Small business owners are facing challenging times. The Organisation for Responsible Businesses would therefore like to offer ASP members a special discretionary membership rate of £24 per annum for the first year, after which time normal rates will apply unless exceptional circumstances warrant a continued discount. This offer is currently available to applications made by 31st December 2023.
ORB is NOT a marketing company, it is a movement for a better way of doing business, but we do guarantee that as part of your membership your company will be promoted both within the membership and externally to consumers, private and public sector via our directory, newsletters and social media channels.
ORB is a national, not-for-profit, member-owned company limited by guarantee, offering membership, course and certification options to small businesses including start-ups, freelancers, sole proprietors, and micro businesses. Find out more via our main website: https://orbuk.org.uk.
To protect the integrity of ORB’s membership, we have a 3-stage application process which includes a short online questionnaire, committing to the pledge as shown below, and a Zoom call to ensure values are aligned. ASP applicants will need to complete the same process. I suggest in the first instance anyone interested should email Jill Poet, CEO of ORB, to arrange an initial chat.
ORB MEMBER’S PLEDGE
“We pledge to operate our business in an honest and ethical manner; to consider people and the environment when making business decisions; and endeavour to make a positive contribution to the local community and society at large.”
ORB and ASP have worked on a partnership basis for many years and several people are already members of both organisations. ORB and ASP have similar aims, yet their respective approaches are quite different. Most importantly, if we have a common desire to make a positive impact, to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem, we are much stronger together.
We hope you will take advantage of this very special offer.
