Testimonials

Thank you to all my clients - here's a selecton of feedback

"A truly unforgettable experience; professional, fascinating and truly enjoyable. Heather provided a superb lowland leader training and assessment course which has not only rekindled my own love of the outdoors but also given me the confidence to establish a DofE offering within my school. I highly recommend Heather for her professional approach and warm, friendly coaching style." Andy Clarkson - Teacher and DofE Manager at King's Academy Binfield.

I had a fabulous time completing my Lowland Leader Training and Assessment. Heather created an informative and supportive environment that encouraged everyone on the course to learn a huge amount and feel confident to lead groups outdoors. I would highly recommend Wild Heather for Lowland Leader Training and Assessment, Navigational workshops and NNAS Courses. I will certainly be booking again in the future.  Lou - Lowland Leader - September 2021

I did my LL training with another provider and found Heather closer to where I live for my assessment. I was feeling anxious the day before assessment as I was not sure what to expect. The moment I met Heather she made me feel relaxed. I felt calm and relaxed throughout the assessment and because of this I remembered a lot of things. She is friendly, inspiring, funny, an excellent assessor and an all round lovely person. I would definitely book another course and assessment with her. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Marguerita - Lowland Leader - June 2021

Heather's Lowland Leader course was great fun and packed with information. She ensured that the syllabus was covered and made learning easy with lots of practical examples and reinforcement. I now feel far more confident navigating and leading groups. Thank you Heather!  Hayley - Lowland Leader - May 2021

Going into the course, and especially the assessment days, I have to say I was a little nervious, but straight from the start Heather's friendly and relaxed approach put me at ease.  Her course was very information, well organised and thoroughly enjoyable.  Heather's infectious love of nature and passion for caring for the outdoors was an inspiration.  Dave - Lowland Leader training and assessment - May 2021

The best thing that has happened to me this year is finding Heather.  A wonderful teacher, provider and mentor, I have learnt so much.  My knowledge of navigation and the great outdoors has grown tremendously as well as my leadership skills and confidence.  Highly recommended.
Sharon - Silver NNAS, Lowland Leader award - April 2021

Lowland Leader training and assessment with Heather was an immensely exciting learning experience. The whole process from initial contact to final delivery is professional, yet Heather has the gift of making one feel at ease and special thus making the experience fun and educational. Completing the whole package with Heather left me well informed and confident in leading, navigational and outdoor skills and knowledge. Thank you for sharing your years of experience and knowledge with us.  I would definitely recommend Heather to anyone looking for the Lowland Leader award and Navigation training.
Abdul - Lowland Leader - October 2020

Heather was really flexible with her dates when I booked my training and assessment for my two courses. The communication before, during and after the courses was faultless which is a real credit to Heather and the way she runs her business. The location choices were really suitable for all those on the course and offered the right level of challenge, Heather made sure we all experience walking in woods and open land to hone our skills. I would highly recommend Heather for the courses she offers as my experience was great.
Alex – DofE Leader in a school – August 2020

I really appreciated your flexibility and patience when we were booking our courses - it made us feel very valued.  I have just placed an order for that book (Hill Walking, Mountain Training Handbook), and have done some research towards further qualifications. I think it’s safe to say that I’ve been bitten by the outdoors bug! Lowland Leader training and assessment.  A and J both DofE leaders in school - August 2020

I have attended several of Heather’s courses and thoroughly enjoyed them all.   Heather immediately makes you feel relaxed and safe and ensure that all learning points are covered in an efficient but friendly way.    Her walks are filled with interesting information and anecdotes and cater appropriately to the interests and abilities of the group.   I cannot recommend Heather highly enough. - CB August 2020

I wanted to say thank you for the great course. It was a pleasure to get to know you and learn from you. I think you choose the location very well. It is convenient for folks travelling from London but the place is actually nice to walk. I think it is important to include woodlands and nice open spaces into the navigation lessons.  Lowland Leader training - Igor July 2020

“I spent a day with Heather on the NNAS Tutor Award; Heather offers a personalised approach to learning and takes the time to understand the experience that you bring to the course and uses that over the day.  The delivery style was very relaxed and paced appropriately to the aims and the experience of the group.  I came out of the course not only feeling confident to run a Bronze NNAS course but also more knowledgeable about other aspects of working with groups in the outdoors!” WP July 2020

Thank you for the course last week, I found it very informative.  It has finally inspired me after 4 years to set up a small venture, providing both walking and canoeing trips and training courses.  Hopefully we'll bump into each other in our lovely Chiltern hills.  RD - NNAS tutor award.  June 2020
