Corporate company and corporate education members

The benefits AKAM membership can offer are similar to both kinds of organisation, but we recognise there are differences.

AKAM offers Corporate members a great range of benefits and support, in addition to the benefits available to their individual members (detailed on the Individual membership page):

  • access to the AKAM website and Member Resource Centre for all employees, including member webinars
  • 2 named members of the KAM Programme Directors Forum for peer experience sharing in person 1xpa & 5xpa remotely
  • 6 free places at all workshops and the annual conference (normally 3 workshops/conference pa & 3 AKAM Technical ‘classes’)
  • membership of AKAM’s Board: you will be invited, but not obliged, to be involved in AKAM’s development and research
  • certification of one development programme v AKAM Diploma competencies + advice on 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
  • opportunity to display the 'AKAM corporate member' logo on your print and electronic media
  • display of your organisation’s logo on the ‘Corporate membership’ page on the website and others
  • opportunity to put materials in workshop/conference packs once per year
  • opportunity to deliver a workshop/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
* For corporate education members, these benefits are superceded by the college's internal assessment of students of the Diploma by Study, with free external monitoring by AKAM of 20% of candidates.


Programme Directors' Forum

The Programme Directors' Forum will be a confidential, peer discussion group facilitated by qualified AKAM Board Members, whose agenda would be dictated by questions and issues input by you, its members. Otherwise, where do you go when you need advice, new ideas or changes in direction? Consultants, of course, but do you have access to one whenever you need support? The Forum represents a rare opportunity to exchange practical solutions for people in the often challenging position of securing and progressing their companies’ KAM practices.

As a member of the Programme Directors' Forum, you would be asked before the bimonthly meeting what aspects or issues you would like it to address. That gives time for AKAM experts to explore relevant sources to contribute to the session, and fellow members to consider what experience and information they can bring to the discussion. AKAM experts would get the meeting started with any relevant research/tools/materials they have and facilitate the discussion, including  actions, research or follow-up wanted by the Forum.

You will build a valuable personal network.and benefit from the advice and experience of seasoned practitioners and also others likely to be at a similar stage of KAM development, who will empathise with your needs.





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 [email protected]  initially to set up a call or meeting.
