April 25 is ANZAC Day.
April has long been a special time of remembrance and commemoration for those serving in the armed forces. Thanks to COVID, many traditional events aren’t proceeding in 2021, but we believe that there is always an opportunity to show our respect, to appreciate a different perspective, and to learn the lessons that can only come from serving in the military.

To serve & protect
As civilians, we rarely have the opportunity to understand life in the military. There are so many critical life lessons and lessons for business that can be gleaned from experts with first-hand accounts.
At ICMI, we have a range of veteran, motivational, ex-military and military speakers who can demonstrate what it means to serve our country. They have dedicated their lives to their jobs, worked through fear, inspired a squadron, strategized the next move and overcome situations where success through resilience is the only option.

The History of ANZAC Day
On the morning of 25 April 1915, the Anzacs set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in order to open the Dardanelles to the allied navies. … The 25th of April soon became the day on which Australians remember the sacrifice of those who had died in the war.
In 1916, the first anniversary of the landing was observed in Australia, New Zealand and England and by troops in Egypt. That year, 25 April was officially named ‘Anzac Day’ by the Acting Prime Minister, George Pearce. By the 1920s, Anzac Day ceremonies were held throughout Australia.
In military tradition, the Last Post is the bugle call that signifies the end of the day’s activities. It is also sounded at commemorative services such as Anzac Day and Remembrance Day.
