Afternoon Presentation

Throne Room – Northern Ireland

Presenter – Leon McCarron, Adventurer, Cameraman and Silver Award Holder

Leon told the Gold Award holders: “The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a platform to bring ideas together and to develop skills. It introduced me to adventure and the outdoors and I went on to do that as a career so I have a lot to thank it for. I think challenge is such an important part of life, it is very easy to get very comfortable and not to challenge ourselves in life but it is only through challenging ourselves that we grow and progress and develop.”
