I had the unexpected pleasure of meeting and listening to Mark Ormrod talk this morning during a breakfast business networking meeting at Woodbury Park near Exeter.
Frequently one is left with little other than the aftertaste of poor coffee following such meetings, this one was a massive exception.
Mark spoke at length about his life experiences, it was captivating and inspiring. Further to that he spoke of the work of the Royal Marines Association (RMA), I would urge you to visit Mark’s personal website and that of the RMA.
I suspect few of us can fail to have been moved by Mark’s at time jaw-dropping sense of humour, whilst at the same time I imagine we have all been deeply educated and informed.
The injuries I sustained in Afghanistan changed my life…… but they do not define it….. The skills and qualities that I have learnt in the military are what got me to where I am today. I hope to use the knowledge and experience I have gained since that fateful day to continue down the path I am on, continue to learn, grow, improve and keep setting and reaching my goals.
