Vital contributors

Our sector makes a vital contribution to the UK economy, local communities and public life. The campaign aims to set the record straight. 

Independent NEDs

Forum members would make ideal NEDs at corporates as this is not only beneficial for them and their firms, but could result in a material boost to UK productivity.


340,000 individuals with more than £1m of investable wealth give some £1.3bn annually to good causes. Those who are well advised give up to 17 times more.


Local leaders from every sector of the UK economy, business schools, professional bodies and Government, working together to help solve the UK's productivity problem

I consistently find the leadership sessions useful and stimulating.The quality of the speakers, the openness of the debate and the opportunity to share best practice across professional services organisations makes the Forum really valuable and always makes me really question and think through again what we are doing in my own firm.
