Take 5 With Pinnacle – Sam

If you’ve ever wondered what makes a Pinnacle Team Events facilitator tick then you have come to the right place! Each month we will be taking 5 minutes to chat with each of our facilitators about their lives both inside and outside of work.
Pinnacle team events facilitator Sam Welbourne
What I love about being a Pinnacle Facilitator:
I love how the job is basically to have fun. If you’re having fun, so are the delegates and you get to meet interesting people too.
My favourite Pinnacle team event to facilitate:
So far it would have to be the Casino Night, the delegates really have a good time gambling with fake money.
Most embarrassing moment as a Pinnacle facilitator:
Nothing so far, I’m sure one can’t be too far away.
My favourite hobbies are:
Playing or watching any kind of sport.

I’m listening to Drake and the Hamish and Andy podcast pretty religiously at the moment.
What was the last book you read?:
I re-read my favourite book as a teenager, “Hovercar Racer”.

Have you ever had a nickname?:
Plenty, but Sammy and Welbie are the most common.
I am frightened by _____ :
Bears, the one dangerous animal we don’t have in Australia.
Favourite movie of all time:

Bombay Bicycle Club.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?:
Newcastle/ Hunter Valley are about as good as it gets I reckon.

What makes you laugh the most:
Fart jokes probably, just can’t help myself
