The D Group Briefing programme at 23 Grafton St in Mayfair is the most visible manifestation of who we are and historically the reason why The D Group is best known.
The programme involves;
- The ‘Open’ programme (open to all members)
- The ‘Bespoke’ programme (briefings commissioned by one member to involve a hand-picked list of actual or intended stakeholders or customers)
- Special, C-level discussion groups on items of particularly pressing or industry-wide importance. Examples would be AI, IT, Diversity, Cyber and Brexit.
In a typical year some 70 ‘Open’ briefings will be held, usually conforming to a tried and tested formula, featuring expert speakers and subjects where the membership or material parts of it have a strong, collective interest.
Whilst attendance of the briefings is by no means a pre-requisite of accessing ‘D’s connections and network, it offers an excellent opportunity for C-level to congregate around a particular subject, discuss it openly and collaboratively amongst themselves and with the guest speaker, and convey a particular corporate position or create new relationships.
