Our Mentors

Our Australia Scholarship programme is sponsored by:

Meet the Scholarship Mentors

We have a team of exceptional Mentors who volunteer their time to work with our Scholars to develop and nurture their talent. These leaders are CEOs, MDs, CMOs, SVPs, and subject matter experts with experience across all industry sectors. Like us, they have a love for talent development, are dedicated to the achievement of marketing excellence and are keen to share their knowledge and experience. These are just some of the business leaders supporting the Australia Scholarship Programme as Mentors and speakers. The full Mentor line up will be announced in August 2018.
