What’s the difference between Premier and Corporate membership?

Premier membership offers the same discount structure to members ie 5% on and above a minimum of four individuals for the fee and the same use of the ILP logo (but ILP Premier logo instead ) for marketing purposes.

It also offers a whole host of further marketing benefits and industry participation for companies looking to promote their business to the ILP audiences, namely:

  • – Hosting a CPD presentation at ILP events.
  • – Promotion of CPD material in the ILP newsletter.
  • – Advertorial presence in the LJ-half page every year
  • – A £500 voucher package redeemable on ILP services and events.
  • – An invitation to contribute to ILP National agendas, to be discussed at national forums
  • – A feature on the ILP Premier Membership profile news and innovations web page
  • – Free use of the Regent House training and meeting room facilities with complimentary tea and coffee

It is a highly cost effective marketing package to support Premier members. The overall fee is £2050 with the above mentioned additional services on offer.
