Companion benefits

Companionship is the highest level of CMI membership. The benefits reflect the standing and status of Companions, in terms of networking, prestige and influence.

Exclusive networking

There are opportunities for high-level networking, bringing you into contact with eminent leaders from all walks of life who value “Companionship” in every sense of the word.  Events are typically roundtable discussions, evening seminars and also include invitation to the annual President’s Dinner.

Raise your profile

Becoming a Companion reinforces your reputation as a senior leader, nationally and internationally.  It opens doors to everything from accessing and engaging in cutting-edge research, to participating in key forums and conferences.

CMI Companions are profiled on the CMI website through our online Directory. Public profile enhancement includes speaking opportunities at events; involvement in high profile campaigns, PR and features in "Professional Manager" magazine.

A lasting legacy

It’s rare indeed to have the opportunity to shape the future – but as a Companion you can steer and influence the future of management and leadership, not least by lobbying government in support of CMI initiatives and campaigns.  In addition, your thinking and theories, your practical processes and applications could all contribute significantly as your legacy to the next generation of managers.
