Michael Hoare Consulting

Strategy, Communications & Public Affairs

Running a membership organisation, trade association, or small retail enterprise? Then you’re an ambassador, diplomat, entrepreneur, and a showman! How do you find the time? Do you need occasional help with member engagement; social media; online and print content; or public relations? Or even a review of your engagement strategy?

I have over twenty years experience managing and leading trade associations in the retail sector, including: the British Independent Retailers Association (formerly BSSA) and the National Association of Goldsmiths; I am a Fellow and Past President of the Institute of Association Management (IofAM); and a founder member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC).

Read about some of my experiences on the following pages, and then give me a call on 07710 874 355 or email info@michael-hoare.co.uk to find out how together we can position your organisation, get your company’s issues recognised, and manage your reputational risk.
