We also discuss Goal Groups operations and trends in the industry surrounding changes in export control, assisting SMEs, their definition of sovereign capability and policy implementation.

The podcast also discusses their Defence Ready Seminars that aim to train SMEs to get them ready to work with Defence and prepare for all the nuances that come with working in the sector. We also explore the large range of business areas that support Defence, the initiative to increase the representation of women within the sector and ISO certifications.
