X-Forces Enterprise (XFE) CEO Ren Kapur MBE was invited to join a select group of senior leaders at the inaugural ‘Defence Insight Briefing’ on 23rd January 2019.
Lancaster House was the venue for the exclusive event, open to the Gold Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) community, which was hosted by the two most senior people in Defence – the Secretary of State for Defence, Gavin Williamson MP and the Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS), Sir Nick Carter.
100 senior leaders from the UK’s civil sector joined together to celebrate organisations that have shown the greatest level of support to the nation’s reservists, veterans, military spouses and partners, and Cadet Force Adult Volunteers. In a personal and private engagement, attendees were given an insight into the defence of the country and what the future might look like.
Ren Kapur MBE said:
“It was an honour to be part of this exclusive gathering of ERS Gold Award organisation leaders, and to hear the views of the Secretary of State for Defence and the Chief of the Defence Staff. The event was a superb opportunity to bring together those organisations that are leading the way in supporting the defence community to consider the future and the challenges we may face, perpetuating the pledges we have made.
“I am proud that XFE is a proactive member of the ERS Gold Alumni Association. Insights provided by this private briefing enable us to continue to be at the forefront of delivering solutions for the future needs of the people and businesses we support.”
