IQCS Brochure available for download

As announced at the AGM in November, IQCS has produced a marketing brochure eschewing the benefits of membership, which we produced this in soft and hosted ebrochure.
The purpose of creating this is twofold:

  • to help IQCS Coordinators in existing member companies sell the benefits of membership internally to senior management, and
  • to use as a marketing tool to attract potential new members
  • Download (PDF, 1.64MB)

    This brochure has been sent out in hard copy to a number of organisations who we had identified from industry directories as the type of organisation for whom IQCS membership might potentially be appropriate in order to try and encourage new members.
