Retail FD Forum

The Retail FD Forum is an exclusive network for FDs and CFOs within the retail industry run by BDO with co-partner, Lloyds.

Throughout the year we deliver a series of events, providing up to date information on topical issues and sector trends. The Forums are informal in style and include breakfast seminars, social events and an annual conference and dinner.


We are busy organising our programme of events for 2017, so watch this space for more events later in the year.
