One of the MPF’s primary roles is the representation of management professionals at firms and the wider sector to government.

Since July 2011 the MPF is delighted to have been supporting a UK government advisory board, ‘Professional & Business Services Group’, that seeks input from the professions on improving the competitiveness of the UK.

MPF introduced its Awards in 2002 to recognise the contribution of specific management disciplines. Awards fall under four priorities for management as perceived by clients: leadership and business strategy; supporting people; commerciality and client service; collaboration across the firm and with external stakeholders. Any professional firm or network, large or small, is eligible to enter the Awards.
