Presenter – Derek Redmond, Presenter

“Congratulations to you all for achieving your Gold Awards. You have now set the benchmark for which to pursue your future goals. I’m a big believer that if you start something, you should finish it to the best of your ability. It’s not what you do; it’s how you go about doing it. Through sheer tenacity and perseverance you all have been able to achieve something great. All the months of hard work have paid off and now it is your turn to inspire others. You are examples to the next generation of DofE participants; those who are thinking of starting their programme, those who have achieved their Silver and are thinking of progressing on to Gold.”

Presenter – Ray Mears, Outdoor Instructor

“Your Gold Award is a personal journey, you’ve learnt so much about yourselves. Today, you’ve all succeeded and created the most amazing foundations for your future lives. A Gold DofE Award is a tick in the box for your career – what you do with it is your challenge now. We need you, you will shape our futures as well as your own.”

Presenter – Tony Willis, Ex Paralympian/Associate Head Teacher – The Windsor Boys’ School

“The values and characteristics that the DofE allows young people to develop are of huge benefit, both whilst they are taking part and on into later life. The qualities of persistence, resilience, commitment, determination and the ability to rise to meet a challenge, amongst others the scheme promotes, resonate very loudly with both Admissions tutors at University and prospective employers as much as the standard educational qualifications, or perhaps even more so. But the longer term, life enhancement they also bring is immeasurable”.

Presenter – Colonel Paul Edwards, Assistant Chief of Staff ACF

“In order to be here today, you will have embarked on a journey of self-discovery, showing great determination and commitment to achieve your Gold DofE Awards. I am a firm believer that if we risk nothing, we achieve nothing. The skills you have learnt through your programme will shape your future. What you must decide now is which metaphorical mountain you climb – persevere – with determination, you will get there in the end.”

“Very many congratulations. I know exactly what you’ve been through, it’s a very proud achievement so well done. You’ve developed yourself, skills for your future. Going forward I’d say put in more than you take out. Good luck on your journey, whatever direction you take. As I know, you don’t have to play the cards you’re dealt with, you’re in control of your lives.”
