  2. Hi Robin,I’m so sorry for the delay. I’ve left my contact details for you to get in touch and find out how you can register. I’d suggest calling 0207 368 9300 or emailing enquire@defenceiq.com. There’s more information on the event at http://www.info-opseurope.com. There are also a whole host of free downloads which you’re more than welcome to download and share with your colleagues. I’ve also set up a Linkedin group for the community – you can access that via the event website if you’d like to connect some more of your peers.
