About The Circle Society

Our industry is changing. Skill sets and team dynamics are changing, people are on the move, and we have too many jobs and not enough people to fill them.

The Circle Society’s mission is to help navigate the changes in our industry through a program of education and collaboration to ensure that the Media and Entertainment Industry continues to thrive and grow.

Designed specifically for the people within our industry members benefit from a program of activity delivered in a unique and trusted environment. Our aim is to encourage personal growth, confidence, and the opportunity to create change.

Although focused on people, we also work with organisations where our aim, is to promote those striving forward with their internal cultures, investing in their people, setting the standards ensuring they are recognised as attractive places to work within the industry.
