The Royal Aeronautical Society, Team Defence Information, ACFEA UK and RUSI collaborated for the first Tim to bring you the ‘Young Professionals in Defence’ Networking Reception, sponsored by BAE Systems.

It was an afternoon to celebrate, educate and inspire young professionals in defence. The agenda included an introduction of the Young Professionals in Defence Network, and a keynote address from Wg Cdr Keith Dear, Joint Forces Command.

The afternoon was a mix of talks from industry, MoD and academia for your own personal development as well as important networking discussions. A few topics included the important role young people will play across Defence in facing upcoming technology challenges and threats, now and in the future. Collaboration is key at all levels and with over 100 present it was an amazing event.
