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.


Each Group and Club has a private Hub that provides: directory of members; sector news; discussion forum; content library; event calendar and private messaging.
More on Hubs


Demonstrate and celebrate your contribution to the success of your business through our annual Management Excellence Awards.

CPC members collectively manage annual global expenditure in excess of £20bn on external consultancy and other professional services. All are looking for ways to build relationships with strategic suppliers who can deliver better value. Sponsorship and speaking opportunities are available.
