Bringing together service leavers at the Gen Dit Network event

Forces Cars Direct recently had the honour of attending the Gen Dit Network event at the unique ABC Building in Manchester, where service leavers and ex-military met to discuss transition, veterans in business and to offer help to those that may need it.

The Gen Dit Network is a group based on LinkedIn that is very simply a safe space for anyone that is leaving the Military to find help and advice. In the group are veterans that have been through the resettlement process, recruiters and veteran-friendly businesses that offer employment, and a whole range of other people that simply want to help the ex-forces community. Follow and join the group here:

Forces Cars Direct attended the North West meet up for this group organised by Chris Shaw and Jim Holland, with people attending from further a field too. Inspiring talks were delivered by Andy Reid MBE, James Wilthew and Dr Andrew Steele.

Comments from attendees included:

“What a fantastic day it was. A really valuable demonstration of how the network works.”

“Great afternoon. Good to swap stories and to make some really useful connections.”

“A highly useful afternoon. Great venue. Great food. Great company.”

“What a fantastic event. Looking forward to being part of more.”

There are some exciting times ahead with the Gen Dit Network and Forces Cars Direct are proud to be able to support this important group.
