Chris Dodson, Head of Music & Subscriptions Marketing EMEA, Youtube, 2011 Scholar / UK

I am now so much better equipped for my current job, let alone what comes next.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

The Marketing Academy Scholarship Programme is the start of an amazing journey that has helped me realize the leader I already was. I’m now able to articulate my passion, have a clear purpose and have a network of amazing people who have all been on this journey together. It’s helped me realize what my potential can be whilst unleashing a passion to inspire and influence people in my life to think about things differently and be the change they want to see.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

The Fellowship is a great way for CMOs to achieve a gear-change in their development. What is striking is the similarity of the challenges that everyone across the cohort is facing in defining and achieving their next chapter, whether that be to secure a CEO next or in moving upwards in general. It is hard to imagine a year packed with more opportunities and stimulus to deepen understanding of what being CEO entails, and to figure out the journey towards that.

EMEA Fellow Alumni / Australia

The Marketing Academy Fellowship has been a life-changing experience, both professionally and personally.  It has been rich in variety, challenging and inspiring, and above all has offered the formation of a wonderful network of people sharing like-minded challenges.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

What has really stood out for me, is the journey towards authentic leadership: The Marketing Academy encourages the scholars to develop their own personal leadership styles, and have confidence in their ability to inspire others to do the same. There is no cookie-cutter mould, and indeed the Marketing Academy embraces the variety & diversity of its scholars, each with wholly different approaches to business and leadership. What binds us all however, is a desire to lead and inspire, rather than direct and manage. Being connected with some of the UK’s top business men & women, being coached by top professionals, being brought together with some of the most exciting & interesting peers possible, how could we not be inspired to up our game and push our potential to the next level?

Sophia Wetherell, Industry Manager – Technology, Google, 2012 Scholar / UK

The program has been everything I dreamed of and more. It has been genuinely transformational; it has changed the trajectory of my leadership and believe I will look back on it as a critical step in my journey. It has allowed me to distill down what I need to do over the new few years to grow my impact as a leader.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

Definitely life-changing. Can’t thank you enough for bringing these wonderful human beings (not only successful professionals) to my life.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Scholarship is a fast-track for your marketing skills, personal development, career and life. It provides an incredible learning experience for any ambitious and curious marketer or entrepreneur. The combination of bootcamps to inspire you, mentoring to guide you and coaching to help you make sense of it all ties the whole year together. And on top of all of that, you become a part of a family that is growing across the world and that is always there to help you even when your year is up!

Ben Tyson, Managing Director for Born Social, 2016 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy has been a gift. The people I’ve met, the insights I’ve gleaned and the leaps I’ve made personally and professionally have made a deep impact on my life. Grateful doesn’t begin to describe the way I feel about every single element of the experience.

Daianna Karaian, Founder, Thoughtful Works Ltd, 2012 Scholar / UK

A once-in-a-career opportunity to forge powerful personal connections with a diverse cohort of fellow marketing leaders across the entire industry.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

Incredibly insightful programme with the perfect balance of industry thought leadership, professional coaching, and personal leadership development. Authentic by design, I’ve found the course had helped me lead through my day-to-day and set the foundation for how I frame up and achieve my future leadership goals. This is an invaluable leadership programme for any marketer keen to accelerate their leadership potential.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

There are 3 things the Marketing Academy can guarantee. The first is that it will literally change your life. Your outlook on what can be achieved will be shifted. Secondly you will be inspired beyond belief. Post boot camps and mentor sessions make you realize the potential we have and the next steps on how to achieve it. Thirdly and most importantly the Scholarship will give you a broader approach to your role and position in your company. You instantly receive a better understanding of your team, career and strengths. You will know how to draw out the best in others and it will help you achieve the life you have always wanted within business. Apply now is my advice.

Nick Rogers, Channel Manager at WME-IMG, 2015 Scholar / UK

These are 3 big benefits I’m taking away from the Marketing Academy. It’s:

1. Ignited my passion to do more: to be the best leader I can be in all aspects of my life, and encourage others to do the same

2. Elevated my perceptiveness: so I’m now less afraid to try new approaches to situations and challenges

3. And best of all, provided me with a whole new support network through my fellow scholars: whose energy is totally infectious, and with whom I’ve created a special bond, like that of a family

If you’re curious and motivated to charge yourself up and grow into the best person you can be, then you will absolutely love the journey the scholarship takes you on. It’s provided a different way of thinking that will stay with me, always.

Emi Laughton-Knott, Head of Acquisition Marketing, BT, 2017 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy has been quite simply the most career-defining programme that I have ever been on. As well as providing access and insights from some amazing leaders across industries, the course also forces you to examine your own beliefs, motivations and ways of working. It is almost impossible not to come out the other side with a clearer sense of purpose, not only about your work but about your whole life.

Paul Risdale, Controller of Marketing and Media, ITV, 2011 Scholar / UK

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.

Cilla Snowball, Group Chairman and Group CEO, AMVBBDO / UK

I have not stopped raving about the week, just the first week! – it was one of my lifetime highlights.
