VETERANS WORK: THE DEBATE

21st JAN 2020 | 1pm - 5pm

This event, following on from previous Veterans Work reports and films was hosted by Deloitte in collaboration with the Forces In Mind Trust (FIMT) and the Officers’ Association (OA). This interactive session, featuring a whole-range of invested stakeholders from business, government, military charities, the media and veterans themselves, moved the veteran narrative on by smashing open the current echo chamber of myths and stereotypes, both positive and negative.
