About the Forum

The Forum brings together professional firm leaders to share ideas on strategic leadership and management excellence. Our goal is to support the growth, productivity and prosperity of the UK’s largest business sector. This involves connecting and creating value in our own community, and also acting as an independent voice of professional services to Government, and providing direct access to policymakers.

Be the best you can

Planning for the future seems as important and challenging as ever. Driven by an ongoing search for value and efficiency, and a growing stream of new technologies that automate traditionally manual work, firms are fundamentally re-evaluating their processes and business models. There is little doubt that this will have a profound impact on the professions in coming years.

Busy leaders and managers do not always have sufficient tools or time to redesign their firms. That is where the Forum can be such a valuable partner. However you and your firm engage with us, our services create value by helping you be the best you can at improving the productivity and profitability of your firm and its clients, and at preparing for an uncertain future.

Engage with the Forum

A seamless platform with relevant ideas and a place to share issues and solutions help you increase your knowledge and broaden your options through learning how others are tackling the multiple challenges that we all face. Some services are just for Forum members; many are free.
