Leadership Council

TheCityUK’s Leadership Council brings together a cross-sectoral group of the most senior leaders from the industry. The Council approves our strategy and its members lead on major programmes of work.

The Leadership Council (formally known as the Advisory Council) works alongside the Board of Directors to ensure that we achieve our objectives and meet the demands of our members.
