Today the marvellous Hal Gilmore gave us a video testimonial for our website – have a look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gi4zOPq1Wiw&feature=channel&list=UL
Now there’s a great customer – our very first customer, and he keeps coming back! Many thanks for the kind words Hal, we also think you’re great – Here’s why.
Hal runs an exciting business called Transition Tours visit www.biggreencanoe.org
Transition Tours provides programmes of tours, education and personal development in the River Dart area for all kinds of lucky people, around the theme of transition. Offering three kinds of programmes - Transition Tours, Leadership for Resiliency and Source to Sea Exploration – Hal and the team really are offering something different and special. Sima and I work very much within the framework of transition in our food ethics, and it’s a real pleasure working for a business with such values at its centre.
Here’s a bit more about what Hal does taken from the website:
Tours inspire people by connecting them with practical, positive, solution-focussed ideas in practice. These make for effective and inspiring away-days and study trips. You can engage one of our tours as a one-off event, a break-out session for your conference or as part of a longer, broader and deeper personal development programme.
Great afternoon for us all. Even in the limited time we had, [your] infectious enthusiasm and intelligence ensured stimulating, thought provoking discussion and a visit to some great examples of positive action”
Transformational learning unlocks new thinking, inspires new ways of doing, and enables people to realise their potential. We don’t shy from navigating some tricky waters aboard the Big Green Canoe! We go places together and you can expect to be challenged and ask some big questions along the way. Together we make great discoveries and find ourselves in exciting new waters at the end of our time together. This makes for some powerful, team-based personal development with real world application.
I was feeling negative about things before, and now I see a new perspective and I am happy and excited.”
Student study-programmes engage a wide range of disciplines and interests by providing a real life case study of innovative ideas in practice. We shatter the lacuna between the theory and practice. Out of the classroom and aboard the Big Green Canoe learning is suddenly very real and relevant.
Sustainability is embodied throughout our operations so, while we are learning about ways to change the world, we are carry it out through our actions as well. What we learn is linked to how we live, and change becomes more possible.
