Richard Morgan is Head of Defence, Security and the Forces team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys and lead for 3CDSE. He said: “Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire comprise the hub of the UK’s defence and security industry, the ‘golden triangle’, with Special Forces in Hereford, Qinetiq and the Malvern Cyber Cluster in Worcestershire, and GCHQ in Gloucestershire, with all the satellite industries around them.
“Several sources suggest that 90 per cent of the UK’s defence and security innovation has its home in this triangle.”
Key speakers are coming from across the regional and nationally. They include Nicola Whiting, Chief Strategy Officer at Worcester-based Titania and Tony White, Chief Technology Officer at Ultra Electronics, which has a site at Cheltenham.
