An update from Cait Percy, Chair of the NPF.

From the New Professionals Forum, we hope you’re all okay and staying safe in this slightly surreal time. 

Events update – join us this Friday! 

Our epic plan of events is on hold so bear with us while we look at how we can work some innovation activities into the virtual world.  

In the meantime, we’ve been working with the Young Professionals in Defence Network to pull together a virtual event to discuss how Defence has responded to Covid-19 this Friday 24th April 14:30 – 17:30. You’ll hear from some great speakers (see the agenda below) and get the chance to breakout into smaller rooms to network. We’ll be there talking about the NPF and what we’re all about so come along and chat. Sign up here! 

Committee Opportunities 

Currently on the committee, we’ve got BAE Systems, BMT Global, MBDA, and Rolls Royce, and soon we’ll be joined by representatives from Leonardo, QinetiQ, and Atkins Global. If you’re part of one of these companies, and would like to meet your rep, come and find us on LinkedIn. If your company isn’t on that list, are an ADS member, and you think they should be, either email Matt Hogsden or find us on LinkedIn and we can help you get involved.
