Responsible Oxfordshire Business Involvement Network (ROBIN)

Identifying how to boost membership and engagement for an Oxfordshire business network.

The challenge

ROBIN wanted to know how it could boost business membership of the network and maximise the engagement of existing members.

Our approach

We designed and implemented an online survey and presented the results to the Steering Group, along with clear recommendations for action.

The result

As a result of this project the network has:

  • Launched a new website
  • Increased its membership significantly: it doubled within the first 12 months and continues to grow
  • Improved engagement by setting up a lively LinkedIn group
  • Created plans for themed events and additional support for new members

Your work allowed ROBIN to get to the heart of what our members want from their network in a clever but simple and effective way, allowing us to build the right web tools as a foundation for future collaborations between business and charity and voluntary organisations.
