A small showcase of companies operating across these industries are able to help delegates to understand why ex-Military personnel are so appealing to such a diverse range of sectors.

A number of inspirational speakers shared their experiences of working within the FM and related sectors and showed delegates what guidance and support is at hand, such as mentors, for both the employee and the employer.

The events conclude with some drinks and networking, with delegates having the opportunity to meet our speakers and interact with the company showcase. 


In Aid Of

The OppO Foundation


The OppO Foundation has been established to help ex-military personnel, their families and dependants on their return to civilian life.

However life in the military is very different to life as a civilian and support is also needed to help people survive the culture change.

It is also important to recognise that support is not a one-sided affair.  The OppO Foundation also supports the civilian community to welcome and benefit from their return.



​Heropreneurs is a not-for-profit military charity providing practical support to those from the military community in their ambition to create their own business.

With the support and backing of the Government, MOD, veterans' networks, partner charities and industry leaders we are able to provide a free mentoring network guiding them through start-up to scaling.


The Standing Tall Foundation


The Standing Tall Foundation has been established as the Andy Reid Standing Tall CIC to further the charitable aims of William Andrew Reid MBE.  Andy’s wars may be over, but his campaigning continues, this time the enemy is social issues, including homelessness, debt management, relationships and mental health.

As Andy says “these are real people with real needs, not just a set of statistics and I aim to use my Foundation to help meet those needs”.
