Conference focuses on risks and opportunities

31 October 2017

NDI, the organisation representing Britain’s Defence, Security, Aerospace and Space industries, and a fully integrated division of EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, is bringing together a ‘who’s who’ of speakers at its two day National Conference on 22nd and 23rd November at Alderley Park in Cheshire.

The conference will examine the risks and opportunities within the defence, security, aerospace and space sectors over the next two years. Topics to be covered will include Brexit negotiations, future developments in North American markets and the seemingly growing risk from cyber-attack which will all shape business conditions over the short to medium term.

The event will also give delegates the opportunity to hear from Harriet Baldwin, the Minister of State for Defence Procurement, as well as senior figures within the industry sectors and thought leaders from both public and private sectors. 

There will also be the opportunity for networking with peers and ‘meet the buyer’ sessions through facilitated one-on-one meetings. There will also be key breakout panels led by the MoD, Thales and Airbus.

Speakers will include:

Professor Trevor Taylor, RUSI – Brexit Defence Spending Power, Implications & Opportunities

Richard Daniel, CEO Raytheon – International Opportunity & Development

Mark Camillo, Head of Professional Indemnity and Cyber. AIG – Managing Cyber Exposure and Bending the Risk Curve

Brian Johnson, UK Business Development Director BAe Systems Maritime – Update on UK Naval Programmes, timings and opportunities
