The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland is a professional membership body that is responsible for physician training both nationally and internationally. Our initial project was to oversee and completely audit the RCPI marketing and communications activity. We worked closely with the marketing team, CEO and chairman to develop a holistic approach for RCPI which has been implemented throughout our partnership with them.
Further to the audit we carried out Market Research with various groups within RCPI, from staff and members to fellows of the institute and trainees, to establish what the RCPI was for them individually, how has it evolved and what next. We also carried out research with international members of RCPI as their affiliation and communication with the college is an important growth strategy. The research had common threads throughout all groups and we understood that the RCPI was and is a well renowned established body steeped in heritage and history although at the cutting edge of developing new policies and leading the way through innovation.
Based on the research we evolved the brand of RCPI alongside each of the faculty brands which in themselves each had to be carefully considered as well as developing and implementing corporate guidelines for use throughout RCPI by all parties. We have worked on various marketing literature and materials including, international brochures, Trainee induction packs for Basic and Higher Specialist Training, Courses and Events brochure, St Luke’s Week, stationery, stands, Ezines, and Videos.
