real life experiences

“I decided to gain recognition in March of 2015 because in addition to my status of Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management, I really felt that I needed a point of difference from other managers.   There are a lot of managers out there and unlike any other profession it can be hard to set us apart, I really felt that I needed something that had a set of standards and could act as a stamp of approval to say “This manager does what she says she will do” therefore providing me with credibility and recognition of my status as a professional manager.  It also shows my commitment to continuing professional development (CPD) and to CMI’s Code of Practice for Professional Managers.”
