The April Forum
The April Forum is an exclusive meeting place for senior leaders to exchange ideas and solve problems.
We know leaders face increasing pressure to adapt in this fast-changing, uncertain world and there is no obvious silver bullet. Our forum is a place where senior leaders can talk openly about the challenges they face and collectively move thinking on.
The meetings are led by invited guests and our managing partners, who between them have more than 100 years’ experience of working in strategy and implementation at senior level across all sectors.
Forums are held either in person or online and always under Chatham House rules.
“This is somewhere where you can talk about those things that keep you awake at night, where you can work through problems with others who might be going through similar challenges.” Tim Westall, April Co-founder
