Master Marketor, Dr. Glyn Cartwright, was one of the main tent speakers in Belfast recently, at an event titled ‘Big Marketing Meet Up Belfast’. This conference attracted around 160 delegates from across Northern Ireland, making it one of the largest marketing events to be held in the province.
Glyn's passion is education and the transfer of knowledge. He delivered a thought-provoking presentation on this topic.
During this, he also gave an overview of the heritage of the City of London Livery movement. He also outlined the position held by the Worshipful Company of Marketors today.
The Worshipful Company of Marketors is one of the newer, modern livery companies in the City of London. It was founded in 1975 and received its Royal Charter in 2010. It is dedicated to the promotion and support of the profession of marketing.
The Worshipful Company of Marketors Livery Company has four aims:
- To actively support the Mayoralty, the City of London Corporation and ‘UK plc’
- To promote marketing education and the benefits of the profession of Marketing to those in the City, and beyond
- To give back both financially and in-kind and make a contribution to the development of marketing
- To bring in and retain members, foster fellowship and plan and foster succession
As well as covering these points, Glyn shared his vision for developing the ‘name and fame’ of the Marketors’. He explained how the Marketors and other Livery Companies have a very important role to play.
Glyn believes that in the future, this will cover not only the City of London but also ‘UK plc’ and expanding internationally. The Master Marketor plans to build a network of regional hubs; in Belfast and in other regions of the UK.
He believes that growing the Marketors’ membership will play a vital role. Membership will offer marketing professionals the opportunity to network, increase their marketing skills and capabilities and grow their career.
During his speech, Glyn invited delegates to go to the Marketors’ website to find out more and apply for membership.
