Every Monday we will invite an inspiring speaker to come and talk to us for 15-20 minutes.
Our speaker this Monday:
This is an honest account of how you leave a safe working environment behind with the security of a pension and salary to step into literally the unknown. Mark talks about a combination of experiences from expeditions in the extremes of the planet combined with formulating a business around a passion.
