RSL NSW invites you to their event

How to build skills for business and employment: Tips from recent veterans

About this event

Veterans Hudson Fysh and Paul McGinness were given an assignment at the end of WWI: survey an air race across northern Australia. As they drove more than 2,000km setting up supply dumps for the competitors, they developed the idea that would become Qantas.

Fysh and McGinness were no aberration – veterans make excellent entrepreneurs. As Aspen Medical founder Glenn Keys told Reveille readers last year, military training in understanding complex issues and delivering solutions is the perfect preparation for business.

Join a panel of recent veterans turned entrepreneurs as they discuss what inspired each of them to start their businesses and how they have done it, how they use their military experience in entrepreneurship and leadership, the challenges they have faced and how they have overcome them, and more.
