Don Ramer’s Lessons from Napoleon

On the Road

Don Ramer, Founding Partner and CEO of Arbita, industry leader and road warrior has been a solid supporter of the Recruiting Roadshow from the beginning.

Anyone who has taken the trouble to get to know Don — and you should — will appreciate that he has a point of view which is telescoped through various interests, interests that bring recruiting closer for us to see in the context of life. If you have read Don’s blog, The Art of War for Talent — and you should — you will also appreciate that his strategic thinking and business savvy is shaped by his study of great military thinkers, among other things of course.

Napoleon said an army marches on its stomach. It is widely thought Napoleon meant warriors must eat well to soldier on. However, Don instructed me when we last met what Napoleon really meant was this: Campaigns are won and lost on the armies’ ability supply the frontlines with food, clothes and what-have-you. In other words, do not forget the logistics!

Don has again generously agreed to feed everyone who comes to the Dallas Recruiting Roadshow. In this way, his support for our event is obvious. Not quite so obvious though are all the things that Don does behind the scenes to ensure no one ever has to question how the rations actually got there.

More than an ally, Don is a friend. Thank you.
