Message to the members from Master Marketor, John Farrell


Marketing - Leading Business From the Front

The Marketors Company comprises of a terrific community of senior marketing professionals. It is a great privilege and honour for me to be elected as Master Marketor, and I am thoroughly looking forward to the year ahead.

In today’s challenging business world I believe that marketing knowledge and understanding has never been more important in the leadership of businesses.

Whether those businesses be global multinationals, or more local charitable institutions, the relevance and impact of great marketing strategy, and thinking together with excellence in marketing creativity, is enormous.

It is no accident then that as I set forth on my year as Master Marketor that I have persuaded some of the biggest names in global business to address our Company, and bring their insights to my theme for 2021: “Marketing - Leading Business from the Front”

We can look forward to being joined by, amongst others, Sir Martin Sorrell, Alan Jope, Baroness Martha Lane Fox, Eric Nicoli and Steve King.

These landmark events will add great value to our existing programme of digital activities, which have proved so successful.

The Marketors Company is in a strong position going into 2021 because of the hard work of my predecessors, and despite the COVID related challenges associated with not being able to enjoy the fellowship in quite the same way as we normally do in person, I nevertheless believe that the values and spirit of the Company have never been stronger.

I’m hopeful that as well as a vibrant professional programme in 2021, we will equally continue to provide the much-needed pro bono charitable support to so many deserving causes.

If a vibrant professional body, with all of the values and principles of a City Livery company for marketing professionals sounds like something you would want to potentially be part of then feel free to check out our membership pages, or to email our Chair of Membership, Keith Rowland, via to arrange an in-person conversation.

It only remains for me to wish everyone the best for 2021, and to sincerely hope for good health, great fellowship, and happier times ahead!
