"I just wanted to jot you a note and thank you once again for the fantastic guiding experience that both Martin and you provided our team. The guys are still raving about it - with some describing the trip as being one of those "bucket list" experiences!! I know that we were all a bit sore on Thursday night, but after a great soak in the hot pools and a hot meal we were as happy as I've ever seen the team. I couldn't praise you and Martin more for the absolute professionalism and commitment you showed to our team. As I said in my speech at the end, we talk a lot about leadership at Sanitarium - and both you and Martin demonstrated what it means to be a true leader - in spades! I would have no hesitation to recommend this trip to other (fit) executive teams - and my personal view is that it is first rate team building exercise. Thanks again for a wonderful and safe trip, and for wonderful memories of the Mt Cook National Park, Ball Pass, and the Caroline Hut experience!"
