The CEO Forum provides a unique, powerful and valuable space for the candid sharing of experience between the sector’s most senior executives so that they can leave with new ideas that will drive their businesses and the sector forward. It is an invitation only, exclusive round table forum where all participants are active discussants and have an equal voice.
