What is the CGS's Briefing Team?

The Chief of the General Staff's (CGS) Briefing Team is the link between the Head of the Army and our soldiers, regular and reserves, and their families.

We give briefings to soldiers and Army families to inform them about the current issues and 'hot topics'. Then we listen to what they have to say – both the good and the bad.

Their views and feedback are then presented to the Chief of the General Staff and the Executive Committee of the Army Board (ECAB).

How we do it

We visit every unit, regular and reserve, every two-and-a-half-years – no matter where they are in the world. We give an up-to-date briefing on what the Army is doing now and what is planned for the future, we take CGS' message and deliver it to his Army.

Then we conduct feedback sessions where the audience can raise issues and offer their opinion on any topic they choose.

Why we do it

CGS wants to know what the Army Community is thinking.

Feedback from soldiers and families has real effect and has led to policy initiatives, the procurement of better equipment and changes to terms of service.
