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


Sector Review 2017

2017's Sector Review is out now!

This year, we focus on supporting the sector. This is particularly timely given the challenges and threats to the professions represented by the recent rise of populism. Professional bodies are the foundation of the professions and need to appreciate their combined strength in order to meet these challenges, as well as continuing to support professionalism in their own sectors.

This edition of the Sector Review aims to encourage appreciation of this combined strength. 

Read contributions from leading organisations including CIPS, APM, CIOT and SCoR.
