Our Advisory Board

The NDI Advisory Board comprises leading experts drawn from industry, government departments and the world of politics. Each has a proven and respected record in areas of defence, aerospace, security or space and give their time freely to provide guidance and specialist advice to the NDI team. This is a powerful body able to facilitate access and lobby effectively on behalf of the membership and broader interests of UK industry.

The board meets quarterly under the Chairmanship of Craig Priday to review the work of NDI, update on areas of policy development and identify members’ concerns and what needs to be done in order to support them. Between formal meetings they remain abreast of NDI member issues and are on hand to offer the organisation their insight and observations.
