Learn, connect, lead.

Formed in 2013 to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Financial Times, The 125 offers high level leadership programmes and networking opportunities, bringing together FT journalists and global business leaders.

The convening power of the FT means leading experts are keen to share their knowledge and join our live discussions. FT journalists use their unparalleled expertise to explain the most significant business developments, challenge expert thinking and encourage debate.

The 125 Senior Executive Forum connects business leaders; providing a community for innovative thinking, and a platform for knowledge exchange. Aiming to challenge members’ strategic mindsets, this forum stimulates fresh thinking about the biggest financial, business, economic and political issues of the day.

The 125 Women’s Forum accelerates mid-career level women into positions of senior leadership. Members are able to exchange experiences and expertise from peers in a variety of business sectors in a confidential environment. Membership of the Women’s Forum helps companies develop their future female leaders, working towards real change in gender-related pay disparity in the workplace.

The FT 125 doesn’t tell me what to think but it does tell me what I should be thinking about. Sometimes it’s enabled me to think about things 12 months ahead. I would not have done that without The FT 125.
