Meet The Team

Iain Tindall

The Gaffer. IRATA Assessor A/3/4451/i

After a background in farming, forestry, theatre rigging, teaching and fire eating in a circus, I started out in Rope Access. Since 1998 I’ve worked onshore and offshore in Australia, Norway, Denmark, France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Morocco, Ivory Coast and even Wales before founding Belay in 2013. 

Outside work I used to be a scuba instructor, motorbike enthusiast, mountaineer and volunteer Coastguard Rescue officer. But then I had kids! Now I just play cricket.

I am passionate about high quality training to prepare delegates for the real world. I have seen, first hand, the results of complacency and poor safety training and Belay’s mission is to give our trainees the tools to keep themselves and their work mates safe. 

Ashley Blake

GWO and IRATA Instructor 3/57650

With experience of blade repair and general rope access going back over 10 years, I have a passion for passing on my knowledge and experience to others and learning from our trainees too.

John Bream

IRATA Instructor and Lead Daredevil IRATA 3/94993/i

I am the lead IRATA Instructor at Belay having started off as a Level 1 trainee here 7 years ago.  After 5 years of service in the Parachute Regiment I worked as a safety consultant in TV and film and as an arborist instructor before getting involved in IRATA Rope Access work and then training. 

Outside of work, my passion is spending time in the outdoors with my children and campaigning to bring attention to the issue of veteran suicide by undertaking incredible stunts. Most recently I achieved a world record for jumping 40m from a helicopter into the sea and the lowest parachute BASE jump.
