Happy New Year! May 2009 be your best year ever!!!
In keeping up with the spirit of the Chair blog, I would like to highlight something which came out recently in the e-zine The Street.com.
One of our members, Greg Ward CMC, was quoted in an article about Gen Y in the marketplace
and how they are making an impact while having special needs. It is a great article for those who are consulting in the areas of leadership, team building, culture, and organization change, and I highly recommend it.
Another thing I liked about the article is that in he is a "certified management consultant." Writing articles / being quoted and stating that you are a CMC and/or telling someone about your membership in IMC are some of the ways we are branding IMC and the CMC over the next years.
Thanks, Greg, for mentioning having the CMC - efforts like yours and others are helping us create broader recognition for the CMC and IMC membership in the marketplace.Speaking of recognition, did you know that IMC will help you write a press release about something noteworthy that has happened to you / your business and release it for you to media outlets?
As you know, press releases are a great way to develop pull marketing for your business, and getting quoted in the media (to whom the press releases go), can help you fill your pipeline.
We have issued press releases for a number of members already, including Loraine Huchler
for her work in helping the Gulf Coast refineries return to operations following Hurricane Ike, and Ken Lizotte
and his recent book The Expert's Edge
If you have a newsworthy item on which you would like to have IMC issue a press release, please contact Gayle Carson
, Bette Price
, or Gail McCauley
. They will be happy to get you on the road to becoming a "consultant rock star"!!!
Yours in consulting,
