Committees

Whilst the Master, Wardens and Court directs the Guild’s overarching strategy, the implementation of the Guild’s work is devolved to a number of Committees, each chaired by a member of the Court.

~

AWARDS – the Awards Committee manages the Guild’s financial charitable and prize-giving activities (as distinct from the independent Guild of Entrepreneurs Trust). It makes applications to the Guild of Entrepreneurs Trust for financial support where appropriate.

If you are interested in learning more about this Committee please contact: Court Assistant Neil Partridge

~

COMMUNICATIONS – the Communications Committee ensures the effectiveness of the Guild’s marketing and communications. Maintenance of the website and the Guild magazine form a large part of the work of the Committee, alongside social media and the production of branded collateral. The Communications Committee also looks after public relations issues for the Guild and its Officers.
