The IPM’s 30 Under 30 program recognises the promotional marketing industry’s next generation of leaders whose creativity, knowledge and drive are vital to the success of the wider marketing community.
More than that, the IPM’s 30 Under 30 2017 initiative – proudly sponsored by Fotorama, part of the Sodexo family, without whose support it could not take place – offers the chance for the 30 successful candidates to enhance their capabilities even further, with a range of tailored learning experiences over the course of 2017.
In addition, successful candidates will also have the opportunity to sit on the IPM’s 30 Under 30 exclusive group, which will contribute to the organisation’s future learning offerings and act as an incubator and sounding board for new IPM products and services and generally ensure the body is listening to the opinions and needs of its Generation X and Generation Y members.
Only people working for IPM member companies are eligible to be put forward for the 30 Under 30 program and they must be under the age of 30 at the closing date for entry (see here for all the details about eligibility, how to enter and the full terms and conditions).
Entries are being accepted until 23:59 on 28th October 2016. There is no charge for entry and an IPM member can put forward as many names as they want. Individuals are allowed to enter themselves, but only one entry per person is allowed. Every entry must be supported by at least one person (other than the person being put forward).
Judging will take place in November, with successful candidates for the Program informed mid-November of their success. The results will be published online no later than 28th November. Successful candidates will be invited to a private reception to be awarded ‘IPM 30 Under 30 2017′ status on the 8th December.
The Judges for the 30 Under 30 program will come from the IPM Membership and HR professionals who are experts in employment issues, staff motivation and diversity. Judging criteria are set out in the entry process.
