Peridot Partners

In this Conversations with Leaders podcast we talk to Rachel Lambert-Forsyth, Director of Membership and Professional Affairs at The Royal Society of Biology

Rachel was a guest speaker at our Future of Membership Organisations event in January 2020 where she talked about how you attract younger members – from developing personas to really mapping out their needs and career journey. 

Rachel will join the British Pharmacological Society as their new CEO in March 2020 and so we also discuss how she knew she was ready to make the step up to CEO. 

In this episode we talk about:

  • When do you know you're ready to become a CEO;
  • How do you prepare to start your first CEO role;
  • Imposter syndrome and how she over came it;
  • Being a young director;
  • ACEVO's New & Emerging Leaders Programme;
  • How to attract younger members to your membership organisation;
  • Future challenges and opportunities for membership bodies.
