Paul Trudeau’s leadership style is defined by a genuine desire for
all trip participants to enjoy themselves and share in his passion for
alpine sport. He is always keen to share his infectious enthusiasm with
section members at all levels of experience, inspiring them to increase
their involvement in the club. Paul has brought his background in rock
climbing and love of the outdoors to the Edmonton Section and has
embraced the alpine opportunities offered in our region, advancing his
skills and technique in ice climbing, mountaineering, and ski
touring/mountaineering to a point where he has become a respected trip
leader across a wide range of disciplines. Paul is a past TNF (summer)
participant and GMC amateur leader.
Paul maintains a distinct
focus on risk management and participant enjoyment, effectively
balancing humour, constructive criticism, and clear, direct
communication, to effectively coach members, convey a decision-making
process, and maximize safety on section trips.
Paul Trudeau was awarded the Eric Brooks Leader Award in 2016.
