Lawrence Holt (17 November 1882 – 1961), from the Blue Funnel Shipping Line, was co-founder of the Outward Bound in 1941, along with renowned educator, Kurt Hahn.

According to Heathcote (1971), "for five years, Lawrence Holt persuaded his partners to underwrite the loss on the school and to help with staff and stores. When time and experience were ripe for the development of other Outward Bound schools, the (Outward Bound) Trust was formed to carry on the work."
