We have 100’s of other testimonials from CLMPs who have been through this program – a few examples:
“Finally, after a few attempts, the Malaysian based Certified Loyalty Marketing Professionals™ (CLMP) met up for the very first time. Great get to know you session as we shared ideas, challenges and opportunities as a loyalty professional/practitioner. We also shared our favourite loyalty programmes… Beside our favourites, we also shared our least favourite ones as well.
With loyalty marketing becoming a key lever for companies to retain, reward and remember customers, it is crucial that we as loyalty professionals and practitioners continue to evolve and pay close attention to the ever-changing heartbeat of the customers. To do that, we need a community where we can hear best practices, share challenges and support each other in our pursuit to bring delight to our customers as a loyalty marketeer.”

I feel wonderful and have learned immensely from the course. I have actually watched all the videos in the curriculum without skipping even the electives. It was a pleasure taking this up. Thanks for your guidance and support. Please let me know the next steps. I will spread the word in my circle, so that fellow colleagues also take up this wonderful course & get their certifications. Please continue the great work that you’re doing! It’s been a beautiful and amazing learning experience”

In my role I see first-hand how shoppers change their behaviour and shift their views because of loyalty, and this course has provided a great source of knowledge and inspiration to further fine-tune and develop more compelling offers for our retail clients and shoppers. Many thanks to the The Loyalty Academy for your support and guidance in the past months. And thank you to Brand Loyalty for all your encouragement along the way!”
Catherine Stuart, Sr. Insights Consultant, Brand Loyalty (Hong Kong China)
“Thank you The Loyalty Academy! Feels great to be a part of such a unique & elite community of loyalty professionals. Margaret Meraw, MBA, CLMP & Michael Capizzi, CLMP – Thank you for your constant support during the entire course duration & after!”
Krishma Chheda, Analytics Consultant (Australia)
“During the CLMP training this year, you presented the ROI model, which I found to be one of the more exciting parts of the overall material. We recently worked on a tender to acquire a new customer for i360 – a retail chain running 150 stores across the country supported by a robust e-commerce model. We spent more than 100 hours developing the ROI model you showed, primarily supplementing it with detailed parameters that needed to be considered while planning project finance. On top of that, we extrapolated the results for the following years and created detailed management dashboards of the implications of the costs incurred on EBITDA, depreciation, cash requirements, etc.
As a result of this work, I have just signed a >1 mil USD contract with a new client. They conveyed that a significant factor in their decision to choose i360 was the professional development of ROI analytics. The above would not have been possible had it not been for your training.”
Tomasz Makaruk, CEO, i360 (Poland)
