Professional Services Network


The Professional Services Network (PSN) is for EMCC’s Premium Organisation Members in professional services and banking. It offers an inspiring and creative environment for organisations to come together to consider strategic, business and practical matters across the full range of mentoring and coaching topics.

Founded in 2005, the PSN is made up of like-minded leaders of coaches and mentors who gather to learn, share and develop best practice, with the aim of generating innovative ideas to take back into their own organisations. Meetings are generally hosted by members in Central London.

If you are interested in joining the PSN, please contact Andrew Gange or Rita Symons.
