Professional services for TIA members

One of the benefits of being a member of the TIA UK is the access it provides members to high quality professional services.

There are five professional business service providers (PBSP) currently offering their services to TIA UK members at preferential rates.

All of the providers have been selected by the TIA UK from recommendations, and each company was invited to present to the board before their selection as a PBSP.  Phil Sandilands, TIA Business Development Manager said: “Our aim is to provide cost effective and useful services for our members.”

BLM is a leading UK law firm. Areas of expertise include health and safety, product management, regulatory law, crisis management, employment, construction, reputation management, information law, cyber risks as well as insurance and commercial litigation. BLM lawyers have provided advice to a number of sporting associations and related businesses.

Perkins Slade, one of the UK’s largest independent insurance brokers, can deliver impartial, expert advice on insurance and risk management.

Perkins Slade has been the approved broker to the Sport and Recreation Alliance for over 25 years and also works with the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish Sports Associations and arranges cover for some of the UK’s major sporting facilities, including the National Tennis Centre. It also provides cover for a number of sporting events, including the pre-Wimbledon tournaments at Queens Club and Eastbourne.

With over 40 years’ experience, Traveleads is one of the UK’s longest-established travel specialists. As a leading independent travel management company, Traveleads can offer members a very high quality business travel service at competitive prices.

Traveleads works with many of the UK’s leading sports national governing bodies, including British Swimming, the English Cricket Board, Scottish Rugby, British Cycling and the Rugby Football League – plus some 40-odd other sports and a host of household names in sport, including Andy Murray.

Since 1997, Action Coach has provided advice to business owners around the world. Lee Dickinson is a certified business coach with Action Coach and works with clients in five key areas: sales; marketing and advertising; team building and recruitment; systems and business development and customer service.

Founded in 1989, Conference Co-ordination is a PBSP that can manage every facet of organising a conference, meeting or event from concept to implementation. The Harrogate-based company offers both domestic and global services. These range from sourcing a venue, arranging audio-visual equipment and staging to printing promotional material and managing delegates.

TIA UK members, like Prince, have already used some of these services and Sandilands said of the carefully selected PBSPs: “It is extremely important for us to offer key business services from the best companies available”.

Each of these five companies is offering its services to TIA UK members at preferential rates. Interested members are encouraged to contact the companies direct for an individual discussion.
