Institute of Place Management and Revive & Thrive working together for UK Places
Revive and Thrive is proud to announce that it is now a Partner of the Institute of Place Management (IPM), which is the professional body for the place management sector. Both organisations have committed to work together and make it easier for place managers to get the information and support they need to do their job.
The agreement will enable more Revive and Thrive events to be recognised as valuable learning opportunities for delegates, through IPM’s Continuing Professional Development accreditation process. In addition, more insight and knowledge developed by the world-leading researchers in IPM will now be shared through the Revive and Thrive community.
Professor Cathy Parker, Chair of the Institute of Place Management said, “We have been very impressed with the Revive and Thrive team, their events as well as Place Magazine so we are really pleased to have the opportunity to work more closely together”.
MD and Founder of Revive & Thrive, Mark Barnes, said “The two organisations complement each other extremely well and will offer a huge amount of value to their respective networks.”
He added, “We have a shared ethos of supporting places of all sizes and offering accessible information to place managers, councils and community activists to enable them to bring about the changes they want in the places that they care about.”
This new collaboration melds together perfectly. IPM’s academic approach, research and training fit together with Revive & Thrive’s solution-focused approach to inspiring and sharing best practice, thus ensuring that advice, mentoring and information is readily available to all places.
With networks extending from academia and the country’s largest BIDs to elected councillors, volunteers and businesses on the high street, the future for place management and our nation’s towns, cities, villages and high streets looks as promising as it has for a long time.
