WOW… WEMski 2018 really is shaping up to be one incredible event; not only have we snapped up Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards, but we’re excited to announce that WEMski will also be playing host to ex-Special Forces veteran Jason ‘Foxy’ Fox.
Recognised most widely for instructing civilians through the SAS selection process on the Channel 4 reality series SAS: Who Dares Wins, Jason’s illustrious career began when he was 16 years old. After enlisting in the Royal Marine Commandos, he then went on to pass the gruelling 6-month selection process to enter the Special Forces, where he spent the remainder of his time in the military as an SF operator for the Special Boat Service (SBS). During his time with the forces, he conducted numerous roles across real-time operations across the globe, ranging from Sergeant Team Leader, dog handler, demolitions expert and combat swimmer, to counter terrorist expert and bodyguard, before leaving in 2012.
Jason’s time is now split between being a TV and film consultant, and the charity he co-founded called Rock 2 Recovery, which helps armed forces personnel, veterans and their families in dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He also travels around the world as a keynote speaker, as well as running a company that provides Special Forces experiences to the corporate world.
This wealth of experience will be invaluable to those attending the WEMski event, to which Jason will be bringing his vast real-world knowledge. Delegates will learn about the physical and psychological challenges in extreme pressurised environments, building emotional resilience in the face of adversity, the virtues of strong leadership in hostile locations, plus much more.
We are very excited to have Jason on board this January, and we’re sure that those of you attending will learn more than you bargained for… though don’t fret, that won’t include discovering whether you can undergo the punishing Special Forces selection process.
You will, however, be part of a select gathering of people for a week of inspiration, networking, learning and a healthy dose of ski-therapy on the slopes!
If you are a non-skier there are lessons to be booked and a host of other pretty amazing facilities to keep you busy!
