Professor Norman Drummond, Chair of WW100 Scotland and the Scottish Commemorations Panel offers his reflections and hopes for the educational and genealogical legacy of the World War I commemorative programme in the run up to and including Armistice 2018 and beyond.

Norman Drummond’s life and work embodies a personal commitment to leadership and to developing talent in others, from the gangland areas of Glasgow and Edinburgh as a young Minister to the present day as a celebrated international speaker and author.  His Army career saw him serve as Chaplain to The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment).  A former Headmaster of Loretto and former BBC Governor and Chairman of BBC Children in Need, Norman’s work with young people also continues through his appointment as Honorary Colonel of The Black Watch Battalion of the Army Cadet Force.  Norman currently Chairs WW100 Scotland and the Scottish Commemorations Panel and is the Special Representative for Scotland on the UK WWI Advisory Group.  Norman is a Chaplain to Her Majesty The Queen in Scotland, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and Visiting Professor of Leadership in Education at the University of Edinburgh.  Norman’s latest book Step Back continues to build upon the success of his previous publications The Spirit of Success and The Power of 3.
