Our annual Professional Body Sector Reviews help define the sector in its own right, focusing on its distinctiveness, challenges and trends. 

The publications deliver unique insight for all those working and volunteering in the sector, whether they are leading the way in organisational strategy or implementing sector knowledge at ground level.

"A thumping good read!"

Helen Brand, CEO of ACCA Global and contributor to the Sector Review

“Professional bodies share so much in common, and yet come in infinite permutations.
The Review gives you instant access to so much information - a snapshot of the sector.”

Alison Richmond, CEO of Icon and contributor to the Sector Review

Sector Review 2018

2018's Sector Review is out now!

This year, we focus on sector challenges and opportunities. It is essential that professional bodies continue to be regarded as relevant and valuable for practicing professionals both in terms of their career prospects and the value they provide through the quality of their services as supported by professional standards. This becomes particularly challenging in the current era of rapid technological advancement, including the expected rise of AI applications to professional work, and the continuing threat of populism against the credibility of expertise.

Read contributions from leading organisations including CII, ACCA and APM.
