"..an instinctive focus on the human side of Enterprise."

Devonshire House Network

Devonshire House is a people-focused membership club for Director-level professionals in leadership roles
who have an instinctive focus on the human side of enterprise.

Our purpose, at Devonshire House, is to create for our members thinking time and space for key business issues, and where people make the difference.

Delivered primarily through our broad range of high-level Speaker Events, Director Forums, DHN Debates and peer-to-peer networking, our Members and Members’ guests discover more about organisations and how the effectiveness of their people can be nurtured and grown.

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.

Devonshire House exists for the benefit of its Stakeholders. These are Partner Firms, Sponsors, Reciprocal Arrangements, Corporate Members and Personal Members– and to these, Devonshire House seeks to offer another route to market. We also go out of our way to benefit Members Guests and our Speakers where mutual opportunities arise. Our aim is to cover our operations and development costs.

Here we publish more substantive material – which we refer to as Occasional Papers – and which arise out of our Events and Talks or otherwise through our Members – broadly in tune with our purpose:
