Cripps Sears & Partners is proud to host a number of Networking Forums throughout the year. These take the form of an informal, round-the-table, chaired discussion over lunch.

Our attendees – ranging from first-timers to ‘luncheon veterans’ – comprise senior executives and/or practitioners with a mutual interest and extensive knowledge in a particular industry or discipline.
