Worcestershire group to support county’s marketers

A Worcester-based businesswoman has created ‘‘Marketing Leaders Worcestershire’’, a knowledge sharing and networking group specifically for the county’s marketers.

Kelly White, Partner and marketing recruitment lead at Headturner Search, has founded ‘Marketing Leaders Worcestershire’ following a successful career in marketing which has spanned 25 years, and has included roles as Marketing Director on the board of national law firms. She has joined forces with husband, Jonathan, who has over 30 years’ experience as a sales and marketing director within the financial technology sector, and who has a special interest in customer service, having spent time working with the Institute of Customer Service, the UK’s independent professional customer service body.

Kelly said, “Having worked in the county for a considerable time, there is no formal networking and advice group specifically for marketers and I wanted to change that. From data analysis to graphic design and communications, marketing is a multitude of skills. The group is designed to help marketers increase their knowledge, develop their career and make the Worcestershire marketing community strong, and the most collaborative in the UK.”

She continued, “It’s a safe space for members to ask questions, seek advice and create new connections within the county. We will be hosting both social and CPD events and the group is open to all marketers, regardless of their level of experience. It’s also a great opportunity for our senior marketers to start mentoring those just starting out in their careers.”

The group will hold their founding event as social Christmas drinks on Wednesday 6th December from 5pm – 8pm at Fred’s of Worcester. Tickets are available on Eventbrite https://rb.gy/5ufku.
