Apologies for the extremely cheesy headline but it’s true, our MD Claire (Dunning) has just been made a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
The ‘CIM’ is the World’s biggest Marketing organisation and helps marketers at every stage of their career, with training, qualifications and resources.
Basically, it’s an organisation which helps businesses to get the most from their marketing people.
CIM has around 50,000 members worldwide but there are only 100 or so ‘Fellows’ in Scotland and only 10% of these ‘Fellows’ work on the ‘consultancy’ side of marketing. So, this puts Claire into the Top Ten of Marketing consultants in Scotland.
More importantly, for networking in our swish, ’29’ private member’s club and other posh Glasgow Chamber of Commerce events, she can now put the initials ‘FCIM’ after her name.
Surely this would be much more fun if they had called it a FeCIM?
Claire Dunning-FeCim, that sounds better!
