Tell us about yourself!
Having been qualified and worked in Marketing for 30 years, I am keen to share my passion for Marketing as a profession! I have lived and worked on the Isle of Man for more than 20 years and am keen to ensure others have the same opportunities in professional marketing as I had, so am committed to continuing our Isle of Man based Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Accredited Study Centre – this means that people starting or progressing their careers in Marketing can benefit from local face-to-face learning opportunities with other like-minded professionals through our Centre, The Marketing Partnership Limited .
I have recently developed the Isle of Man Marketing Apprenticeship Scheme, supported by Government, now entering its fourth successful year in September 2020 – this is also another viable option for Graduates seeking to enter the Marketing profession locally and has historically attracted successful local businesses to offer new Marketing roles.
