LARGE CONSULTANCY FORUM
Large consultancies make a huge contribution to the national economy and to our national infrastructure. They are industry leaders at home and sought-after by clients abroad.
ACE’s large consultancy forum provides a space for senior executives to discuss the issues and opportunities they collectively face. Meeting in an intimate dinner setting, guest speakers over the years have included MPs, senior advisers to HM Treasury, the Mayor of London, as well as the chief executives of major clients, presidents of professional associations, and university chancellors.
The forum allows attendees to share concerns and thoughts with their peers and senior ACE staff and provides a natural setting for interacting with decision makers and potential clients.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the forum has met exclusively online, providing a vital space for members to compare their responses to the unique circumstances we are living through.
