A New Paraclimbing Centre Project for Suzi Rees

Was speaking with Suzi Rees from Deaf Climbing UK the last night and she told me of her latest project.

It's no secret that I think Suzie is amazing. As someone who spent 15 years at the sharp end of business and entrepreneurship as a Founder and Managing Director of private companies, I understand about the level of motivation and energy it takes to see through a new business idea or project. But that's something that most can find in themselves, but it's having the bravery to commit to action is what makes the entrepreneur... Combined with a true belief on an unshakable scale.

Suzi's ventures are Social Enterprise models, where it all goes back into programming to help others. And that is what I like about Suzi...(well that and her lats!)

As the current GB Paraclimbing Team Coach I am very excited to help and be part of this amazing concept and can't wait to watch the whirlwind do her stuff in pulling this fantastic idea off a page into the reality of a new climbing centre.

Coaching Paraclimbing within a specialist environment such as this will just help drive GB Paraclimbing forward in both athlete's performance and increase awareness of the benefits both physical and mental to one's well being from adventure sports such as rock climbing.

Referrals from clients:

"...This training season I decided to get all the help I can to speed up my improvement. I needed guidance to work towards my goals in long term. I also needed more vision and opinions about my exercises and weak links. I am glad I can share my training with Mark..." (Ville Mustonen, Finland)

" I met Mark in Glen Nevis on his return to climbing to check out some lines he had in mind for me, I wasn't really training at this point but after a day or two talking and training with him I had a much more structured idea of what to do to improve and I did" (Kev Shields)
