Global Standards

To promote excellence in the digital marketing and digital sales sectors and to strengthen the profession through the creation of relevant supporting standards, insights and practices that can be applied globally, we have created a unique collaboration through the Industry Advisory Council (IAC) with educators, industry and influencers to ensure current and future trends.


At the core of the Industry Advisory Council’s work is the identification of current and future trends, contributing to 'best practice' advice, industry research and insights for professionals and the industry. This offers guidance on an educational framework to support the development and promotion of the profession and the opportunities for individuals and businesses.

The Global IAC meets twice annually to actively set the agenda for the digital marketing and selling professions, also contributing to ongoing research and content on current and future trends in the industry.

Global IAC Members

Members are invited from global leadership companies and organizations that constitute business and consumer leadership, engagement and innovation in technology, platforms, brands, agencies and influencer domains. All members agree to Global IAC Governance terms which are published and annually reviewed under confidential terms of engagement.
