Probably the best value-for-money KAM consultancy you can get!

As a member of the Programme Directors Forum, you have the opportunity to share what aspects or issues you would like to be addressed prior to the bi-monthly meetings. AKAM experts then explore relevant sources to contribute to the session, and fellow members can consider what experience and information they can bring to the discussion.  AKAM experts guide the meeting, provide the relevant research, tools and materials and facilitate the discussion, including actions, research or follow-up wanted by the Forum.

Through this, you will build a valuable personal network and benefit from the advice and experience of seasoned practitioners along with peers likely to be at a similar stage of KAM development, who will empathise with your needs.

The Programme Directors’ Forum is a confidential peer discussion group facilitated by qualified AKAM Board Members, whose agenda is dictated by questions and issues raised by its members. The Forum presents a rare opportunity to exchange practical solutions for people in the often challenging position of securing and progressing their companies’ KAM practices.
