18th June 2024


The SBC Leaders Forum is the opportunity for the community of Small Business Charter Award holding schools to come together to discuss how business schools can leverage the SBC to engage SMEs and drive student recruitment and employability.

The inaugural SBC Leaders Forum takes place at BMA House in London on the morning of 18 June 2024.

At this year's gathering we will explore two key themes for the community:

  • Taking small business support to the next level and the future of Help to Grow: Management

  • How the SBC drives student recruitment and graduate employability

Attendance at the SBC Leaders forum is restricted to senior staff from SBC Award Holding schools and by invitation only.
