Virtual Fireside Chats

The Navy WIngs Series

Every Navy Wings Partner company is given a seat in the “room” for these small, exclusive talks from some of the UK’s leading defence experts. The intimate discussions and small group sizes mean that your staff can hear from the experts and ask questions. Places are restricted – the number of places allocated to your company depends on the company’s Partner membership level.

Select the Fireside Chat of interest and register for the event using the links below.

Navy Wings is extremely grateful for the support of the following officers and senior civil servants who have given their time to the charity to support our Fireside Chat series.
