“Congratulations all of you for completing your Gold Award. I hope you’ve gained a love of exploration through doing your DofE. People ask me why I got into adventure. I tell them that it didn’t start when I was in the marines; it wasn’t when I was living with tribes in Papua New Guinea or trekking through Borneo; it was when I was twelve in the cadets, doing similar activities that you have done through your DofE, learning how to work as a team and gaining skills like determination and resilience. Remember that the world is your oyster and whatever you want to do in your life, you just have to grab it and do it.”

“I see potential in this room full of Gold Award holders. Realising that potential is less about doing and more about being; and there are three things you really ought to be. Firstly, be proud.

Don’t be the person others expect you to be. You’ve put your heart and soul into gaining this Award and will have discovered new things about who you are, so be true to yourself. Thirdly, be brave. You didn’t achieve your Gold without taking some risks. Keep broadening your horizons and be brave enough to take more risks.”
