UK Military Leadership Circle is invited to the Milken London Summit, 4-5 December 2017.

The Milken Summit is the cornerstone event of the annual MLC Program.  The Summit will spotlight critical global issues by bringing together over 1,000 successful world leaders from government, business, academics, and non-profit sectors. MLC members will participate as panel members on a variety of topics, and have the opportunity to question, debate and exchange ideas: seeing the world through someone else’s eyes, and making bridges across the civilian-military divide.

MLC Members from OF2 to OF5 rank are invited to apply below.  Applications will be sent to the Milken Institute to select attendees for this year.  Selection in 2017 allows Members to attend the Summit for 2 years, which need not be taken consecutively.

Personnel who are not successful in their application are still welcome to join the MLC, and will be able to participate fully in the other events and activities throughout the year.


Please answer the following 4 questions in 2-3 paragraphs per section. Please expand all abbreviations where applicable, as it will be read by a multi-national board.

Completed Word or PDF documents should be sent to no later than 15 September 2017.  Include your full name, contact phone number and email address in your application.
