The IPM has announced the results of its IPM 30 Under 30 2017 search for emerging talent in the promotional marketing industry.
Carey Trevill, Managing Director of the Institute of Promotional Marketing, says: “Amongst our Membership, we see emerging talent that creates success and innovation at every point. And we’re not just talking financial success – we’re talking about teams being built, lives shaped and hearts won in the pursuit of promotional expertise. Recognising this next generation of leaders is crucial to the creativity, success and tempo of the promotional marketing industry.”
The chosen candidates will now be officially welcomed to the 30 Under 30 2017 programme at an event to be held on December 8th 2016 at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden.
The IPM 30 Under 30 2017 programme was launched on September 27th 2016, with a call for entries from IPM member companies. Candidates could be of any level and any role, so long as they were under the age of 30 before the closing date of entry, which was 23.59 hours on Friday October 28th 2016. They also had to work for an IPM member.
The IPM is dedicated to championing professional development for the up-and-coming in the promotional marketing industry. Candidates were asked to state clear reasons why their inclusion on the programme would make a difference to their professional and personal development, together with evidence and endorsements.
The judging panel consisted of Chris Baldwin, Director of Consumer Programmes at Fotorama; Victoria Walsh, Founder, The Believe Consultancy; Richard Pink, PinkKey Consulting; Hina Parmar, Legal Counsel AB InBev; and Sam Jones, Founder, TwentySomeone.
They sifted through a massive number of submissions to find the winners and their choices can now be viewed on the IPM website.
The candidates chosen for the programme will now be offered the chance to participate in a range of learning experiences to enhance their capabilities and to provide them with skills and knowledge which they can take away and share with their colleagues in the organisations they work for.
The next call for entries, for the 30 Under 30 2018 programme, will open in September 2017. If you are an IPM Member and would like to register interest for the next intake, please contact the IPM team.
The IPM 30 Under 30 2017 programme is sponsored by Fotorama, part of the Sodexo Family.
