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 connect with people by asking you to engage with us. 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.  The global pandemic has created an opportunity to get everyone facing in the same direction, collaborating with a common purpose.

The 4iforum collaborative network expedites the impact of thought leadership and academic research in the business community, responding to societal need, creating opportunities for generating an effective response to emerging business issues.

Engage with 4iforum today to access our network of experts and thought leaders and collaborate with your peers.

The more support we receive from partners, 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.

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."
