The AFB CEO programme provides strategic thought leadership aimed at informing senior bankers and facilitating access for them at the highest levels of influence. This is achieved via an exclusive and carefully curated programme of events with some of the most important banking stakeholders in the UK. All events are held under the Chatham House Rule to promote open and confidential discussions.

The AFB CEO programme is strictly for GMs/CEOs, limited to 30 participants. We invite applications from all AFB members and acceptance onto the programme is at the discretion of the AFB.

In 2023, the AFB CEO Programme is once again offering a varied series of thought leadership sessions. The events are planned to be held in person affording the opportunity for attendees to further grow relationships amongst peers within the AFB membership network. Further details on the 2023 programme are available in the brochure below. Registrations are now shut for the 2023 sessions, but if you have any further queries please email

We are delighted that BCLP (Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner) will once again support this programme with their expertise, insight and sponsorship.  BCLP is one of only a few law firms which house their contentious and non-contentious financial regulatory teams together alongside their financial services litigation, corporate crime and white-collar expertise.
