AFCEA UK West Chapter – Face-to-Face Meeting.

We are pleased to return to Abbey Wood again this year with the outstanding support of the FCG.

DE&S Operational Delivery and the Control Centres

Presented by:
Ms Kelly Bower
Head of Defence Availability Control Centre

Mr Mike Duff OBE
Team Leader – Operations Gateway
DE&S Operations Directorate

Following our very successful visit to the DES Innovation Bridge last year, we are excited to
announce that because we were so well behaved we have been invited back!

On 12 October we will therefore be once again kindly hosted by James Gavin and Team in the Future Capabilities Group for an evening presentation by Ms Kelly Bower and Mr Mike Duff, OBE. Our speakers will update you on the critical operational delivery DES delivers in the current global context and how the Control Centres will aid this effort with visibility and control going forward.

Please do join us for an illuminating evening, and an enthusiastic and robust discussion, all rounded off with a delicious MOD curry in the ABW canteen.

If interested, please contact Michael Jensen, our events coordinator, at  to reserve a place.
