Building consensus on priorities to support ESO's swift expansion of activities
Leveraging the vision, influence and expertise of current leaders whilst harnessing the drive and creating opportunities for the next generation is the essence of association success .

The profession is changing and our value proposition needs to evolve
We need to be relevant and demonstrate value to members around the world
We are under pressure to attract the next generation of members and leaders
Our resources can’t drive the changes needed whilst also delivering our core services
Our conference has become formulaic and needs change without alienating key stakeholders
We surveyed members and implemented their requests but it’s still not enough
Whether you need to catch up, or need to stay ahead, an agile strategy is vital in today’s fast moving world. We build consensus and prepare tangible plans for implementation.
Bring new services or event concepts to market, revitalise your core audience, attract new followers, and connect your content strategy to your story.
We are in daily contact with industry leaders from diverse sectors. We are comfortable interviewing and discussing strategic issues with your stakeholders, analysing and compiling their insights into concise recommendations.
Quality care and responsiveness are fundamental to maintaining your reputation, member retention and positive event experiences.
Listening to, and facilitating dialogue with members seems an obvious priority. Doing it effectively needs a clear focus, insight, and empathy.
Alongside change from the industry or profession, your objectives also evolve. Whether driven by external or internal factors (or both), we can work through complex change management and relate to the human factors in change for members, volunteer leaders and staff.
Technology, legislative, and demographic shifts require constant updating of topics, approaches and formats to keep your educational offerings relevant. We help design programmes aligned to career paths and industry trends.
Sustainability means more than member retention. Tapping into new markets, and creating new means of connecting with industry sponsors is key. We help you map out and deliver effective commercial strategies based on decades of front-line sales experience.
