I am delighted to announce I have been made a Chartered Marketer by the Chartered Institute of Marketing; one of only a few in Cumbria non the less!
Since being granted the authority to award Chartered Marketer status by The Queen’s Privy Council in 1998, The Chartered Institute of Marketing has been recognising professional excellence by awarding Chartered status. Chartered Marketer status is the mark of an up-to-date, experienced and qualified marketing professional.
To become a Chartered Marketer I had to complete 35 hours of continued professional development over the past two years; this has included attending conferences and seminars, undertaking private study, mentoring students, volunteering as a board member of AgeUK Carlisle and Eden and making a contribution to the local community.
I was previously a Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (MCIM), but by demonstrating hard work and dedication to my continuing professional development I have been recognised by the Institute and am now allowed to use the title, as well as being listed as one of only a handful of Chartered Marketers in Cumbria in recognition of my ongoing commitment to the industry.
I am thrilled to have been able to achieve Chartered Marketer status with the Chartered Institute of Marketing. I have worked extremely hard over the past two years, not only to build up my business, but to ensure that the work I do and the advice I give is the most up to date, relevant and valuable it can be. I believe it is important to keep on top of developments in the industry so I can ensure my clients have access to the expert knowledge they need.
As you can probablly tell from my blog and website I have worked with many fantastic clients over the past two and a half years – over 40 in fact! I have been particularly involved with the Penrith Chamber of Trade and Commerce, the Pride in Penrith Lottery, Country Puddings, Penrith Building Society, Dorothy Wightman Interiors and Enterprise Answers amongst others, but my biggest projects to date have been community projects; putting somrhting back intot he town I love – including the Stars of Business Awards, Penrith Winter Festival and the Winter Droving event, which I created with Eden Arts and am currently working on again for 2013!
