Benefits of Devonshire House Network Membership

Devonshire House has updated its membership Programme as at 1.11.20

In presenting the case for Devonshire House Membership, we probably need to repeat – maybe in slightly different ways – information that appears in other parts of this website.  New members need to assess what they are likely to get out of Devonshire House membership, if they are the right sort of person to derive benefit and enjoyment, what is involved and how much it will cost.

  • 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. 
  • Membership is targeted at this broad group.
  • Peer group thinking – learning, sharing and contributing – is important and a strong Devonshire House focus.
  • Our purpose is to create, for our members, thinking time and space for key business issues and where people make the difference.
  • To actively participate in Elbow Room Events networking – and create a meaningful personal network………….. meeting new similar-level people ….. and keeping in touch
  • Events delivered as a mix of online and live Events.
  • Enjoy a full calendar of events throughout the year,

Our members discover more about enterprises and how the effectiveness of their people can be nurtured and grown.


Devonshire House offers the following membership options:-

  • Individual Membership
  • Premium Membership
  • Corporate Membership
  • Partner Membership 

DHN exists for the benefit of its Stakeholders. These are:-

  • Members
  • Partner Firms
  • Speakers and past Speakers

We also go out of our way to benefit Members Guests and our Speakers where mutual opportunities arise.

  • Our financial aim is to cover our operational and development costs.
  • Many Partner Members see DHN as an extension of their own marketing capability and activities.  They may well organise their own Events – but joining forces with Devonshire House for specific Events saves them the bother and enables them to meet new potential clients/ customers outside their normal range and in different settings and enjoy profile Speakers who may not have been on their own radars.
  • These are the Devonshire House Event Streams:–
  • Core Mainstream Events – Online or Live; (Type and format varies – please do have a lot at our previous Speakers and formats. Our commitment is to maintain this range and format and standing of our Speakers.
  • Elbow Room Events – as many as we can to support demand – high-level networking.

The intention is that Members will enjoy their DHN experience – more so if they meet a balanced cross section of peer group senior managers and in whose company they feel comfortable and with whom they may be able to expand their own body of knowledge about our working world.

People join Devonshire House for a range of reasons – mostly commercial.  A nicety that reflects our style is this quaint and inherited mantra – We are all open for business but being spotted selling is seen as bad manners”!

At Devonshire House Network – we are Director-level professionals in leadership roles who have an instinctive focus on the human side of enterprise. We are hungry for knowledge; for ideas; for insights; for clues about the future – and also to keep up with people we know and, of course, to meet new people.
