Get moving in civilian life: tips from four young veterans

Join RSL NSW member, veteran advocate and Sky News host Catherine McGregor and a panel of young veterans as they discuss how they ‘got moving’ in civilian life – the challenges they faced moving into new careers, new communities, new routines and more.

 

 

Host: Catherine McGregor: Army and RAAF veteran; writer and broadcaster

 

Panellists:

  • Nicki Young: Navy veteran; EGM Veteran Services, RSL LifeCare
  • Lieutenant Colonel Nick de Bont: Commanding Officer, Sydney University Regiment; Chief Security Officer, Thales
  • Kieran Toohey: Army veteran; Peer and Community Advisor, Open Arms

Register for ‘Get moving in civilian life: tips from four young veterans’, to see Catherine lead an intimate conversation about:

  • Challenges the veterans faced as they transitioned out of service, and how they overcame these challenges
  • How the veterans have found new communities post-service
  • Why they chose their new careers, and how they translated their ADF experiences into civilian capabilities
  • The impact transition had on their families
  • How RSL NSW and RSL LifeCare can support veterans

Registration also provides access to the on-demand webinar after the event.
