The highly-anticipated 2018 Soldiering On Awards ceremony took place on Friday 20 April at London’s Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in front of a distinguished audience that included veterans, military dignitaries, X-Forces supporters and the many friends and family of those nominated from the Armed Forces community.
It was an amazing, glittering evening that celebrated all the Armed Forces Community including Armed-Forces-led businesses across the UK. There is incredible talent within the community and these awards recognise the depth, breadth, diversity and high quality of the military organisations and initiatives.
Since 2013, X-Forces Enterprise are proud to have worked in partnership with leading experts in finance, corporate engagement, government and charity, some of whom were present with us on the night – to create the best environment for our former service men and women to flourish in the world of enterprise. As I said in my speech, “I have no doubt that the skills, attitude and experience gained from a career in the Armed Forces equips many with the capability they need to go into the world of business and entrepreneurship.”
