167: "If you're coming out of the military community, don't worry about growing up. You can still love doing fun things." Matt Wood helps Military-Friendly companies become Military ReadyHave you ever encountered a situation where turning adversity into opportunity led to the creation of something innovative and impactful? "Chief Headache Reducer" and Founder of Suiting Green Consulting Matt Wood certainly has.Jen Amos speaks with Matt Wood to hear his experiences as a Former Military Professional, Military Spouse, and a 2023 Service2CEO graduate of The Rosie Network. He shares fond memories of how a casual question from his wife inspired him to work at Disney. However, after being laid off from his job at Disney, he identified a knowledge gap between corporate America and the military community. This led him to establish Suiting Green Consulting, a firm dedicated to bridging this gap and helping companies hire better from the military community. Matt's passion lies in transforming companies from being military-friendly to military-ready. He also explains the importance of using the term "former military professionals" instead of "veterans." 2.5 years later, he's been able to build partnerships with nonprofits to help companies find top talent from the military community.
