In this episode of Defence Connect podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Mike Whitelaw, director and NSW manager of Wandering Warriors, the fundraising initiative of the Australian Special Air Service Association.



Wandering Warriors assists ex-service personnel transitioning from the ADF into the corporate world, and Whitelaw stresses the importance of finding a role that utilises their skill set and positions them and their families for an enjoyable future.

Whitelaw also reflects on his 17 years of service and reveals how he has applied his skill set from the force in his past and current positions, his transition from the ADF to the corporate world, the challenges he faced and how he overcame them, and the common misconceptions that people often have about veterans.

Enjoy the podcast,
