Defence People Group coordinated a familiarisation activity for senior representatives from large corporate enterprises to showcase the inherent capabilities of Defence personnel recently.

The visit last week included a tour of HMAS Canberra, RAAF Base Richmond and Holsworthy Barracks.

The purpose of the program is to familiarise senior executives with the skills and capabilities that ex-service personnel have by virtue of their experience and training within Defence.

The program specifically highlighted those less-tangible skills and attributes related to leadership, adaptability, flexibility and the management of people in demanding situations.

Representatives were from Fairfax Media, Qantas, AGL, Westpac, and JP Morgan, and several other companies.
