Managing Partners is an exhibition that explores the nature of professional partnerships. Some partnerships are hidden, whereas others are more obvious, but each of us has a professional bond with someone we rely on.

Devised in conjunction with the business magazine Management Today, and sponsored by BT, this exhibition explores the variety and importance of the special relationships we have at work.

The intimacy of successful collaboration is captured on camera by three of Britain’s leading portrait photographers – Jillian Edelstein, Tom Miller and Dudley Reed – and celebrates the continuing innovative and award-winning style of Management Today.
