Access to thought leaders

We facilitate meaningful dialogue for business leaders

4iforum developed from a desire to find an effective response to the organisational world being turned upside down.

Our proposition is simple: We invite you to pay for our services by ‘giving to give’.

There are no set subscription fees and seat fees, instead we ask you to support the 4iforum learning community.

As one of our corporate patrons you can sign up to guarantee seats at our forums.  As an individual sponsor you can pay what you like for access to our sponsor benefits.

The more support we receive from patrons and sponsors, the more forums we can schedule, and the more seats we can give away to people and organisations who really need them.

You can even support the leadership team from another organisation that would benefit from a new perspective.

Our goal is to give away a million free forum seats by the end of 2021.

We invite you to take part. Help others as you help yourself. We believe that our economy will only be as strong as the weakest link, so if we help each other, we’ll recover sooner. Everyone benefits from businesses succeeding, and together, we have knowledge and expertise that can help others

Watch our video - dialogue versus discussion

4iforum has been created with the belief that if we lift all organisations up everyone benefits.  We want to help leaders to learn how to question in a deep way and develop a framework of analysis to empower their leadership and create momentum.

"The questioning framework at the beginning enabled us to explore and set our own agenda which was then facilitated at high level through to conclusions."
Thought Forum
