Corporate Member Spotlight: Martin Bloor of Brabners LLP discusses the benefits of JCI Manchester Corporate MembershipFebruary 3, 2015 2:03 pm Leave your thoughts
Having only joined Brabners last year, I am still probably considered rather a green curiosity around the office. I don’t know anywhere near everyone’s name and, having mastered the internal computer systems at two previous law firms, I must admit starting afresh means that my day-to-day tasks regularly feel a little like relearning to ride a bike. However, ignoring my oaf-like interactions with computer systems and regular remonstrations with the photocopier, there are certainly many positives.
An area in which Brabners has surpassed my expectations is in support it has provided to enable me to expand my network of contacts. Despite not being a silver-haired stalwart, I have been encouraged to simply ‘go out and meet people’ as regularly as I can. Whilst my liver could probably be in better shape, the support I have been provided with has been fantastic and I am certain will pay dividends both for me and for Brabners in coming years.
The Firm’s Corporate Membership of JCI has, of course, played a key role. For organisations willing to invest in its people and afford them the trust and freedom to go out and bring in work, I consider JCI Corporate Membership to be a sound investment for the future. However, the benefits are not only limited to reducing the number of invoices for various networking and training events. As a Corporate Member, Brabners is given first refusal on future hosting seminars and events so that the firm can directly target JCI’s large and diverse membership – an opportunity which I consider to be worth taking given that those individuals conscientious enough to attend such events will likely be the same individuals which, in the coming years, will become clients and referrers of work to the firm.
JCI Corporate Membership is priced at £500 per annum and entitles members to send three individuals to JCI training and social events as well as reduced costs for charitable events, representing a saving of around £150 per annum on the standard cost of JCI events. Preference is also given for event hosting, seminars and table bookings for the Manchester Young Talent Awards.
