Rob Hunter was presented with the Fellowship at the recent IPA Members Lunch held earlier this month.
He has been an integral member of the IPA Professional Development Group since 2009 and a co-chair of it since 2014. During this time, he has supported the IPA’s Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme, regularly spoken at the Training Forum and contributed to videos promoting the IPA’s qualifications. Hunter also actively encourages clients to participate in IPA qualifications to promote better working relationships with their agencies.
Hunterlodge Advertising was also awarded its eighth consecutive Gold and third Platinum accreditation for their continued excellence in professional development at the event.
The agency has received this top accolade every year since the award was launched in 2008 – making it one of the few agencies to be Platinum accredited, a category for member agencies who have shown sustained commitment to outstanding professional development and who have achieved Gold accreditation for at least four consecutive years.
Commenting on the agency’s submission, the IPA judges said: “Hunterlodge’s content and presentation were both exemplary. They showed the best example of building an approach to CPD that reflects the vision and values of the organisation. This included a stunning rebrand and ‘Red thread of effectiveness’ evidently taken through Hunterlodge’s own business and CPD.”
