What is the Army Engagement Group?
The Army Engagement Group (AEG) tours the country engaging with a wide variety of people to give them a greater understanding of the British Army; who we are, what we do and how we contribute to society. The AEG has four teams that can offer various multi-media presentations
and activities, before giving people the chance to meet and talk to some of our soldiers.
Our presentation lasts approximately 30 minutes during which time we look at why we have an Army, what we are doing on the Nation’s behalf, how we train and develop our soldiers, how we are structured and what we are doing to ensure success both today and in the future.
The presentation includes video footage of soldiers in training, on operations and the equipment we use, as well as hearing from people throughout the Army community, both soldiers and their families.
Following our presentation we have a question and answer session where audience members can ask us anything about the Army or Army policy.
There is also plenty of opportunity to talk to members of the team informally.
In short - anywhere.
Our presentations take place in a wide variety of settings, from evening presentations, where invited guests from the community are hosted by local members of the Army, through to presentations given in council chambers, your place of work or a community group.
There is no charge for our presentations or activities and we come with all our own equipment. We just request that you provide a suitable venue and audience.
Requests for any of the Army Engagement Group’s teams can be made by emailing RC-AEGfirstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a question, would like to book a presentation or a briefing give us a call, email or write to us.
