Be the best you can

As we all adapt to a world turned upside down by populist upheaval, the Managing Partners' Forum is proud to remain The Home of the Well-Managed Firm™.

  • However you and your firm engage with us, our member services create value by helping firm-wide, client-facing and operational leaders, your teams and firms be the best you can at improving performance, increasing profitability and preparing for an increasingly uncertain future.
  • Busy management teams do not always have sufficient tools or time to redesign their firms. A seamless platform with relevant ideas and a Forum to share issues and solutions, increases knowledge and broadens options through learning how others are tackling the multiple challenges we all face.

  • Our Advisory Board, chaired by pioneer Neville Eisenberg, identifies, debates and shares insights into trends that are likely to impact the strategy of sector firms. 

  • The MPF is widely recognised as the independent voice of the UK's largest and arguably most successful sector - professional & business services - promoting its position to Government, the media, frontline advisers and other stakeholders.

  • A Government Liaison Officer (GLO) Club lies at the heart of the MPF campaign to enhance the links between local professional firms and Government through a mix of surveys, local meetings and a Hub to raise issues directly with Government.

  • Our Management Excellence Awards set the benchmark for leadership & strategy, the client journey, operational excellence, and responsible business.

  • Our long-term knowledge partners include Harvard Business Review and the Financial Times.

There has never been a better time to make the case for policies to help our diverse sector and the UK as a whole thrive as the challenges and opportunities associated with Brexit and the evolving Industrial Strategy unfold over the coming years.
