Business, Law, Writing a Will

Business, Law, Writing a Will

As part of my preparation for my expedition rowing my boat solo around the coast of Britain, I had to write a will and plan what would happen to my educational charity Oceans Project after my death. I thought these photos might be of use to other teachers out there teaching about business or discussing what happens when we die. So I am including them in case you ever need a photo for presentation purposes. Please leave me a review and I will send you any other resource of your choice for free (contact me: office@oceansproject.com).
