Chairman's Address

John Edmund Managment Consultant and Chairman

Marketing is undergoing a revolution – a recessionary climate and a growing marketer’s tool box that includes new digital platforms, that in themselves are ever-changing, brings both challenges as well as opportunities to our profession.

With the 15th Annual CIM Ireland Marketing Excellence Awards I am pleased to invite best practice to take the centre stage. With new judges, new categories, newly crafted awards, and a new theme all marketers in Ireland aspire to see marketing positioned as it should be – as the most important added value activity an organisation – small or large, new or established can take across all industries and all sectors – private sector, public sector and social sector and with an even bigger and better CIM Awards.

All marketers want to see a better year, a greater spread of best practice and winners that are recognised for the hard work that goes into delivering success - marketing with impact that we can all learn from.

Finally a quick word from the jury to those writing their submissions: create an entry that tells a story – a story of success – a story of marketing with impact and a story that your peers would go green eyed to be able to boast about – there’s an award or 15 in it for those who heed this advice.

I look forward to seeing you at the Ireland Marketing Excellence Awards on 6 November.

- Christine Watson

Chair - Ireland Board, The Chartered Institute of Marketing
