Thriving membership organisations put member needs front & centre of what they do and how they think. These are the organisations who base their strategy on the three cornerstones of: Recruitment - Retention - Relationships.
Build and nurture relationships to influence opinion and change behaviour.
Put members front & centre of everything you do to increase recruitment and retention.

You work for a membership organisation and want someone who understands the sensitivities of working alongside volunteers and the intricacies of representing members.
You want someone who understands and speaks the same language as your board / council / senior management team and is not afraid to stand their ground when they think a decision will adversely affect the reputation of your organisation.
You have a specific project or a resource shortfall and are looking for an experienced PR professional.
I am that person. I am one of a small band of PR consultants who understand membership organisations, understand public relations and importantly, how to make the two work together.
If you have a short-term requirement, I provide a senior-level interim solution. This is usually on a part-time basis, but if you require full-time cover, please enquire as my availability is dependent on other client commitments at the time.
Do you have a one-off project to be completed independent of your in-house team? Need a communications strategy for an initiative? An audit of a client's communications activity? Perhaps a project to be managed / delivered?
I take on executive (and non-executive) director roles and act as a sounding board for decisions with an eye on how they will impact your organisational reputation and relationships.
You may need an extra pair of hands for tactical delivery of a project. Your need may be for copywriting, social media content, staff training, brainstorm facilitating.
Contact me to kick things off - have a chat about your recruitment, retention, relationships, reputation and results.
RT @CIPRNORTHWEST You’d be amazed at what you can count towards your #cpd log. Blogs, vlogs, learning at work - it doesn’t have to be CIPR accredited to earn you points. Log your bespoke activities via the @CIPR_UK CPD portal: cipr.co.uk/content/cpd
RT @RobYeldham @CHParkPhysio @paulawoods5 Interesting question but perhaps one for patients and employers as much as practitioners? I am a chartered public relations practitioner which is nice for me, but it is also something my employer values, presumably as evidence of commitment to professional and ethical practice.
