What We Do
Since its inception in 1990 Cityforum has specialised in two areas, namely:
a) devising and hosting specialised events, mostly of a ’round table’ character on a range of economic, practical, technological and social policy themes that are of concern to governmental organisations, companies and third sector bodies.
b) undertaking bespoke research and advisory work for official bodies, corporates and charities to provide:
- Public sector guidance and advice on policy, strategy, procedures, efficiency and communications.
- Independent reviews and evaluation using our particular analytical skills and interviewing capability.
- Corporate advisory work for firms seeking public sector contracts and new business collaborations.
Following its inaugural Adam Smith Bicentenary event held with the Scottish Government in 1990, Cityforum has retained an interest in economic policy, banking, regulation and trade. Its interests grew quickly and defence, security, cyber, policing, CNI, energy, health and social care and privacy are all areas where we provide analysis, guidance and forums for rigorous discussion of issues, including wicked problems that appear to defy solution.
