Boys to Men: Learning Today – Leading Tomorrow

Legacy is a lifetime

Mark Donaldson VC

In Caterson’s review of Donaldson’s book, Crossroads, he remarks that Donaldson considered himself a ‘feral teenager no-hoper with dreadlocks and an alcohol problem’. What turned him into the self-determined hero and committed SAS instructor is the story you will hear in his presentation Legacy is a lifetime, a story focussed on character, responsibility, adaptation and purpose.
