On 9th December, BASS Morzine hosted the first LEAD Conference for professional Snowsport Instructors as a chance for them to LEARN, EXPLORE, ASPIRE & DEVELOP.
The day was attended by 30 career professionals, from Morzine, Avoriaz, Chamonix, Megeve and as far away as Verbier and Val d’Isere.
They came together to hear short, insightful and inspiring, thought provoking presentations from recognised industry experts.
I presented 2 x 20 minutes presentations.
The first was in my capacity as one of the Senior Trainers and elected Trainers Director. At previous Trainers Conferences I have presented a perspective on our core philosophies to help deepen the Trainers understanding of some of our founding principles. This was the opportunity to re-work the topic with a member focus and present it to the membership.
For my second presentation I changed my metaphorical hat in order to deliver a talk on “Interski”. I have been a member of the Great Britain Interski Demo Team for 8 years and have recently been appointed as the Team Coach for the next cycle. The LEAD Conference gave a great opportunity to inform the membership of the importance of previous Interski Congresses in BASI’s history and provide an insight into what the Demo Team is doing now and how planning for the 2019 event is progressing.
Much positive feedback has been received:
“Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed the afternoon. It made me think about the topics covered in a different way and was inspiring to explore more, it was also great to catch up with everybody.”
“Pass all the best for a great day to your team, especially yourself and Becs, very well presented, very professional, I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
“What a superb day on Friday! I thoroughly enjoyed the presentations which were extremely thought provoking and informative. Thank you!”
