The main features and commercial and non-commercial benefits are outlined in this table below:



1. ABP membership – employer of choice

The ABP is a professional body.  Members are able to use the designated letters: MABP after their name We also have ‘Practitioner’ and ‘Principle Practitioner’ levels. Annual membership is currently £55 + VAT per year.

Any employee whom you nominate will become an ABP member.  The value of employees being able to add ‘ABP member’ to their CV and to attend a series of skill or knowledge development events is a real selling point and demonstrates your commitment to being an employer of choice, as well as demonstrating your respect for intellectual stimulation and ongoing career development.  You will also have the ability to advertise jobs on the ABP website for free. These are then further shared via social media.

2. Free entry to speaker events


Our monthly speaker events are an excellent opportunity to learn some of the latest thoughts and research in the business psychology and consumer psychology spheres.  They also offer a good opportunity to network.  These are good events to share and demonstrate your commitment to ongoing learning and thought leadership.  Ticket prices for members = £10, non-members = £25 per head. 

3. Workshop attendance


Our workshops are engaging, dynamic and delivered by professionals whose credentials and reputations are established.  The 2016 programme offers a mixture of evening workshops, day long events and webinars.  Non-member costs to attend day long workshops: £395.

Member rates: £125. 

(Typical CIPD run workshops are £600)

In addition, the ABP can offer to run exclusive in house events for your members, charged at cost by the trainer.

4. 10% discount to attend any other ABP event

We run an annual conference and awards event.  Your corporate membership would entitle your members to a 10% discount on these and any other events.

5. Media and spokesperson contact

We occasionally receive requests from the media for comment and by having you as a corporate member, we can ensure we place you on the list of spokespeople to be contacted.  Please note however, journalists are invariably last minute so requests are not guaranteed to be timely!

Having a central contact within your organisation to whom we can direct all offers, calls for papers, submissions for awards and so on, ensures your entire organisation have the opportunity to participate 

6. Appearance on ABP website

Inclusion of your logo on a page to be developed for our corporate members. 

7. Right to use the ABP corporate logo on marketing materials

An external statement to customers and employees of your commitment to understanding and applying best practise psychology in business.

8. Academic support

Many organisations benefit from the development of white papers and support from the academic world in terms of evidence based practise.  We accredit 8 business and consumer psychology masters courses.  Where we can, we will introduce and help provide support from our course director community to enable you to achieve more research credibility around your corporate goals/aims and objectives.  The £1,000 only becomes chargeable if an appropriate match to your interests are found and you and the partnering University mutually agree the output.  The legwork in investigating this and finding the professor/tutor to partner with you is offered for free by the ABP on the basis of your corporate membership. 

9. The option to host a breakfast or lunch forum

The chance to hear from peer and competitor organisations in a safe environment.  The ABP will contact other ABP members or members from our immediate community and where appropriate academic thought leaders and other industry leaders.  We estimate we’d be successful in ensuring 15-20 people attend.

For the purpose of clarity, the ABP would offer to contact people and provide the administrative support. You would cover the costs of hosting (many organisations have their own internal meeting rooms).
