Inspired by the spirit of Horatio Nelson, we support, encourage and develop the leaders of today and the leaders of tomorrow
"If we have the confidence and courage to find it, and then release it, we too can fulfil our potential in life, and our community will be the richer for it. In fact it is our duty to find Nelsonspirit, and release it, and to inspire the next generation to do so too."
Nigel Cushion, Founder of Nelsonspirit
