Building a network is key to starting and scaling a business and how you engage, grow, and nurture an effective network can make a huge difference to the success of your business. Join our discussion focussed to hear how military veterans can and have succeeded in building their networks, and learn about the support available.

Our first session on 26 May includes an introduction from Scott Johnson from Veteran Owned UK where shares his insights from how he started his company and has been able to grow a network to become the UK’s largest online veteran owned business directory.

We’ll also hear from Tim Jones, Founder of Positive Transition, who will be speaking about his own experience of leaving the military to starting his own business supporting other veterans with that journey.

Our third speaker is Steve Smith who strongly believes in UTRINQUE PARATUS - the motto of the Parachute Regiment, which means ‘Ready for Anything’

For over 24 years, Steve.W.Smith has defined SWS Performance Fitness as the functional fitness philosophy of Soldier, Athlete, and trainer. This is an opportunity to experience coaching with a guy in Strength and Conditioning.

Receiving the receiving the Queen's Commendation Award from His Royal Highness Prince Charles, in recognition for supporting and mentoring our Soldiers. In the pursuit of consistency, he’s carried out the same methods of mentoring and coaching to a different part of the world, with different people and a different culture but still with the same results!! And with the right backing SWS will do the same.

This session will be interactive and give you the opportunity to ask the speakers your questions.
