A Marketing Valentines Day

 Off to Maidenhead by train on Wednesday for a meeting of the Academic Senate of the Chartered Institute of Marketing on the 14th.  Tradition is to dine the evening before our meeting and to stay the night at Moor Hall Cookham.  I was booked into Room 41, known as the Honeymoon Suite, very appropriate on the eve of Valentines were it not for the fact of being without my other half.
The Academic Senate advises the CIM on all matters pertaining to educational policy, maintenance and establishment of standards of The Chartered Institute of Marketing’s education provision and qualifications, and matters concerned with research into the subject of marketing.   The meetings are always full and very interesting.

Bruno Romano, Sally Muggeridge, Malcolm McDonald & Beverley Jullien

Following lunch I accompanied Professors Malcolm McDonald and John Egan, both Marketors,  to London South Bank University for an evening presentation on marketing.  It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm of the students to hear from Malcolm.  I met up with Beverley Jullien, the Pro Vice Chancellor who I know well from the Chartered Director Committee of the IOD.  Arrived back home for a late Valentines Dinner with my husband David.
