The Progressive Professionals Forum (PPF) was launched in August 2013 in Johannesburg , South Africa . The PPF was established  because it was felt that:

  1. The Intellectual power base of South Africa is grossly under-utilised.
  2. We acknowledge that the middle class is not contributing as much as it is capable of & as often as it should towards building our country and developing its people .
  3. Diversity of opinions are more effective in an inclusive framework.
  4. We believe other professionals bodies are more developmental in nature and inward cussed and are therefore restricted with regard to the role that they can play in society at large.


The PPF therefore is primarily a body of multi-disciplinary progressive professionals who have come together and who are ready and willing to contribute towards the growth of our society and our country. The PPF is a volunteer corpse in the spirit of the 1960’s and the Defiance Campaign.
