Drake’s Staff See Benefits of Corporate Membership

03 Apr 2018

Amongst a multitude of other fantastic benefits, Corporate Members are offered the opportunity to enrol their staff on our online ‘Introduction to Alternate Dispute Resolution’ course.

Managing Director Matt Drake was the first to take advantage of this when he enlisted Ben Williamson from his team at Manchester-based Drake Quantity and Surveyors. Ben passed the assessment and now holds his own membership as an Associate of CIArb.

Drake said:

"Membership, whether it be as an Associate, Member or Fellow, of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators demonstrates to all colleagues, clients and peers that you have a comprehensive interest, awareness and competence in the process of dispute resolution. This is integral for demonstrating a commitment to professionalism and excellent customer service in dispute resolution. Therefore, joining the CIArb is advantageous to those seeking to be considered in such lightWe, at Drake QS, would like to join you in congratulating Ben for his achievements and look forward to the continuation of our beneficial relationship with CIArb."

Neil Newman, Director of Communications and Membership, CIArb added:

“We are broadening our relationships as well as aiming to expand our membership ensuring we develop and market our products and services effectively to a diverse audience.  We will be looking to increase capacity through our corporate membership scheme to increase the number of people engaging in CIArb education and training.  We want to attract more people to the realisation that dispute avoidance and management skills are important in business. And we want to help more people get into the dispute resolution profession across the world in economies where we can make a difference. As we grow, we also benefit from scale – the more revenue we generate through growth, the more we are able to enhance our service provision.  Our growth is evidence that we are succeeding”
