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.
In 2022, the AFB CEO Programme in sponsorship with Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner will again offer a varied series of thought leadership sessions as outlined below. The events are planned to be held in person affording the opportunity for attendees to further grow relationships amongst peers within the AFB membership network.
