About Publishing

The recipient of a PPA Award for publishing excellence, FIRST was established in 1984 to enhance communication between leaders in industry, finance and government at the strategic level. FIRST brings together the ideas and opinions of the global leadership community in special publications.

FIRST publishing comprises four activities: FIRST Magazine, Special Reports, Specialist Publications and Books.

FIRST, the publication for the world's leadership community, comprises articles by, and interviews with government and business leaders and focuses on long term strategic issues. In addition, a comprehensive range of sector and regional reports are produced in co-operation with governments and leading organisations. Specialist publications are also produced in partnership with professional associations, major companies, NGOs and supranational organisations. FIRST books reflect the views and experiences of government leaders.
