The final 5 years of his military career were spent at the British Army Training Unit Suffield, in Alberta, as one of the most experienced officers on the permanent training team. He was critical to the design, planning and execution of outstanding training exercises that tested the delivery of operational effect from the training audience.

Jamie coached and mentored military leaders from the UK, Canada and the US to an exceptional standard, using personal experience, data analysis and thorough knowledge of policy. Furthermore, he improved training evaluation tools, by analysing lessons from training, redesigning procedures in line with best practice and then implementing the technical solutions through liaison with external contractors. 

Outside of emergency management work, Jamie is a hiking guide; a skiing and climbing instructor; and an avid mountaineer who is working towards his mountain guiding qualifications under the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides.
