What are some key similarities between military and business?
What lessons can be applied to both?
This was the topic of discussion when I went hiking (and stumbling) with Ed Challis MBE, director of Spice Girl Ltd, friend and mentoring client.
Ed is a former British Army officer who -after a distinguished career during which he was awarded an MBE for his command during a difficult overseas operation- he sought challenges anew, this time in the world of entrepreneurship.
After quoting The Office a lot and stopping for lots of snacks, a semi-serious discussion actually broke out.
I am proud to have Ed as one of my clients and for you military lot looking to make the transition, hopefully this interview gives you some useful information on your journey!
