With the principal guest the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside, Dame Lorna Muirhead and an impressive gathering of regional and national employers and training companies 156 Regiment hosted an excellent Employer Engagement Event in Liverpool on 6 May 2016. The event started with a series of static displays and a welcome from the Commanding Officer, Lieutenant Colonel David Ashman. This was followed by an excellent regimental dinner. Key note speakers were Brigadier (Retired) Chris Murray Vice President of Agility DGS Europe and David Coupe MD from Transport Training Academy and both gave well received thoughts on the value of Military/Industry and community engagement. Of the Fifteen local and regional employers represented all have signed up for the Military Covenant.
The dinner provided an excellent opportunity to showcase the Regiment and to raise awareness of the comprehensive training given to Reserve RLC soldiers and the quality of those who have completed it. The event was supported whole heartedly by the RLC Foundation.
