Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a necessity for most but vital in the fast changing PR & marketing sector. The profession has changed beyond all recognition in the 16 years Marketing PRojects has just celebrated.

MD, Jane Harrad-Roberts’ links to learning were strengthened as she finished the 10 month LEAD programme at Liverpool University last year and her 15th year of CPD with the Chartered Institute of Marketing alongside her Fellowship. She is now serving on the Cheshire committee ‘giving something back’ and has been asked to return as a guest lecturer and member of Chester University’s ‘Creative industries panel’ later this month.

Marketing PRojects likes to offer local opportunities to students. 22 year old Claire Gibbs arrived in May last year on a five week placement from Chester University and has since become PR & Marketing Executive. Jamie from Liverpool JMU is currently on work experience with us.

Last October we proudly sponsored a Cheshire lunch for marketing VIPs in conjunction with Marketing Cheshire. World-wide advertising legend Sir John Hegarty (photo right) gave us his expert opinion spanning 5 decades from the world of branding and advertising. We have also sponsored the Property Breakfasts for Place Northwest around Cheshire and the Freelance Fairs in Liverpool, Manchester and Warrington.

New office facilities in Liverpool on Colquitt Street add to our offices in Chester and London and we are celebrating being selected by Food Northwest for a further two years on its Supplier Framework for PR, events, CSR, consultancy and research.

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility actions our 3 charities this year are nationally the NSPCC, regionally Aftermath Support and locally Children Today.

Finally, if you need help or reassurance for your own PR and marketing activities, it would be worth contacting us for a FREE review. YOUR contribution to continuous improvement!
