Daniel Chipato is the Chief Sales Officer for Proton Bakers, a ZimChartered Marketer, holder the MAZ Marketing Practitioner Status, and a Marketing Degree from Chinhoyi University. He was the First Runner up Top Marketer of the Year for 2019 and got the same award in 2020 He had this to say :“ Enrolling for the ZimChartered Marketer program with the Marketers Association of Zimbabwe was one of the wisest decisions that l will forever be proud of. This was motivated by the need keep abreast of the current Strategic Marketing trends. Marketing is an evolving field, the digital space is growing and the consumer is becoming more informed thus marketers needs to keep abreast with global trends through well constituted programs like the ZimChartered Marketer qualification. Covering key modules such as Strategic Marketing, Big Data Analytics, and Marketing Metrics and Innovation the presentations from well experienced facilitators helped in diagnosing key marketing problems and were adequately applied on the SME Mentorship program. The SME mentorship program helped in developing a strong marketing culture for my SME and the relationship with them developed into professional consultancy thus benefiting myself and the growth of the SME. The application of the theory earned was immediately felt in current portfolio as l was able to improve in a number of areas including product innovations, strategic marketing and enhanced brand visibility. The results of this were business growth and recognition as seen through the scooping of both personal and individual awards during the Exceptional Marketers awards as well as Superbrand awards. I would recommend fellow marketers who have not taken up this program to do so and enjoy the professional benefits that come with this highly esteemed qualification from the Marketers Association of Zimbabwe”.
“Having been based internationally for a while, before and after completing undergraduate studies, moving back to Zimbabwe I had my fair share of challenges navigating and executing strategies appropriate for clients operating in the local business environment. The ZimChartered Marketer path seemed a right fit for me, as not only did it consolidate theory into practice through mentorship of an SME, but it also exposed me to the practical approach to marketing in the local business environment, allowing me to localise my globally accredited qualifications such that they are relevant to the local business environment. I have since managed to help more clients to flourish, better my service offering to the company and the clients we handle and work with, both SMEs and blue-chip companies, ensuring they remain competitive and continue to grow in the current dire economy. I am now more able to show businesses the simplest way to see return on investment on their marketing efforts and increase their sales whilst reducing costs by holistic business and marketing strategies. As someone who has chosen a career on the agency side and later consulting, not only did the program sharpen my brain on the current local marketing trends, which is key for any business success, but the value I can bring to any client has increased and can really count on their bottom line. The program has helped address my need as a marketing professional to be credible and results oriented, providing a platform for enhanced career prospects and an avenue for continuous personal development in today's dynamic business environment by oﬀering practical marketing exposure blended with relevant theory.
