The AFB Leadership Programme provides an invaluable opportunity for the CEOs of member firms to engage directly with some of the UK’s most important banking stakeholders. Participants hear directly from those who are responsible for creating Government and Regulatory policy as well as learn from senior leaders engaged with financial services.  We are delighted that the 2024 programme is now included as part of your annual AFB membership subscription.

Throughout 2024, the AFB Leadership Programme will offer a varied series of thought leadership sessions designed specifically for senior leaders of our member firms. The events will be held in-person, facilitating opportunities for attendees to develop relationships with their peers. 

All events are held under the Chatham House Rule to promote an open and confidential discussion.

As this programme is included in the AFB subscription, we expect each event to be extremely popular, so places will be offered on a first come first served basis. Based on the popularity of each event, it is unlikely that we will be able to offer places to CEO/GM substitutes from your leadership team. However, should you wish to propose anyone to join, please contact AFB and we will be happy to discuss and consider.

We are delighted that BCLP (Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner) will support this programme with their expertise, insight and sponsorship.
