Question: Why choose MemberWise?
Answer: Because we ‘walk the talk’ rather than just ‘talk’ it. Take a look at our  high profile case studies…

We are truly unique as our Associates have actually conducted senior management and leadership roles within a range of member facing functions within leading membership organisations and associations.

The team is led by MemberWise Network Chair, Richard Gott, who has over 20 years leadership experience within the sector. Over the past 10 years Richard has brought together over 4,500+ membership organisation and association professionals to drive the sector forward. This unique role has enabled a deep understanding of what best-practice looks like and how it can be implemented in a robust manner.

Richard Gott
Richard GottAssociation Expert & Membership Sector Thought Leader
Richard is Founder and Chair of the popular association and membership professional network, MemberWise, and Chair of the CPD Standards Office (CPDSO) Independent Expert Advisory Board.

Rich has worked within the association and membership organisation sector for over 18 years and has held senior leadership roles within a range of high profile bodies including:

British Dental Association (BDA), College of Optometrists (COO), National Assessment Agency (NAA), Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA), Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors (CIEA), Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) and The Law Society (TLS).

Richard’s achievements include growing RCGP’s membership from 40,000 to 50,000 members in less than 3 years (generating a supplementary £16m in annual subscription income), reviewing and restructuring the RCPsych and Law Society’s regional structures and creating the RCPsych’s 3 year strategy/plan (in association with the Chief Executive).

Rich is a true advocate of professionalising the membership and association sector and he is known for ‘walking the talk’ with a ‘no nonsense approach’ from a membership development perspective!

More recently Rich provides advisory services for a range of high profile membership organisations (see case study page) and works hard to ensure the network is the ‘go to’ resource for membership/association professionals.
