About Intent Member Meetings

  • Capped attendance (to maintain a private and safe setting for genuine sharing)

  • Private, by-invitation only, Chatham House Rules

  • Cross-sector, Director level, pre-profiled (all attendees receive full details on participating members)

  • Mutually agreed 121 meetings based on common interests (no obligation or pressure)

  • Our six Advisory Partners host roundtable discussions to ensure productive conversations

Concurrent roundtable discussions

​The SIX roundtable discussions are concurrent / simultaneous and they run FOUR times during the day so members choose their top four discussions to participate in.

Members submit questions and agenda points and we work with the discussion hosts to tailor the agendas for participants. Each member receives a personalised agenda with the times of each of their chosen discussions. No competing companies are scheduled on the same session.

121 meetings

​We schedule member-to-member and member-to-partner 121 meetings for all attendees (that wish to). These meetings are based on common interests and are agreed in advance. There is no obligation to attend any meeting that is not of interest.

What else?

Each meeting also includes two or more of:

  • Member viewpoint/experience sharing: a member shares a short, honest review of a recent project or improvement made in their business, with a focus on 'lessons learned'.

  • Expert Q&A: we invite a subject-matter expert on an important theme for our members and then invite them to ask whatever they want.

  • Leadership "refreshers": knowing what to do is only half the battle...our members then need to make things happen! We invite inspirational coaches to equip our members with new tools and ideas to help them realise their goals.

  • Something totally different: we invite interesting and unusual non-industry luminaries whose insights and experiences can provoke tired assumptions and stimulate new thinking.

  • Rapport-building activities: we end each meeting with some fun stuff so that you make new friends, not just new contacts.

On hearing about the Intent Group proposition, it was of immediate appeal to me. We’re a billion dollar business, and I’ve worked in supply chain over 25 years. For us, it’s the perfect platform to collaborate, see if others share our beliefs about the future of agile supply chain, and to have more useful touchpoints outside of our business” NL
