Cameron Sanders

Industry: Executive Recruitment

Previous Service: Army

"From my time in the services, no one helped or developed me more than the people I worked with the other veterans. After the military, it was veterans who were there to support me when I needed them. I've been very lucky to always have a veteran, or group of vets to call on when I needed help. This program is giving me a chance to be that help and support for other veterans, ones that I haven't met yet, it's an opportunity that I couldn't pass up"

Jono Andrade

Industry: Hospitality Agency Owner /Friend Of The People

Previous Service: Army

"When I was transitioning out of defence it was an extremely scary time for me and if it hadn’t had been for Cameron (another vet chapter lead) & Will from WYWM I would not have ended up in the career I am and have no idea what I would be doing now – For what they’ve done for me I’d like to do the same for anyone else going through the same situation – I’d like to pay it forward"​

Trent Northbourne

Industry: IT Service delivery and Project Management

Previous Service: Army

"I have found that the skills, training and qualities that military service instils in its people are sorely needed by the Australian workforce. Supporting veterans and employers to tap this amazing resource and to provide some camaraderie for those seeking a new beginning, is why I became a Chapter lead."
