CMI's 75th Anniversary

Join our celebrations as we bring together our Community, reflect and look forward to the future of leadership and recognise the outstanding managers and leaders making an impact today.

Looking to the future

As CMI looks back at our impact over the past 75 years, and how the role and values of professional leaders and managers have changed, we want to understand what is next for Modern Management.

We find ourselves at a crossroads. Over the past two years, issues of fairness, inclusion and equity have been brought to the fore by national events. Looking forwards, economic recovery and the Government’s desire to level up the UK will shape UK workplaces.

Using our members’ experiences and insight from high profile leaders, we will share the practical actions which managers are using today to drive action. At the end of 2022, this project will feed into a major piece of thought leadership.

Sharing Management Expertise

CMI President Lord Mark Price heads up the 18-strong council, sitting alongside some of the UK’s most accomplished CEOs, entrepreneurs, peers, creatives, writers and broadcasters. Over the coming months, the council will conduct ‘deep dives’ into five key areas that the CMI believes need to be addressed if management and leadership opportunities are to be shared by all.
