I am honored to be able to share this interview with Geoff Tomlinson who speaks to us of the origins of MDI, whose mission is as follows:
To cause greatness by mentoring men to live with excellence and, as mature masculine leaders, create successful families, careers and communities.
Geoff shared much more with us, below are a few excerpts.
The groups that are formed are able to give and receive the truth in fatherhood, careers and in being a man.
