Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...
A game-changing week for me!
The programme has been exceptional – I’ve met peers, industry experts and specialists who have really challenged my thinking and inspired me to think about how to operate differently to drive change. Probably the best intervention I could have at this stage of my career!
Walk over burning coals, broken glass, molten lava, hot phone lines and hard pavements to get on this programme.

You would be mad not to!
The Marketing Academy has inspired me to transform the way I think about the C-suite. It’s gone from a pipedream to an attainable goal!
The Marketing Academy is a truly life changing opportunity. The diversity of minds and quality of people is incredible and creates a one of a kind environment for learning, professionally and personally. The honesty and humility you meet through participants, coaches and mentors propel your development. I would love to re-name the academy, because it is really all about personal development- becoming the best possible leader you can be. Amazing. Be ready to go on a journey!
The Marketing Academy Scholarship is like no other learning experience I’ve had before. Forget textbooks, assignments and exams – it’s all about learning from inspirational leaders, being more self-aware and ultimately becoming the leader you want to be whilst being yourself!
If Carlsberg did networks…
Being a part of the Marketing Academy has been an absolute privilege. The yearlong course has really helped to understand where I would like to aim toward in my career and also made me realize what is important in both my personal and professional life. From CEOs of Blue Chip companies to mentors and personal development coaches; the people I have had the pleasure of meeting along the way have been absolutely outstanding. It has been a whirlwind of a year and really challenging at times but it is rare you get to make as many real friends in such a short space of time. If you have the opportunity to do the same, grab it with both hands.
A one-of-a-kind leadership development experience every marketer wish they had.
The Fellowship Programme is outstanding. It has a “hard” business orientation and focuses on building value. The teaching modules are world-class. One also gets the chance to meet a highly talented group of people.
The Marketing Academy has been transformational for me in a number of ways. I have developed my leadership behaviours and skills in a way that is authentic to me and my values – benefiting both me and the people around me. Through the programme I have also developed an invaluable network that has helped me learn and grow. The Marketing Academy has stayed with me well beyond the year of the programme and truly embodies what it means to be a lifelong learner & always work in progress!
Three words describe this year for me – gain, grow and give. You’ll gain so much personally and professionally, more than you ever thought was possible. You’ll grow incredibly quickly as a result, stretching your capability beyond its limits. By the end, all you’ll want to do is give back to those around you, so they can benefit from at least a fraction of the experience you’ve had.
I feel hugely excited and privileged to be part of the Marketing Academy. The combination of mentoring, coaching and training provides a unique opportunity, which is totally un-matched by any other programme out there. I’m excited about shaping and supporting the Marketing Academy so future scholars have the same opportunities as us.
If you want to meet others who can help you think differently about your objectives in work and the outcomes you are delivering, and at the same time learn more about how to grow your personal impact – then apply. You’ll make life long friends and a network more valuable than an MBA.
The Scholarship thus far has exceeded all my expectations and once I get my house in order, i.e. wrapping up this experience, I know it has profoundly enriched me as an individual, leader and marketer. I feel so fortunate having received this opportunity and living the experience every day, and once it is all over, I will greatly miss it, but also recognize my responsibility to make the most of it in my life and career going forward!
Definitely life-changing. Can’t thank you enough for bringing these wonderful human beings (not only successful professionals) to my life.
The Marketing Academy is an intense, emotional and thrilling journey of discovery. I have learnt so much about myself and the type of leader I can be through meetings with the Marketing Academy team, inspirational mentors, my clear-sighted, no-nonsense coach and my work with my charity. This is the most incredible experience and privilege, and I often wonder what I will do when the year ends; I wish I could be a 2013 scholar too.
The Marketing Academy is the most life changing programme I’ve ever been on – imagine feeling like for the first time ever you know what your purpose is. Imagine understanding for the first time too how to go about getting that career you really want. Imagine feeling more inspired and empowered than ever before by incredible industry leaders from across the marketing industry. Finally, imagine having the opportunity to grow a brand new network of talented future leaders and friends. The Marketing Academy has been an indescribable experience so far – the journey I have been on has been almost magical and I can’t thank the Academy, mentors, coaches and speakers enough for helping to shape the new professional I have become.
Pulling together over 80 marketing director mentors, numerous organisational facilities and 28 scholars has been an amazing achievement.

I’m incredibly proud to be involved with the Scholarship Programme. It brings talented individuals together in a powerful blend of training, mentoring and coaching which is completely free of charge. The benefits to mentors and mentees alike are mutually rewarding. The programme has status, momentum and real influence now.
My Marketing Academy journey is a story of two paths that merged. Path one started in October 2009 in Sydney, when I mentored Arron Child…
