No fees or fuss
Here at the IoD we have dedicated Press and PR teams to not only promote the organisation, but also its members and Chartered Directors. Our PR team, led by Gerry Vincent, have close relationships with a number of events organisations and on- and offline press teams, providing countless opportunities for Chartered Directors to raise awareness of their own expertise as well as that of their business. If you’d like to find out more, or if you’d like to submit an article or blog to IoD.com, get in touch today!
No nasty surprises
If the idea of your words being taken out of context in print and causing a HR debacle is what’s preventing you from contributing articles or interviews to magazines – stop worrying. Every piece you write or offer comment to is signed off by the IoD and yourself, meaning you have full control over what you have written. Any changes made are usually for length or clarity, and will be explained to you before submission.
Tried and Tested
A number of Chartered Directors have written articles for leading business magazines and websites, with many being invited back to provide more! Examples of these can be found on Chartered Director social media and in your monthly Chartered Director eNewletters. Contributing to these publications can also count towards your annual CPD quota, making it a win-win exercise.
As well as blogs and articles, there are also opportunities for video interviews, speaking engagements and even presenting your own event for fellow Chartered Directors. Getting your name and business out there through the press is a great way to raise awareness of who you are and what you do, which will like result in more opportunities coming your way as your profile grows.
Raise awareness of your achievement
Not only does press coverage benefit you as an individual, it also increases awareness of the Chartered Director qualification. Within the Chartered Director community, spreading the benefits of the status is a shared aim, in order to raise the profile of the award within the business sector.
