PADI Region Manager Asia Pacific, Johnny Chew, giving the award to Downbelow Directors Richard & Joanne Swann

Downbelow received an award from PADI Asia Pacific today for “Recognition Of Outstanding Contribution To Instructor Development”.

Downbelow’s Managing Director Richard Swann (PADI CD) and Marketing Director Joanne Swann (PADI MI), were delighted when Johnny Chew (PADI AP Regional Manager) dropped in to our KK Times Square head offices in Kota Kinabalu to present the surprise award.

Johnny also took the opportunity to visit our current IDC & IDC Staff candidates in the classroom, and have a stroll around our dive shop, freely sharing his wealth of knowledge and advice.

Thanks must go to our entire Go Pro Team and staff, especially the amazing support from our head office who do such a great job providing information to prospective candidates.

We would also like to thank PADI Asia Pacific without whose support in our region, Instructor Development would not be possible.
