Tuesday 22nd November 2022

On Tuesday 22nd November 2022, Heywood House launched a business seminar series, ‘Heywood House Talks’, with General Sir Nick Carter speaking at the inaugural event.

‘Heywood House Talks’ is a series of networking events hosted at the classic country estate where inspirational leaders speak on an array of topics. By bringing together various local businesses, the events will offer exciting networking opportunities for those who attend.

The first talk was given by former Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir Nick Carter on ‘The Global Strategic Context – The Impact on UK Defence’. The talk was chaired by former Defence Equipment & Support CEO Sir Simon Bollom and was followed by a Q&A and networking drinks. Attendees included leaders from the likes of Babcock International, QinetiQ, Chemring, and Lockheed Martin UK.

With defence having a strong foothold in Wiltshire, Heywood House is encouraging sector incumbents to consider the unique package of services it offers. The business centre recently signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant and became a member of defence trade body ADS.
