Here at In Professional Development, we have made a £500 to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Honoring our service members is very important to us at In Professional Development. We are grateful for the sacrifices they have made, and the sacrifices they continue to make to ensure our safety. Therefore, we have decided to donate £500 to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Our Partnership

Honoring our service members is one of our core values within our organisation. We have a partnership with the Career Transition Partnership. They help soldiers in retraining to make the transition to a civilian career. We assist in their training course content and deliveries, and we support their cause.

Ex Service Members In Our Team

Two of our tutors, Alex Firmin and James Fowler, are ex service members. They are valued members of our organisation, and this is another reason why we do what we can to support our service members.

James Fowler

James lectures in management and strategy at the University of Essex. He was previously an associate Lecturer at the University of York and a regular Officer in the Armed Forces. He has completed a PGCE in Further Education and an MSc in Educational Practice and Innovation. His published work covers the finance, governance and leadership of organisations in a historical context.

James has advised on the design and delivery of promotion courses for the Royal Engineers and for some foreign Armed Forces. He also had significant engagement with language teaching in the UK and the Middle East, serving as head of the language wing at the Defense College of Intelligence and Security.

Alex Firmin

Alex is a qualified leadership coach and organisational psychologist with extensive experience of developing high-value bespoke training and learning programmes for clients in the public and private sectors.

During his 12-year army career, Alex rose to the rank of captain. He served in the Royal Anglian Regiment and then the Education Corps, holding a number of senior training and learning roles.

100 Years

2021 marks 100 years since Remembrance Day traditions were nationally recognised. This is why now is an important time to pay our respect.

What Do The Royal British Legion Do?

The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal provides a lifeline for actively serving and retired service members and their families from all branches of the military. Their aim is to tie communities together and give these service members the support where they need it the most. It is our duty as a nation to help them.

How Does Your Donation Help?

One example of this is when soldiers leave the service. For many soldiers, this is a difficult transition to make. The Royal British Legion can help here by providing financial support, emotional support and vital career advice to help them make the transition to civilian life as comfortably as possible. They also immediately make them feel included in a civilian society.
