that runs through his career.  Along side his outdoor career he served with the Army Reserve in the UK and overseas and commanded the Recruit Training Team for the SW.  He holds the MIA, is a certified coach and member of the Chartered Management Institute.

Just some of the amazing feedback we have received...

"We climbed with Gavin for a stag do last year, and everyone enjoyed it so much we had to come back for more! Had an absolutely brilliant day out at the Dewerstone, once again it was fantastically organised, we had a real mix of abilities, but everyone felt safe, had a great time, and agreed it was the highlight of our holiday.

 

Thanks again, can't wait until the next rock climbing adventure in Dartmoor!"

Chris, Eastbourne

"Just undertaken a basic Navigation Course with Gavin. His calm but methodical approach set the pace for a relaxed but informative trek. I was able to take in a great deal of learning from this. His approach in helping me achieve my goal ps was first class.
 

Would recommend Gavin and Ibex to any potential candidate that requires a informative but professional approach that's easy going and fun."

Gareth, Devon

"I recently completed both the Lowland Leader Training and Assessment with Gavin from Ibex Outdoor, and passed!
The initial course back in Sept was both informative and thorough and gave me the confidence to go away and consolidate ready for assessment in Feb.

I would thoroughly recommend Gavin and Ibex Outdoor for training and am planning on further courses with them in the future."
