  Programme Facilitator

10009880 10152345134774083 175232346 nNathan (or Nate) has recently joined the Columba team from a career as an outdoor professional. He has been working both as an instructor and also equipping the next generation of instructors with practical and leadership skills since 2011. As a qualified White water coach, Mountain Leader and Rock climbing instructor (+ many more) his work has taken him to many locations and brought him into contact with many different people.

Nate started his working life after leaving school at 16 and has worked in many industries to a management level, this has given him a broad depth of knowledge about how leadership can be applied in many different contexts.

His passions are reflected in his work history, with development of people, relationships and adventure at the heart of what he does. He spends a lot of his spare time out on his own adventures in the hills and rivers that the UK has to offer, especially in the winter, and is normally joined by his wife (Lizzie) and dog (Olaf)!

Nate was attracted to Columba 1400 by the opportunities it presents for close interaction and development of people and also the depth of personal learning and development in himself.

He is an avid Arsenal supporter and Star Wars fan, and is passionately involved in making music whenever possible!
