If I am a Silver member does this mean I get access to all online content?
Yes. As a Silver member you are able to watch our sessions live and put questions to the panel, however if you miss these you also have access to our webinar portal. This contains content going back to January 2020, you can see the list of what is available on catch up by clicking here.
Are there limits on how many of my colleagues can attend your sessions?
For online events there is no limit, you can bring as many people as you like! For in person “Destination” events there is a limit of three attendees per company (if we are able to run any in person events this year these will be Destination Events; further will be sent to you about these limits then).
How do my team sign in?
We are sure you appreciate that we need to control who is accessing our content to ensure it is fair for the whole community. For live events we operate a “one person one seat” policy, meaning if somebody else signs in using your profile they will not be able to access the live session. The good news is that you can create as many additional profiles as you would like on the website for your team! You can get them set up by sending them to the following page (click here).
What does the Silver package cost?
Retaining your Silver Membership will cost only £250 + VAT per company for the remainder of 2021. We have an early bird offer for prompt payment which reduces this further. Full details of this will be sent to you when our payment portal is open in early February.
What is the early bird offer and who is it open to?
The early bird discount for renewing your Silver Membership by midnight on 12th March 2021 is 20%, making your membership £200 + VAT. This discount will automatically be applied when you checkout. On and after 1st April, membership will increase to £250 + VAT.
Anybody can take advantage of the early bird offer, whether they are a returning or new member. Feel free to share this offer with any friends who you think may be interested!
How do I pay?
The easiest way to pay for your membership is online by card. Details of this will be sent to your companies primary contact in early February.
We can raise a pro-forma invoice but the additional processing charges associated mean there is an additional £50 cost to your membership.
Who needs to pay?
If you are the companies primary contact you can log in and manage this. If you are an additional contact (this will have been noted on the email that brought you here) we will have included who your primary contact is within this email. If this information is incorrect please click here and update our records as soon as possible to ensure you are able to make payment early and take advantage of our early bird offer.
What happens if I pay for Silver Membership after March the 31st 2021?
You can upgrade at any time between the payment portal opening in early February (you will be notified when this happens) and the end of 2021. However, the subscription fee will remain the same throughout this period so you will gain more benefits by retaining your Silver membership early, especially if you take advantage of the early bird offer.
If you do not wish to upgrade to a Silver Membership your membership will change to our free Bronze level, you can find out what this involves by clicking here.
