Founded in 2002, Gloucestershire Professionals is a group of volunteers representing professional institutes and membership bodies in Gloucestershire.

We share the common objective of helping the county’s business communities, public, voluntary and education sectors to share information, expertise and knowledge as well as ‘best-practice’ through our network of several thousand members.

Volunteer representatives from each body meet regularly to share knowledge, news, institute-specific events and plan the annual conference. New member institutes are welcome to join the group at any time.

The group is responsible for Growing Gloucestershire, a not-for-profit conference run annually, aimed at educating, ‘growing’ and sharing knowledge and fostering relationships.

Growing Gloucestershire Annual Conference

This well-received conference, which has been running since 2003, brings together a wide business community skill set under one roof for one day a year. It attracts hundreds of people and provides the perfect platform for sharing ideas, expertise, good practice and networking with all business sizes.

Anyone can attend – you do not need to be a member of an institute or professional body.

The 12 conference seminars are split into four themes; financial management, marketing, management and people. The conference will also have two keynote speakers and a panel Q&A session.

Four institutes, TheChartered Institute of Management Accountants, Chartered Institute of Marketing, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, and the Chartered Management Institute, are the driving force behind the conference which, in 2017, is co-chaired by marketers Luan Wise and Felicity McClintock.
