Update: Due to Covid-19, during 2020 forums are being held online. For more information visit Forums International website.

This forum has been developed with our partners Acumen, Experian and Moreton Smith. Membership is open to all credit and finance professionals in the industry sectors. 

The Difference 

Forums International say their forums are different because they are learning experiences where the agenda items are dictated by the members. They are not lecture based, but interactive workshop and discussion based. The sessions are on a 50:50 basis: 50% is led by a subject-matter expert, whilst the other 50% is where the attendees can share their experiences. You will never be intentionally sold to. Our forums provide opportunities for credit and finance professionals to meet and discuss key trading issues in their industry sectors. Also, to share experiences and challenges and most importantly, discuss innovation and how they have secured success.

  • Gain tools and techniques to help them face new and existing business challenges

  • Help to improve their team`s productivity and results
