S1 E5: This I have learnt—The Soldier, Colonel Donald Pudney

What can life under fire teach you about setting priorities and leading others?

Quite a lot it seems. It has helped Colonel Donald lead a successful and stimulating life. 

Some may have a successful career in the military, others in the public sector or many more in a business career. There are a rare few,  such as our guest Colonel Donald Pudney, who have excelled in all three. 

He has lived in war zones for extended periods, been head of a civil service, and a director of several prominent organisations.

A full life indeed and yet, comfortably into his late 80’s, his appetite for life is undiminished and his curiosity about the world is still running at full tilt. The camera only hints at the zest he possesses.

He is a successful survivor. He has useful lessons to share.

I hope you enjoy the conversation.
