Advisory Board

The Advisory Board acts as a powerful think tank to inform Forum campaigns and our formal representation of the sector to Government.

Current commitments to Government are that the Forum will:

  • Mutual access: Encourage leaders of sector firms and clients to join the Productivity Exchange to share ideas with each other, Government, professional bodies and business schools, and to respond to Government consultations; 
  • Collaboration: Encourage frontline advisers and leadership teams to work together to deliver technical know-how and leadership, management & training expertise to clients;
  • Shared expertise: Bring together leaders from sector firms and clients at local meetings in up to 60 cities across the UK to share tips on leadership style, management excellence, training techniques and ways to increase employee engagement and adopt AI;
  • Innovation: Help sector firms and their clients to adopt AI and ML through free-to-join AI consortia and an ESRC-funded Next Gen Services collaborative design project, in partnership with four business schools;
  • Governance: Seek a ‘healthy’ balance between supply and demand for firmwide leaders and other advisers as independent NEDs at corporates and other organisations as this should result in better Board decisions and a boost to UK productivity.
