Now that the 25th May has come and gone, I really felt I had to mark the event with some commentary on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The Worshipful Company of Marketors
Marketing in the City of London and beyond.
The Worshipful Company of Marketors is the 90th in the City of London Roll of Livery Companies, which now number 110, with a further Company awaiting the award of livery. The number is likely to grow as new Guilds are being formed wishing to eventually progress to livery status. 32 ‘Modern’ Livery Companies have been created since 1926, reflecting the evolution of new professions, all with a significant role to play in the conduct of modern-day business within the City of London. These newer companies are more able than the older Livery Companies to draw their membership only from within the profession they represent. The Marketors was formed as a Guild in 1975 and we celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2015. A Royal Charter for the Worshipful Company of Marketors was approved at a meeting of the Privy Council held in Windsor on 12th April 2010.There is a close relationship on a personal and professional level between the Worshipful Company of Marketors, the Chartered Institute of Marketing and other marketing organisations, which are all entirely independent.
