United Kingdom Military Leadership Circle

Who are we?

The Military Leadership Circle is a group of military leaders from OF2 to OF5 rank who actively seek and employ new ways to share best practice between the civilian and military communities in the UK.  They are innovative thinkers, active participants and committed to their military careers.  They eagerly share military best practices during corporate engagements while also constantly seeking to learn and grow as military professionals.

The MLC is not a government agency or organisation, and its members do not speak on behalf of the MOD unless specifically authorised.  Rather, they act as a group to embrace the vision set out in the Defence Innovation Initiative – to bridge the gap between the military and civilian spheres, and endeavouring to see the world through someone else’s eyes.  All opinions expressed on this website and by the MLC are those of the individuals alone.
