Perhaps you’re looking to diversify your income to reduce your reliance on membership fees; rethink how you use your properties or if you should downsize; or perhaps explore the potential that online communications offer for internationalisation. With haysmacintyre, you can be sure of an intelligent, informed discussion and our enthusiasm to find you the answers.

Inspiration and insight

Advising hundreds of organisations, with their various constitutions, purposes and challenges, has given us an equally diverse range of insights. This breadth of knowledge has helped us become recognised as thought leaders in this sector, with a reputation for devising innovative and effective approaches to our clients’ challenges.

Fingers on the pulse

Through our regular events, seminars, round tables and activities with groups and associations such as PARN and memcom, we have our fingers on the pulse of current developments and future challenges. We also frequently publish reports and sector insights. Our clients tell us they value our thought leadership and our willingness to share it.

More than you expect

In a recent survey of 13 of the high profile membership bodies we serve, we scored at least 4.8 out of 5 in areas such as sector knowledge, client responsiveness and professionalism. This reflects our determination to satisfy our clients, be proactive and continue to deliver above their expectations.

That’s borne out by the longstanding relationships we develop. In an area where frequent churn is the norm, we have clients who have stayed with us for years; not just those who want audits, but also clients who choose us for outsourcing, for example.

We are open and honest – if we’re not the right people to answer your question, we’ll say so and put you in touch with expert, trusted advisors or other clients who have experienced the same challenges. We have a very extensive network of professionals, and are happy to share contacts with you to help you achieve your aims.
