The AFB CEO programme provides strategic thought leadership aimed at informing senior bankers and facilitating access for them at the highest levels of influence. This is achieved via an exclusive and carefully curated programme of events with some of the most important banking stakeholders in the UK. All events are held under the Chatham House Rule to promote open and confidential discussions.
The AFB CEO programme is strictly for GMs/CEOs, limited to 30 participants, and no delegates will be accepted. We invite applications from all AFB members and acceptance onto the programme is at the discretion of the AFB.
The 2022 programme will be confirmed soon. To register your interest in attending the 2022 programme, please use the ‘contact us’ button below to send us an email. Please see below for details of last year’s events.
