As human beings it is in our nature to be afraid from birth and have primal fears; of being alone and the fear of failure most obviously. It is fear that limits life's possibilities both professionally and personally. My parents taught me at a very young age to embrace life's failures, have a strong work ethic, learn lessons from knock backs and continue with a positive attitude in order to overcome any tasks life throws at you. I always took the mindset that as i have little there is really nothing to lose in having a go, try new experiences and ultimately anything is possible if you don’t quit. This mindset has helped me become the first in my family with an honours degree in business, have growing success in international business and become Lord Ravensden. I aim to be a further example to my family with age and give back to society where and when possible.

John Charles Leofric Ellis-Mitchell
Lord of Wrenford
I have had a very full and very varied life. My career started in the field of psychiatry and then, as a complete change, in catering. Moving to Kent I was very fortunate to become the Town Seargent of Dover which involved maintaining the town's Civic Regalia, the Ceremonial Oar of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports and officiating at the civic ceremonies. After retiring I took on the challenge of refurbishing some derelict properties whilst also continuing to assist friends by being their company secretary for some seafront buildings which were going under refurbishment. I am very pleased to look back on many satisfying years and can now concentrate on my local social scene. I maintain a gathering for St Georges Day, for Trafalgar Day and our town's Charter Day.

13th Lord of Hemseys
I have been through many setbacks and adversities in my lifetime. These helped mould me into the positive, resilient, unbreakable person I am today.
I spent many years leaving life to happen to me, until I began studying mindset and then I made the decision to take the reins of my own life and decide what happens in my life.
I have since become an international fully accredited mindset coach, I have studied psychology, mental health and hypnosis to help others take control of their lives.
My mission is life is to help as many people realise that we are only ever dealing with a thought and a thought can be changed. By changing the way we think we then become the creators of our own lives.
Helping others understand that we are only ever dealing with a thought and a thought can always be changed. My passion is mindset, neurolinguistic programming, personal development and continuous growth.

Lord of Esthorpe
The Judeo-Christian ethics taught to me as a child together with gems of wisdom from my part Native American father have inspired me to esteem the values of humility, selflessness and service, respect for nature, patience, gratitude and respect for elders. I have endeavoured to be guided by these values in my life. Service to others gives me great satisfaction and led me to work with the UN, Governmental and Non Governmental agencies to provide aid to least developed countries and developing small island states around the world.
My area of expertise is in severe weather forecasting, natural disaster planning and mitigation and emergency communications. As such I have been part of a team educating countries as to their natural disaster risks and providing guidance on lessening this risk and protecting life and property. I have been involved with strengthening warning systems for tropical cyclones, typhoons, tornadoes, tsunamis, flooding and volcanic ash. This has required installing high speed communication systems into remote communities as diverse as a small Sahara Desert village, remote tropical atoll villages, and tropical rain forest villages.
As these communication systems have downtime between the broadcast of natural disaster forecasts and warnings we have partnered with other agencies who are able to use the systems without cost during free periods to broadcast education, health and agricultural information to help with the development of these remote communities and improve their standard of living.
In the Pacific Islands I have been a first responder in times of natural disasters. Flying in with a relief team to provide assistance and help to restore essential services. Although retired now I still offer my advice if required and donate to aid agencies working with remote communities mainly in the Pacific Islands.
