What is the GUILD platform?
Guild is a platform purpose-built for professional groups, networks, and communities to connect, communicate and collaborate. They are passionate about helping community creators (like us) to grow communities of expertise of the highest quality, integrity, and value. That’s why Inside Out chose the Guild platform to host our membership community for in-house creative leaders.
What is the member portal?
Our member portal is where you can gain access to our Digital Library, Knowledge Bank and full membership information.
How do I access the resources on the Digital Library?
The Digital library is hosted in the member portal. Here you will have access to past event recording and our interview series of Inside Conversation with leaders of in-house creative teams.
How can I show I am a member of the Inside Out Community?
Every member receives a digital membership badge. This badge can be shared on social media platforms and on your email signature to showcase your membership.
If I can’t attend a Breakfast Club, will I still be able to access the insights and useful resources shared?
Yes. A summary of the Breakfast Club discussions are always posted on the Guild group as a summary post a few days after the session.
Can I propose topics for discussion for a new Huddle?
Yes, the Huddle meets are topic-based discussions, so if you have a specific challenge you would like to discuss in depth with fellow members, you simply need to post your topic on the Huddle thread on Guild, or DM Sarah, who will set a date and time for you for the session.
How is the membership community linked to the Inside Out Awards?
Our community was born out of the success of the Inside Out Awards. For every team who participated in the awards, the more work we saw, the more we learned, the more connections we made. Before we knew it, a community of in-house creative leaders had been formed.
Do members of the Inside Out Community get any discounts into the Inside Out Awards?
Yes, members will benefit from a £200 discount per awards entry. Paying only £199 instead of £399.
