Associate Membership for Suppliers & Consultants
Resourcing, planning and MI are complex, specialist skills that have become fundamental to the success of today's contact centres. The Professional Planning Forum is the independent European body, promoting best practice and providing specialist training and professional development programmes. Established in March 2000, we are supplier-independent and work across all industry sectors.
Our members use the Forum for best practice events, networking, access to benchmark research and other online resources, expert advice and professional training. We exist to help members share best practice and establish recognised benchmarks that support professional standards of contribution. Members recognise the value of associates' contributions.
