Corporate company and corporate education members

To some extent, the benefits AKAM membership can offer are similar to both kinds of organisation, but we recognise the differences. In addition to the benefits available to individual members, corporate members generally also have:

  • access to the AKAM website and Member Resource Centre for all employees
  • up to 6 free places at all workshops and the annual conference (additional places available for a fee)
  • membership of AKAM’s Board: a representative will be invited, but not obliged, to join the Board, to be involved in AKAM’s development and research
  • free certification of one development programme v AKAM Diploma competencies and access to advice on conforming to certification requirements
  • free registration of 3 candidates for the AKAM Diploma by Experience*
  • 20% discount off AKAM Diploma by Experience assessment fees*
  • first access to AKAM sponsored research results prior to publication
  • display of the 'AKAM corporate member' logo on print and electronic media
  • display of your organisation’s logo on the ‘Corporate membership’ page on the website and on the ‘Next event’ page once per year
  • opportunity to put materials in workshop/conference packs once per year
  • opportunity to deliver a workshop or conference session on a subject relevant to the theme once per year
  • opportunity to contribute attributed resource materials to the website, e.g. expert video/ KAM tool/ KAM paper (aligned with KAM best practice)
* For corporate education members, these benefits are superceded by the college's internal assessment of students of the Diploma by Study, with free external monitoring by AKAM of 20% of candidates.


We are a flexible organisation, happy to consider different kinds of support and partnership while maintaining our professional independence. Please contact us to discuss how you would like to use a membership: email  initially to set up a call or meeting.
