Many of my Linked In connections have heard about The Global Mobile Leaders Summit I'm hosting in Whistler BC Canada in Jan 10-13, 2016 with the Mobile Growth Fellowship (http://www.totalheliski.com/global-mobile-leaders-heliski-summit/) because I've emailed many of you. It's been such an exciting few weeks watching initial momentum build as incredible people have registered for the invite, commented on social media, shared proactively on their walls, and pinged me back with virtual fist pumps from their words.
I enjoyed my visit to the Total Heliski London Show 2011 even more than I was expecting. Why? Because I came away having won a 3 day heliski holiday with Snowwater in Canada!
Even though I’d heliskied before I was very apprehensive as I’d heard that Total Heliski was for “hard core” skiers whose aim was to cover the maximum number of vertical meters during their stay. Being fifty-seven (and three quarters), a little older than the average Total Heliski customer, I realised I had to get into serious training. I took my 22 year old daughter Katie – at least that brought our average age down a bit!
I have written a number of blog posts about my passion for heli skiing and my experiences during my trips. And whenever I speak to people, especially the ones new to heli skiing, I speak to them about what it is like for me to experience the fresh powder when I ski. During one such conversation I said to myself “Hang on a minute. What they really need, is to hear from someone who they don’t consider an expert. They need to hear from someone, who until recently was just as new to heli skiing as they are!”
This got me thinking and I decided to get the thoughts of my client, and friend, Mike who had recently gone on a Total Heliski trip.
