Forum



FORUM: London
Forum is a private network, started in London in 2010. There are currently 100 London members, all of whom have been personally invited to join by the club’s founder. The membership is a peer group drawn from the senior échelons of the business community and family offices. Journalists, economists, politicians, public speakers, academics, designers and those working in the arts are also included within the number.

The Conversation
The value of Forum is in the exchange of ideas, experiences and contacts. Forum’s boast is that its members always leave an event, [or a meeting with another member], holding a new idea, a new initiative, a new contact.

Events Calendar
A total of forty events a year are hosted across London, New York and South East Asia. Members come together informally to enjoy a programme of geo-political breakfasts, lunches and dinners headed by keynote speakers. In addition, the calendar includes arts evenings, sporting suppers and drinks parties.

"My Second Network"
Forum operates, in effect, as a ‘second’ network to the individual networks that everyone has developed in their business life. Through the policy of ‘by private invitation’ a peer group has been formed. Trust abounds. Discretion is absolute. As a result, strong relationships are now in place, contacts are happily shared and business is written between members.

The Connectivity
From the outset, the Forum team introduces members to one another on a strategic basis. Potential commercial and personal alignments are thought through and introductions are then made. When travelling, members are hosted by other members within their cities offering both parties the chance to meet and exchange ideas.

Forum: International
An international membership is now in place, ‘mirroring’ the eclectic mix of the London membership. Chapters in New York and Singapore are already established. Further chapters are being created in Dubai and Delhi. Memberships are also being sought in: Los Angeles; San Francisco; Chicago; Miami; Bermuda; Dublin; Kuala Lumpur; Hong Kong; Shanghai; ASEAN Region; Sydney and Mumbai. New members are invited to join Forum through the personal recommendation of the existing membership and the club’s Advisory Board.
