The IBP programme sets the scene for a unique collaboration: where business leaders and policy makers meet world class researchers to exchange learning and insights.

To remain at the pinnacle of academia, enterprise and industry, organisations need to constantly seek out new ways to collaborate, share knowledge and exchange insights. Imperial Business Partners provides your organisation with a forum designed to keep us both at the top. 

As a member you will tackle shared strategic issues through thought-provoking dialogue and inspirational networking.

Our Executive Insights dinners are attended by board-level individuals from our members' organisations.  Chief Scientists, Heads of Global Operations, Strategic Marketing Directors, CEOs, MDs, and Directors are just some of the people you can expect to meet. 

You will benefit from an annual programme of events, as well as access to professional development, and Imperial’s world-renowned research expertise.  In addition, our external website provides regular updates and tailor-made content.

If you would like to know more, or to join, please contact Julia Zanghieri.
