As the new Chartered Marketers and CIMG members embark on the next phase of their careers, they are poised to drive innovation and uphold the high standards of the marketing profession in Ghana.

Dr Kasser Tee, National President of CIMG in his welcome address highlighted the significance of the occasion for the inductees and newly conferred Chartered Marketers. He commended their dedication and perseverance in achieving this professional milestone.

“Attaining the status of Chartered Marketer is a goal that every professionally qualified marketer aspires to achieve. This ceremony recognises your hard work and dedication, having completed the Continuing Professional Development process post-qualification and many years of practice and/or teaching at higher levels,” Dr. Tee stated.

He emphasised the importance of maintaining high standards and embodying the principles acquired through professional practice.

“Your role is crucial in transforming industry narratives and maintaining high standards. Encourage your organisations to steer clear of unprofessional marketing conduct in favour of sound strategies to create customer value as a means to growing businesses,” he urged.

Dr Tee also addressed the necessity for marketers to embrace emerging technologies, particularly Artificial Intelligence (AI).

He pointed out that AI offers unprecedented opportunities for gaining deeper insights into customer behavior, enhancing personalisation and optimizing marketing strategies.

“By leveraging AI, you can stay ahead of the curve, ensuring your marketing efforts are innovative, customised and effective,” he advised.

He stressed the need for marketers to understand their customers, industry trends and competitor actions to devise comprehensive and workable strategies.

“What your competitors do today is important to you but you must also be able to predict their next actions ahead of time. Based on these, you can now devise comprehensive and workable strategies for your businesses,” he remarked.

He encouraged the inductees to demonstrate their dedication and skill in supporting the brands they promote, ensuring that their success brings pride and honour to CIMG.

Dr. Tee concluded his speech by inviting individuals interested in marketing to enrol in the CIMG Professional Marketing Qualifications (PMQ), a carefully crafted set of courses designed to elevate marketing professionals to strategic roles within their organisations.

The conferment and induction ceremony brought together members of the CIMG Governing Council, distinguished guests and all witnessing the formal recognition of the inductees’ and conferees’ commitment to the marketing profession.
