“Lotus HR have been active members of MSDUK for three years. They are excellent in their endeavours to open new avenues to prospective business opportunities for their members. I found the MSDUK conference insightful and an effective opportunity for learning as well as networking. Lotus have succeeded in securing business from certain minority businesses in MSDUK.”

“MSD UK is a fantastically well run organisation – professional, strategic and just nice people. The three things we like about it are – excellent events (Meet the Buyer etc;), Great Networking Opportunities, Exposure to Senior Client Side contacts. The Awards Event every 2 years is fairly exceptional as well.”

“Cummins has worked with MSDUK for a number of years now and has accelerated its diversity program in UK through the working relationship that has been forged with Mayank and the team. With their help and support in connecting Cummins to Ethnic Minority Businesses (EMB’s) Cummins has increased activity, engagement and spend percentage with this under represented segment of the supply base. This has been achieved through high quality events, group and one to one meetings organised by MSDUK. Cummins recognise that MSDUK performs a unique professional service in identifying, qualifying and certifying EMB’s and this forms the basis of the activities required by Cummins and other corporate entities to form part of a robust diversity program.”
