Lots of ex-servicemen start their own businesses and I'm often told that when they meet 'sparks fly'. OK, not exactly but you get bullshit free honest conversation, immediate common ground and good things can come out of it. Something I've experienced and absolutely agree with. I've had a couple of conversations this week that have prompted me to propose the first ARRSE B2B event (to be known as A2A?). Call it what you will - networking event, piss-up, ARRSE social; most probably a combination of the three. Perhaps with a formal bit - a speaker, or perhaps just a room in a pub and a meal. Informally "The List" have offered to contribute to the organisation / money behind the bar. Venue will probably be Exeter. If this one is a success others are likely to follow elsewhere of course. I'm sure more polls will follow, especially regarding the date, but what say ye?
