  3. Peer Learning Groups


Coming soon...

Invites are sent out approximately six weeks before each event. All events take place in London unless otherwise stated


The MPF has formed Groups based on specialist contribution to the leadership or management of a professional firm. Some events and hubs are restricted to Group members; others are open to any member of the MPF. Events are also organised that bring together all the members of the management team, known as 'Management Team Together' (MTT) sessions.


Change is most likely to take place when those holding diverse perspectives come face-to-face on a regular basis. Each MPF campaign therefore has a Club at its heart.


Be part of a strong independent voice on matters affecting our sector and wider national debates through contributing to joint surveys with Government, attending local Club meetings and raising issues directly with Government through a secure private Hub. more on GLO Club…


Harness peer wisdom through sharing common challenges at meetings with the same small group, assisted by an expert moderator. Involves supplementary dues.
