Jesse Dufton, the first blind climber to lead climb the 449ft pinnacle of rock ‘Old Man of Hoy’, talks about his career and how his climber’s perspective has helped him achieve his goals.
Registrations will close at 4 pm on 16 July.
Join us in conversation with Jesse Dufton from 5 – 6 pm on Thursday 16 July.
Jesse recently starred in the film Climbing Blind. Directed and produced by filmmaker Alastair Lee, this award-winning documentary shows Jesse’s epic ascent of the Old Man of Hoy. The film is still available on iPlayer and there is also an audio described version.
When Jesse is not climbing (or training for climbing) he is working as a Patent Engineer for Intelligent Energy.
Martin Sigsworth, TPT’s Senior Employment Manager, will be in conversation with Jesse to understand his career journey, what challenges and obstacles he has had to overcome and what advice he has for blind and partially sighted people looking to get on or progress their careers.
Once your place is booked you will be sent joining instructions for the session. Registrations will close at 4 pm on 16 July.
