Meetings are run locally in New York and provide both educational and networking opportunities for managing partners and other senior members of the management team. MPF New York connects the local professional services community with the wider MPF network, whilst generating real value for members closer to home. As a membership organisation, all our meetings are member only. However, those interested in joining are welcome to attend one event as our guest in order to get a feel for the group.

The MPF collects confidential data and conducts regular surveys amongst MPs and members of the management team based worldwide. Leading consultants in strategy and leadership, appointed by the MPF Executive Committee, prepare monthly surveys on strategy and leadership issues, summarise findings, and make presentations at MPF events held in key cities worldwide (London, New York, Frankfurt etc). All findings are released for free into the public domain to ensure professional firms everywhere have access to reliable facts on key management issues. more...
