John’s take on IMAGINE? There’s no Bootcamp for CEOs: Lessons from a Military Veteran turned CEO.
As local tech company Martello made history with its debut on the TSX Venture Exchange in September of last year, CEO John Proctor became one of few military veterans to take a company public in Canada. Looking back at his journey, John shares what military culture has taught him about business and considers the impact on Canada’s economy if more businesses understood how to make the most of the untapped talent pool it has in Canada’s military veterans.
