AMF News


We are delighted to announce that we are launching a new quarterly forum for AMF members, The Business Improvement Group.

The Business Improvement Group will cover the topics of HR, legal, financial, and risk management.

The quarterly event will be delivered by our sector-expert partners – Ward Hadaway, MHA Tait Walker, Barclays, and Lockton. Each partner will deliver a 15-minute talk on a subject that is relevant to the manufacturing sector, to provide advice and insights to delegates.

The Business Improvement Group will replace the previous Finance Forum and HR Forum. As this is a new event, we would love you to tell us what topics and themes you would like us to cover, and what you want from this forum. Please do share your ideas with us here. 

The inaugural event will be held on the 27th June 2019, 8-10am at Washington Business Centre. We would be delighted if you could join us for some ‘bitesize’ information from our partners and a light breakfast.

Book your place here.
