Bold Horizons was established in 2015 in response to demand for navigation coaching as well as orienteering events. It is owned and managed by Barbara Hill. Whilst Barbara is available for coaching, event management and consultation, we can also draw upon a wide range of skills and resources to meet your needs. At Bold Horizons, we love the outdoors and our ambition is to empower our clients to get out and enjoy it too.
We are committed to using technology to provide the best possible experience and learning environment. SportIdent technology is used for timing, we have invested in live GPS tracking and we are always on the hunt for more efficient, more user friendly and helpful technology.
Barbara consults to Orienteering NSW and Orienteering Australia on navigation coaching. She has also previously served as a Board member of Orienteering NSW and is very involved with her local orienteering club. Barbara has extensive experience in orienteering event conduct and coaching and is both an accredited orienteering course controller and coach. The fundamentals of planning and risk management were ingrained early in Barbara’s career with degrees in economics and planning as well as experience in credit and risk management in corporate finance.
A passion for the outdoors and sport runs deep in Barbara and she enjoys a wide variety of sports. These include orienteering and triathlon (representing Australia in both disciplines). Barbara may however also be found on a bike, trail running, swimming, skiing or anything outdoors and active really. More recently Barbara has acquired Certificates III and IV in personal training.
