The Last Ring Home: The Last Ring Home is the story of Lt Minter Dial’s Annapolis Naval Academy ring, that miraculously made its way home 17 years after he was killed as a POW of the Japanese in WWII. The Last Ring Home is a tribute to Lt Dial, the producer's grandfather, and all members of the greatest generation. It is also a journey of self-discovery. The Last Ring Home is to inspire everyone to uncover their own personal history, to keep a foot in their past and the other in the future, and to be thankful for the tremendous present in which we live in.
Minter Dial: After a long and successful international career at L’Oreal, Minter Dial returned to his entrepreneurial roots to create The Myndset Company in 2009, a boutique agency designed to help senior management teams to adapt to the new exigencies of the internet-enabled marketplace. Minter has worked with world-class organisations to help activate their brand strategies, and to integrate new technologies and digital tools, devices and platforms. Above all, Minter works to catalyse a change in mindset.
Sarah Abbott MW: Wine, for Sarah, has been a way of interpreting the world, and making friends all over it. In 2008, she passed her Master of Wine exam and founded Swirl, an education and events business, to empower consumers, celebrate the stories inside every bottle and harness the power of wine (and food) to bring people together. She is Clerkenwell London's Master of Wine in-residence and selects wines that reflects the beauty and diversity of the wine world.
