A Word From Our Client

“The Legacy Untold event was legendary. Mark, you truly have a gift for gathering an incredible circle of humans together, and hosting. Everyone I met was so interesting, kind, and had a beautiful spirit about them. My favorite part was your introductions and tidbits about each guest. Your words about One&Only and the Dian Fossey fund were on-point and so appreciated. Thank you so very much for your continued partnership and taking this project on.”
Michael Foley, Regional Director, Sales & Marketing, Kerzner International (parent company of One&Only)

Set in some of the most beautiful locales in the world, each remarkable resort offers guests a distinctive experience and personality borne of its local culture, a genuine hospitality and a lively energy that is unrivaled.


The Task

Featured destinations and properties included South Africa (One&Only Cape Town), Rwanda (Nyungwe House & Gorilla’s Nest), Australia (Wolgan Valley), and Maldives (Reethi Rah).

The Legacy

The Legacy Untold created, designed, and hosted one of its signature VIP Gilded Grounds dinner experiences, hosted by its founder Mark Lakin. We partnered with One & Only, Clase Azul, and the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, and delivered sponsorships by Voss Water and Tata Harper Skincare. The Legacy Untold curated an extraordinary guest list of exceptional professionals including C-level executives, top media editors, real estate tycoons, technology investors, famous artists and designers as well as A-listers, respected influencers, and ultra-high-net-worth individuals.
