🗞️ Hot News 🗞️

Financial Times 1000

Okay, this one’s a real “pinch-me” moment for us at Community-Led Alliance. 🥺

We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that the Financial Times has ranked our parent company, The Alliance, 42nd among Europe’s 1000 fastest-growing companies. 🎉

It’s truly humbling to see our hard work pay off with an acknowledgment like this. 

Cast your mind back to 2019, The Alliance was a tiny team of big-dreamers embarking on our first foray into community-led L&D with Product Marketing Alliance

Fast-forward just five years, and things are looking a hell of a lot different.

💪 We’re now 15 communities strong
🌎 We host 130+ events per year across the globe
🫂 We’ve gone from a staff of just two to a workforce of 121 

Scaling certainly ain’t easy, especially during the challenging market conditions of the last two years.  But it’s not the numbers that matter here. 

All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the unwavering support from our incredible community members and team of dedicated employees. This is all down to you. 

We’re living proof that the world needs communities and people who believe in and support each other. And community-led growth? Well, it’s the future, baby!

Thank you for the recognition, FT1000, we can't wait to show what else is in store.
