Raising Standards

Key benefits

      • Proactive Support from a Team of Practitioners: Our professional community is recognised as the ‘go-to place’ for innovation in customer operations that not only offers access to best practice and learning but gives “hands on” assistance through membership from our team of practitioners who have skills right across customer operations. As part of your membership with The Forum you will receive regular virtual meetings with our team of practitioners offering support on challenges you are facing within planning, insight, or quality. With a combined experience of over 100 years of experience in customer operations in our leadership and specialist team we are there to deal with any query or challenge and if we don’t have the answer, we have the community over 150 members to reach out to.
      • Three annual conferences: The Forum holds three key conferences taking place in the spring, summer, autumn, and whilst each has a different focus all are committed to 2 things - collaboration and learning. All our conferences are round table events giving the opportunity to network, discuss and collaborate with people from outside of your organisation in an inclusive, safe, and welcoming environment of our community. 
      • Spring: Customer Strategy and Planning. Learn WHY we need to keep “Raising Standards in Customer Operations"
        Our flagship Conference takes place in April for the in-person event with a week of virtual activity taking place in May. This highly rated event is far more than just a conference. Designed specifically to focus on the hot topics within the industry and thought leadership whilst also delivering practical skills with new ways of thinking that will enhance you as a person.
      • Summer: Best Practice Showcase. Learn WHAT our award finalists are doing to keep “Raising Standards in Customer Operations”
        This conference takes place in June for both the In person and virtual events and offers a unique chance for you to learn directly from our Awards winners. You will hear from the teams and individuals who are making a difference in their business, powerful partnerships whether that is with a technology provider or an outsource partnership. Finally, you can discover how large transformation projects have made massive changes in any business.

      • Autumn: Raising Standards. Learn HOW our community is applying “Best Practice”
        This conference takes place every November for the in-person event with a week of virtual activity taking place in October. Designed specifically for Planning, Insight and Quality & Customer Experience Professionals. Learn first-hand from practitioners and business leaders who are delivering successful change whilst having the opportunity to collaborate with others. Bring new ideas and techniques back that will raise standards within your “Customer Operation”.

      • Virtual Network: Attend our virtual network groups, learn from other member's challenges and successes, contribute to the discussion whilst building your personal network and explore new ideas with like-minded professionals.
      • Virtual Leadership Network: This offers access to our small invite only Leadership Group, the group is kept deliberately small to allow us to facilitate deep discussions. Meet business leaders and gain great insight into what other member's challenges and plans have been.
      • Best Practice Guide: Published annually this guide is packed with case studies, research, thought leadership and supplier listings, this is the year-round resource that contains the jewels of the year’s best practice.
