Wow this news comes from BPMA in England the photo looks like some kind of a MISS UK promotional product election, but that’s not exactly what Gordon organised. :-)

Here is the very serious press release that explains more about the photo :

The bpma Academy Graduation – November 2009

The bpma held its second Academy Graduation Ceremony at the House of Commons on the 9th November, with 35 guests attending the special occasion. John Greenway MP has supported the bpma and particularly the bpma Academy, and proudly presented 20 students with their certificates alongside Adrian Ferrand bpma’s Director of Education and Gordon Glenister, Director General of the trade body.


A great afternoon was had by all, Academy student Beth Coleman from Hambleside Business Gifts says“It was wonderful to see my fellow graduates at the House of Commons and find out how well everyone has done. It was clear the course had been challenging, but valuable and very enjoyable for everyone who took part. Personally, it was hugely satisfying to achieve a distinction and be recognised in such a great venue and by so many of my peers from within the industry. Thank you to the BPMA for a well constructed and relevant course and for the support provided throughout.”

The Academy Certificate in Promotional Merchandise was launched by the bpma in September 2008 and underlines the associations ongoing commitment to drive best practice through staff development ensuring quality of service to clients is maintained to the highest possible standard. Academy student Allison Holland from Brightkidz comments…’This course can help you to become more knowledgeable, confident and professional in your work in the promotional merchandise industry.’

Adrian Ferrand, the bpma’s Director of Education, says:
“As the industry starts to recover from the recession, companies must invest for the future – and the greatest single investment they can make is in the quality of their people. After all, they’re the ones who make things happen. Enhancing the skills and training of staff through the BPMA Academy gives extra reassurance to all of our customers. And judging from the quality of this year’s Academy graduates, the future of the industry will be in safe hands.”

The current Academy students are already working hard to achieve their certificates and have their celebratory day to look forward to in March 2010.The bpma Academy team are now taking enrolments for March 2010 where Train to Gain government funding is available. The course is open to bpma members and non bpma members within the industry. Contact academy@bpma.co.uk for more information.
