The ticket to a better you and relationships that will endure a lifetime.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

Being half way through the current Fellowship course, I couldn’t recommend it more highly to people. It’s worth just a few hours of your time to apply.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

It’s hard to sum up into words just how incredibly life-changing The Marketing Academy is as a program.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

Inspirational; informative; and insightful – it’s not often you can say that about a development programme.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

Pulling together over 80 marketing director mentors, numerous organisational facilities and 28 scholars has been an amazing achievement.

Sally Cowdry, Marketing Director Camelot UK Lotteries Ltd

Marketing Academy Board Member / UK

The Scholarship has transformed my way of thinking and helped my development to become a better leader. It has made me realize what my values are, which now recognized is benefiting both myself and those around me. I have met some really inspirational people and have received invaluable advice and mentoring which will help me on my journey through the rest of my career.

Charlotte McDonnell, TUI, 2014 Scholar / UK

Having lived and worked in Australia for 8 years, I’m incredibly excited about the prospect of The Marketing Academy arriving there. It has been a privilege for me to be involved in the Academy and I wouldn’t hesitate in nominating my peers and team members to join the program.

Adam Johnson, Marketing Director of Global Radio, 2012 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy has opened so many doors for me, it is unreal! I never thought when I was applying that I would get exposure to so many game makers in the industry.

The real benefit of The Marketing Academy however, is not all the amazing talks we are given, the business leaders we get to meet and the skills we learn but the ability to create real and hopefully career lasting friendships with the other 27 amazingly super talented and hungry individuals on the academy.

The legacy of the academy will last my whole career and I can’t thank Sherilyn and the team enough for that.

If you want the best training in the industry, you simply have to do everything in your power to get on The Marketing Academy, everything else pales in comparison.

Nick Parnell, Managing Partner, The Engine Group, 2010 Alumni / UK

The Scholarship is not just career changing, it’s life changing. It’s not comparable to any other programme out there; it’s proper ‘money can’t buy’ stuff. If there’s even a teeny chance you can get a place, then apply, apply, apply.

Sophie Wheater, Head of Brand and Communications at Tesco Mobile, 2013 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is a unique program, offering its 30-strong cohort the opportunity to learn from the UK’s top marketing and business talent. From CEO lunches to mentoring to coaching, the network and opportunity offered by Sherilyn and team is unparalleled and is supporting the development of new modern leaders. It’s been a privilege to be part of such a wonderful programme and personally, I’ve met some lifelong friends and hope to pay forward the learnings and experience.

Natasha Pergl, SAP, 2014 Scholar / UK

I applied looking for a network, some leadership frameworks and coaching and am leaving with SO much more – a set of lifelong friends, personal growth, clarity on my purpose and optimism for the future.Who knew so much was possible in just 7 months!

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

Not just brilliant content but also a great opportunity to get to know and discuss issues with like minded CMOs.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

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!

Sarah Cowl, Aviva, 2014 Scholar / UK

A one-of-a-kind leadership development experience every marketer wish they had.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

After changing career for 3 times and across 4 continents I finally landed on The Marketing Academy, a platform that gave roots to my marketing passion and wings to my dreams of changing the world! Now I can lead from where I stand, wherever it may be.

Scholar Alumni, 2016 / Australia

I didn’t have a peer network in New York until the Marketing Academy. It is testament to the selection process that everyone was so different and so brilliant in equal measure. Taking the time to think about who we want to be and how has been instrumental to how I’ve shown up at work and in life for the last six months. The Marketing Academy teaches that self improvement isn’t self indulgent. An important lesson when dealing with the pressure and pace of marketing today.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

It’s a program that starts with 9 months, and lasts a lifetime.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The best journey into ME ever. Get ready to rock, laugh, share, cry, discuss, create and challenge your inner you!
