Don’t take our word for it…

This was the best conference I’ve been to, and I’ve been to many. The range and diversity of sessions, and the fact they were all relatively short, was perfect. The drinks and raffle at the end made a great finale. Don’t change anything!

Martin Briggs-Willis, YHA (England & Wales)

It’s a community. Not just a conference.

Sabina Baba, Head of Marketing, Communications, Society for Experimental Biology

It was one of the best organised conferences I have been to; registration was easy, room announcements and signage were clear, the content, diversity and number of presentations was excellent, and the level/calibre of the delegates was ideal.

Helen Tanner, Patron Membership Manager, London Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Thank you for arranging and hosting the session yesterday, it was really interesting and definitely gave some food for thought.

Anna Maria Foster, Membership & Gift Aid Manager, National Portrait Gallery

I found this seminar very interesting and relevant. It will be the first of many for me! These will only enhance our membership management.

Excellent content and speakers facilitated good discussion and idea generation.

I always look out for their seminars and events, including the annual Harnessing The Web conference which has developed into the go-to-event for membership professionals!

A really good opportunity to share challenges and ideas and learn from each other.

Attendance at the training event provided clear direction.

This was an excellent event. Very informative, with a huge amount of important information delivered in a concise, engaging manner. Thank you!

We found the conference great for awareness building, got some good business opportunities and have already (within 24 hours) had one request for a meeting from a leading memembership body.

There was a really good mix of organisations and I took a few tips away to work into our strategies.
