What do current members say about membership?

“An amazingly good value for money network and the Chief Executive, Stephen Isherwood, has led the organisation through a noticeable quantum leap in relation to the sophistication in thought-leadership themes to help the membership engage with the challenges we all face addressing the development of the employability talent-pipeline between universities and employers."
