Hear tales of true mental resilience:

RMA – The Royal Marines Charity will be holding its inaugural Enterprise Dinner, at 8 Northumberland Avenue on 5 June. This dinner is a special fundraising celebration of the Royal Marines’ contribution to the United Kingdom’s military capability and thematically focuses on resilience.

The Commando Mindset: Be the first to Understand; the first to Adapt and Respond; and the first to Overcome, translates seamlessly into the ever-changing and challenging world of business. Royal Marines are business leaders, financiers, entrepreneurs, academics, politicians and innovators, in almost every walk of life. RMA – The Royal Marines Charity builds resilient connections between serving Royal Marines and the UK’s multifaceted business community and a key aim of the dinner is to extend and deepen these connections.

The dinner takes place the evening before the 75th anniversary of D Day and will naturally commemorate this historic military endeavour.

The programme for an evening of enduring spirit, resolve, courage and humour:

  • Welcome Speech by Brian Gilvary, CFO at BP PLC
  • Lee “Frank” Spencer, Royal Marine and double world record breaker
  • The RMA Concert Band
  • Baz Gray, Royal Marine and Antarctic explorer
  • Live Auction
  • Providing the humour: Nick Page, Winner of English
  • Comedian of the year, Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist, provider of comedic relief to troops on 7 tours of Afghanistan
