Legacy – To leave a legacy you must live a legacy with Neil Dorward

There is one thing in life that is just inevitable – we are all going to die.However, the thought of your death and the legacy you wish to leave behind can be a hugely motivating driver for business and life success. Making the most of everyday as though it were your last can help you to achieve exceptional results. Just google my former guest and friend Stephen Sutton MBE and what he achieved! I first came across Neil Dorward when I saw him deliver a very thought provoking speech to an engaged audience on legacy. As Scotland’s first ever Civil Funeral Celebrant he had been involved with leading over 2500 funeral services. He therefore has huge experience and integrity around the subject. So what do we want that service to say about our lives and how would we like to live on in the memories of others when it is our turn? Join us and listen to some very important and inspirational messages that may help you to lead a better and more fulfilled and elevated life today.
