Two Lancashire Universities shortlisted for The Pitch

Congratulations go out to the two Lancashire based universities shortlisted for this years’ Chartered Institute of Management’s The Pitch competition.

The Pitch, the CIM’s nationwide marketing competition for students is designed to recognise and reward the marketing talent of the future.  First organised by members of CIM in Lancashire to help students pass their famous ‘case study’ exam, the competition is now well into its third decade and continues to inspire and assist young marketers.

The local Lancashire universities with shortlisted teams going to CIMs’ Head Quarters in Berkshire on 09 March are:

University of Central Lancashire, who are no strangers to the competition, having taken part most years it has run and who have won many times in the past.

Edge Hill University, who are through for the first time.

Diane Earles, Network Manager for CIM in the North, said “This is an amazing achievement for these universities, showing that we have great marketing talent in the Northern Powerhouse universities.  We wish all the teams well, but of course would love to see the accolade return to the North.”

After 34 years working in numerous operational and communications disciplines for three FTSE companies (Yorkshire Electricity; Meggitt and BAE Systems), at over a dozen locations, on 24 November 2016, I became the inaugural editor of Business Lancashire. Business Lancashire is a good news, Lancashire focused, business website and daily newsletter. It is a partnership between The Samuel James Group and the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, I have written hundreds of press releases, features for trade magazines, copy for websites and brochures, edited in-house magazines and newsletters, as well as presenting a radio programme on Chorley FM. This experience has given me the ideal background for editing Business Lancashire.
