Veteran Royal Marine Commandos Joe Winch and Jon White, together with RMA Director of Development Tom Wilson, made a successful whistle-stop visit to Boston, Massachusetts in September. There they presented Commando Mindset resilience training to senior members of the Clinical Development Group from one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies that has research and development sites around the world.

RMA – The Royal Marines Charity has started taking this programme to wider audiences to help senior management build extraordinary team resilience. Leading financial and pharmaceutical companies are finding it especially valuable in helping empower those working under the extreme pressures of tight deadlines – though this was the first time it has been taken ‘offshore’.  

A representative of the company enthused by saying: ‘This was a tremendous day.  Your openness, honesty, and incredible leadership for this program is second to none’.

Tom commented: ‘We all really enjoyed presenting Commando Mindset in the USA for the first time.  The feedback was really positive and it is clear that the training resonated with all the attendees we spoke with.

We feel enormously privileged to have been able to deliver this to such an influential audience in Boston and are truly grateful to Joe and Jon for their powerful, brave and candid participation.”
