At the heart of Devonshire House are senior decision makers keen to discover and explore original thinking and information generated from all the Events we promote.

We all think that this makes us better business managers, better at managing those who work for and with us and benefits those who come under our influence. This is generated from the Events we promote, which in turn supports both our members and those who have an instinctive focus on the human side of enterprise.

We are very proud of our long list of influential national leaders who have spoken to us at Devonshire House. Browse through our annual programmes going back several years.
