SDSR 2015 Briefing & Drinks Reception - "Innovate, Cooperate, Be Flexible, Think Ahead"

02 November 2015

16.00 - 19.30

Bird & Bird, 15 Fetter Lane, London, EC4A 1JP

SDSR 2015 is expected to be released at the end of November and is tipped to be an extensive and thorough review. Released against a backdrop of unprecedented threats to the UK's safety and security, and a commitment to spend 2% of GDP on defence for the remainder of parliament, the results are hotly anticipated. We would like to invite you to join us to hear Howard Wheeldon of Wheeldon Strategic Advisory introduce the topic and provide an overview, followed by a unique insight and analysis from The Rt Hon. James Arbuthnot, former defence minister. This will be followed by an interactive Q&A session chaired by Howard Wheeldon. The briefing will provide an opportunity for us all to share views and will give us a standing start to react and respond to SDSR 2015 as and when it is released.
