Intelligent Defence and Smart Power

Intelligent Defence and Smart Power – innovation, capability, delivery, advancing the national interest

This round table is the culmination of a programme Cityforum has developed with the support of VCDS and the help of DCDC.  The morning focuses on innovation, agility, information advantage and pace, and on the re-imagined ecosystem that will deliver them. Senior officials and officers join industry, academe and international experts for this vital discussion.  The afternoon is devoted to an assessment of the national interest and how the UK should use both its soft and hard power to best effect.  The day includes a major speech by the Vice Chief General Sir Gordon Messenger who follows on from a number of authoritative contributions by key non-defence experts whose participation Cityforum has been invited to secure.
