A valuable partner
This is where the Managing Partners’ Forum can be such a valuable partner. Our purpose is to support the growth, productivity and prosperity of professional services – eg. legal, accountancy, consultancy, engineering, real estate advisory etc. The 100 firms that currently belong to the Forum bring together tens of thousands of professionals worldwide.
An exclusive international community
Reap the substantial benefits of belonging to an exclusive international community of peers. The Forum is just for leaders of professional firms - Managing Partners/CEOs; Senior Partners/Chairs; Divisional leaders (eg. office, regional or practice heads); and COOs. In addition to creating connectivity and value with each other, we help our members be the best they can at improving their firms, with the ripple effect of doing the same for their clients.
An influential independent voice
The Forum constantly promotes the vital contribution of the sector to the economy, local communities and public life. We act as an independent voice on behalf of the sector to professional associations, government regulatory bodies and other influential key audiences that have an impact on the sector. Current campaigns and projects include:
The Forum provides connectivity to gain perspective on common issues and priorities through multiple routes, all tailored to member needs based on feedback. Current services in Canada include:
The Chatham House Rule
The Rule originated at Chatham House (The Royal Institute of International Affairs in London) with the aim of encouraging openness of discussion and facilitating the sharing of information. It is now used throughout the world as an aid to free discussion of sensitive issues. It provides a way for speakers to openly discuss their views in private while allowing the topic and nature of the debate to be made public and contribute to a broader conversation.
The Rule reads as follows: “When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.”
