Publisher’s note: The original philosophical foundation underpinning the creation of Unsung Business Heroes was a desire to provide a platform for small business to have a voice, in order that other people, perhaps just starting out on their own business journeys, would be able to benefit from the many insights and advice of successful business operators.
So much information and knowledge is lost when business owners retire or pass on, as is the case with Haydon Skudder, whose incredible story, spanning many decades, is detailed below.
As a spitfire pilot in World War II, Haydon showed us all that fear can be overcome, and he repeated that lesson for us in his exceptional business life as well.
It’s so important that these unique stories are given their due respect, and broadcast widely. Haydon’s story is so remarkable – certainly for his feats of courage, but also for his authenticity, his caring and for all the life-lessons he’s left us as part of his legacy.
