Communications and PR

The primary aim of this committee is to inform the membership, the City, professional marketers and professions related to Marketing, about the Company and its activities. We provide expertise in internal and external communication, aiming to ensure the Company is seen as an exemplar in marketing communications within the City and the membership.
The committee is responsible for all aspects of the Company’s marketing and communications, including the publishing of Marketor Magazine, the Members’ Directory and other items of print, running a co-ordinated Public Relations campaign, and managing and maintaining the Company’s website.

Since the establishment of the Worshipful Company of Marketors in 1975 there has been a strong link with the Church of St Bride’s, Fleet Street. St Bride’s has been the parish church for all in the media world for many years, and extends a warm welcome to all those who work in marketing, advertising and PR to join in worship and to visit the Church when in London.

Fellowship, Membership & Livery

The Fellowship Committee manages and supports the ‘Customer Journey’ from prospect to enthusiastic advocate of The Worshipful Company of Marketors. The committee manages the process from applications to join as a Freeman, through progression to the Livery, and beyond. We also aim to promote Fellowship and two-way engagement between the Company and its members, providing value to both.

Education

The Education Committee provides research leadership and promotes discussion and debate between the Company, its Members, other Livery Companies, business leaders and the wider marketing profession. In addition, it recognises marketing excellence by recommending and reporting to trustees on awards, bursaries, scholarships, research projects and other activities of a quality likely to advance marketing education or the practice of marketing.

Heritage

The Heritage Committee preserves, via its archivist, the history of the Company on a continuous basis by collecting, annotating and cataloguing all the written and visual records covering all aspects of the Company’s activities year by year.

Traditionally over many centuries the City Livery Companies have supported the Armed Forces. Our Company has formed a link with 151 Regiment The Royal Logistic Corps, St Dunstan’s College Combined Cadet Force and HMS St Albans.
