On this week’s episode, Penny Thomas and Megan French chat with Perth businessman Jeff Robson about his new book, The Traveling Trainer.

Throughout the show, we hear about Jeff’s passion for rock climbing, how he turned his love for travelling into a career and why he decided to publish a book about it.

Jeff also tells us about the far-flung destinations he’s visited because of his career, including places like Islamabad in Pakistan, Tehran in Iran and Angola in Africa — just to name a few.

Discussing the new book, Jeff says it is packed full of practical tips and a must read for anyone who has ever thought about working as a professional trainer.

“This book aims to inspire professionals to think about how you can teach your skills overseas,” he says.

“Then — once you begin leveraging your professional qualifications to train others who maybe based near exotic locations — it is an opportunity to travel more broadly.

“I want to encourage people to step away from the glossy marketing of the global travel industry train, with its luxury hotels, pools and bright cocktails. Some of the most memorable and enjoyable times I’ve had have been in remote locations, far from the well-known hotels and package tours.”
