What does Wales mean to our board?

28 Nov, 2017

To coincide with our online campaign #MyWales and the launch of our community/pioneer-sign up pages, the GlobalWelsh board share what Wales means to them.

Walter May: #myWales is caring, community oriented, welcoming and resilient. It is under-stated, self-effacing, authentic and classless. Humour is a core part of Welsh culture.

Chris Raybould: My relationship with where I come from underpins my DNA; honesty, humour, belief, passion, humble, fight for the underdog, no loud empty egos accepted and a winning attitude via hard work and fair play.

Nick Pearce-Tomenius: #myWales is passion, family, friends, laughter, cheekiness, adventure, beaches, talent, flair, camaraderie, inspiration, unique, hwyl and home

Dave Dean: #myWales is home, it’s family, friends, colleagues and a community rolled into one. It’s where my heart is... Where I work and play... the place I speak of with love and passion and a sense of awe, when I travel the world... no my friend, it’s not England, it’s Wales!

Martyn Phillips: #myWales is quite simply home, the place where I belong. The place I am proud to say I come from. The place where my story starts and the place where my story will end.
