Professional associations and membership bodies

Helping organizations to transform and enhance the value they bring to their customers and members

“Professional associations and membership bodies need to innovate to remain relevant and responsive to customer and member demands. Transformational change may be necessary, but can feel complex and challenging to achieve. Berkeley can help organizations adopt the best structure, strategy, practices and technology to achieve a step-change in delivery.”

Many professional associations and membership bodies must undertake transformational change.

They recognize the need to stay competitive and deliver a better value proposition in an increasingly digital and agile world. But developing, mobilizing and managing this change can be challenging and complex. As transformation specialists, Berkeley can help. 

Consultants to help you refresh your strategy

The services expected of professional associations and membership bodies – and the industries they represent – are changing at speed. To keep up with this pace of change, these organizations must undergo significant transformation.

Our consultants can partner with you to develop business strategies that improve performance, and ensure your market positioning, service offer and service delivery model remain relevant in a digital age. Working by your side, we can help you adopt best practice and redefine your customer and member proposition, enhancing the value you bring to your community.

Consultants to enable digital transformation without losing heritage and tradition

From moving your offerings online to getting real insight from your data, our consultants can help you make the most of the latest technology, take a generational leap in your capabilities, and set you up to engage and grow your community long into the future.

While change can be crucial to an organization’s ongoing mission, we also understand that professional associations and membership bodies need to preserve the best of their heritage and traditions. While our consultants can help you innovate and evolve, we will also focus on maintaining what makes your organization special.

Consultants to facilitate networking and best practice adoption

From our transformation work with professional associations and membership bodies across different sectors and industries, we’ve found that there are many common themes and challenges. We’ve seen that it’s not always easy for senior leadership teams to access networking and learning outside of their specific industry.

As part of our service, we offer exclusive roundtable events for professional associations and membership bodies, allowing senior leaders to network and share learnings and best practice in a non-competitive environment.

Consultants acting as trusted partners to professional associations and membership bodies

Berkeley consultants have a breadth and depth of cross-sector knowledge and experience, that we use to shape and develop solutions that are right for you. 

Our consultants take a holistic and cohesive approach, and can understand the implications of change in one area of your organization and what that means for another. We’re highly experienced with the kind of complex, large-scale transformation that professional associations and membership bodies often need to undertake, but typically have never done before. We’re not afraid to adapt our approach when required as a programme evolves. 

Working as your trusted partners, we always focus on the ultimate outcomes that the organization wants to achieve.

Berkeley turned a struggling program into a valuable asset. Key to this achievement has been their complete independence, allowing them to deliver the best outcome for the organization; their turnaround skills that enabled them to find and fix the fundamental issues affecting progress; and the way in which they just [became] part of the team, inspiring all to raise their game and think creatively and collaboratively... They have been game changers.”
