Campaigns

Vital contributors

Professionals make a vital contribution to the economy, local communities and public life. They have created some of the best managed, most flexible and productive firms in the world, with UK firms having the largest share of GDP in the G7. Our campaign sets the record straight. 

Government liaison

Government is showing a growing interest in gathering views, data and intelligence from and about professional services, the UK's largest and arguably most successful sector. The GLO Club lies at the heart of our campaign to link local professional firms to Government.

Philanthropy

The 340,000 individuals in the UK with more than £1m of investable wealth give some £1.3bn annually to good causes. Most advisers are seen as reactive with little awareness of their impact. Yet, those who are well advised give up to 17 times more to good causes.

Productivity

Professional firms are encouraged to share their unsung leadership and management expertise with their clients to help those clients increase their employee engagement, productivity and resilience, thereby boosting UK productivity. Sign the pledge!

The greatest benefit I get from the Forum is having the exposure to new thinking, new ideas and new solutions to the challenges we all face as fellow professionals.
