Professional Body Sector Review

Insightful Annual Publications for the Sector

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
