The Ditchley Foundation organizes approximately ten to twelve conferences annually, each striving to improve policy approaches and problem-solving on complex issues of international concern. Ditchley conferences facilitate more precise policy-making, better understanding of global issues and more effective operational diplomacy.

Most conferences are held at Ditchley Park, providing a unique environment in which to bring together 40 to 45 experts from a variety of professions—academics, policy-makers, practitioners and others—to consider pressing problems of global concern and explore new approaches to solving them. Conferences are by invitation only.

In addition to conferences, since 1972 The Ditchley Foundation has traditionally hosted an Annual Lecture at Ditchley Park delivered by a distinguished individual from public life.
