Important – Membership Survey
In this our 30th anniversary year WIBF is conducting one of the most comprehensive surveys of our members ever....and your participation really counts as it will shape our future.
WIBF only exists for your benefit and we are interested in learning about challenges you have faced and your thoughts and hopes for the future. Your feedback will help us ensure we deliver the development, support and resources you need to achieve your goals. As an extra incentive all participants are eligible to be entered into a free draw for a bottle of champagne.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and remains open until May 24th 2010. We aim to highlight preliminary findings at our Awards Lunch on 4th June and share with all our members in due course. Take the survey now: WIBF Member Survey 2010

Note:
If you are taking the survey online, we recommend taking it via your laptop or desktop browser as it is not optimised for mobile phones. Any personally identifiable information will be kept confidential. Any personal quotes or other details will be made anonymous. If you want to participate in follow-up or to be entered in the draw, you will need to provide us with an email address at the end of the survey. We will not share your email address with anyone.
