We are excited to announce that Hitch has become a member of the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (The IPA).
The IPA offer legal advice, extensive insight and opportunities for continuous professional development. We have already benefited greatly from our IPA membership through accessing the IPA’s knowledge centre which has provided us with research and resources to expand the insights we have about a variety of social issues.
Our team is excited to access the CPD opportunities that the IPA provides, including creative and research courses. This will equip our team to stay up to date with the continuously changing world of advertising.
Gary Wootten, Managing Director of Hitch, states “We are so proud to be accepted as a member of the IPA. For us it reaffirms what we do. It tells us and our stakeholders we have reached the gold standard, can be trusted and are robust.”
Patrick Mills, Director of Membership and Professional Development, IPA said “We are delighted to welcome Hitch into IPA Membership, our first member based in the Liverpool city region. It is a wonderfully positive move by them to embrace IPA membership during the current uncertain times, a testament to the help, support and useful services (Legal, Insight and Professional Development to name but three) that the IPA can offer in times of a crisis.”
The IPA’s knowledge and legal support is extremely relevant during the times of Covid-19. We have no doubt that their expertise and support will enable us to expand our opportunities, continue contributing as thought leaders within our field and also to give us the ability to withstand the impact that coronavirus is having on businesses.
