#53: John Bale on veterans, changing perceptions and how to build a movement
0:00 -:--
In Episode 53 Phil speaks with John Bale, CEO and Co-Founder of Soldier On, a Not-For-Profit established after he discovered a severe lack of support for veterans (and their families) who discharged after sustaining injuries during their service. John served in the Australian Army for 12 years and finished his career as a Chief of Army Scholar writing on the de-stigmatisation of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in the Australian Army. He was state finalist for 2014 Young Australian of the year and winner of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 (Eastern Region). Phil and John talk about changing the perception of Post Traumatic Stress, the value veterans bring to the community, negotiating the ‘in between’ and the three habits that make founders successful.
