In the lead up to Veterans Health Week, I’m speaking with one of our country’s most inspiring heroes, Garth Callender. In 2004, Garth was on a routine patrol in Baghdad, when his vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device attack, making him the first serious Australian causality of the war in Iraq. Since then, he’s founded a consultancy firm called Trebuchet Pivot, applying the same methodology he learnt in the army to risk and crisis management in the corporate world. I ask Garth about the tragic event that left him fighting for his life and how his experience in the army has influenced not only how he runs his own business but advises other businesses too.
