Helping you to be the best you can

As we all adapt to a world that has been almost turned upside down by the upheaval of 2016, the Managing Partners' Forum (MPF) remains the Home of the Well-Managed Firm™:

  • MPF connects people and creates value by motivating and supporting firm-wide, client-facing and operational leaders to be the best they can at improving performance, increasing profitability and preparing for an uncertain future.
  • The MPF Advisory Board has played a critical role in MPF being recognised as the voice of professional & business services, promoting its position to the Government, stakeholders and the media for over 20 years.

  • MPF knowledge partners include Harvard Business Review and the Financial Times.

Looking for deeper insight and management expertise? New to a leadership role? Want to be heard? Join MPF and enjoy a comprehensive range of member services tailored to your needs.
