What the Royal Marines taught me about resilience

In his 20 years with the Royal Marines, Major Ben Richardson led troops in Iraq and Afghanistan; trained ranks from raw recruits to warrant officers, and received the commando medal for courage, leadership and cheerfulness in adversity – qualities never more needed by all of us

Now in the frontline of food retail, Ben shares his tips for building resilience and supporting your team when the bombshells just keep coming.

Listen to our podcast with Ben to learn –

  • the Royal Marines mantra: improvise, adapt and overcome
  • how to prepare for uncertainty – and build team trust
  • the ‘commando qualities’ of courage, determination and (crucially) a sense of humour!
