IF - Intelligence Forums

  • The aim of Intelligence Forums is to organise meetings throughout the year which will allow City Professionals with different skills to meet regularly.
  • They have many events throughout the year and often have joint events with other networks including The Golden Network run by Victoria Salem.
  • The sponsors of their events are based in Central London and typically are involved with Finance, Insurance, PR the Arts and Companies marketing luxury products.
  • These events allow our members to chat and network, with like-minded proactive people, in a relaxed environment. This approach has the potential to allow professional relationships to develop to a deeper level than in more formal situations.
  • They run a number of events throughout the year. These are usually evening meetings with two or three speakers who highlight economic, investment or legal topics of general interest. They normally convene at six pm for a short reception. This is followed by thirty or forty minutes of talks and then one to two hours of informal discussion over refreshments.
  • Where members have overlapping interests they can organise smaller events geared to the discussion of specific topics. Suggestions for these types of meetings may come from members themselves. Please contact Intelligence Forums if you have any ideas that you would like to develop.
  • Running in parallel with these professional events they also organise evenings which are just for fun and may involve the promotion of life style and luxury products.
