Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...
The Marketing Academy is an incredible programme run by dedicated, passionate people. It doesn’t just help you realize your potential. It helps you re-imagine the limit of your potential.
A defining moment in your career that will transform you into a better leader and a better human being.
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.
The Marketing Academy is an incredibly unique opportunity that will give see you grow and develop more as a person than you could ever imagine. There’s nothing else that exists that sees you get such a high calibre leadership training, mentoring from highly revered figures in the industry and the chance to meet, and befriend, 29 utterly fantastic people. The simplest way to sum it up would be “career rocket fuel”. I couldn’t encourage anyone enough who is ambitious, and hungry to learn, to apply.
Without actually getting into the specific bootcamp content, it was actually the process of getting everybody to bring themselves, take off their masks, and expose their true self that really made the entire week so powerful. And likewise the giving thanks at the end of the program. It really brought the group together on a very, very deep personal level, and made us bond very quickly. As a key takeout for me, I feel that as a result of this, the depth of the experience, and the strength of the relationships that come out of it are going to be really powerful and lasting.
I’m not one for soppy stories but I have truly become a better person as an output of the Scholarship. Never have I revised, reflected and refined myself so much. I am truly grateful to have been given the time to just think about the leader I want to be, not have to be. Priceless.
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.
It is for good reason that so many individuals, organisations and publications are prepared to give what they can to further the Academy. The mentors, the coaches, the founders, the Academy’s board directors – we all back this scheme because we can see that the benefits to our industry make it a no-brainer.
Given unexpected changes at work during the course of the program, I am particularly grateful for the development I received and the boost of good people in my network, I would not have otherwise met. The Marketing Academy, has provided me with tools and the confidence to show up authentically in everything I do.
Phenomenal experience that has changed the way I look at not only my professional world, but my entire world.
The Marketing Academy should be compulsory for everyone.
The Scholarship Program was an incredible experience and provided connections and friends I’ll keep for life!
A truly remarkable, once in a lifetime, opportunity to learn from the very best marketers and leaders in the UK. Each part of the Marketing Academy jigsaw influences and compliments the other so well – from the coaching and mentoring, to faculties and giving back through charitable support – every up and coming marketer worth their salt should be considering applying.
A rare opportunity to invest time in your career growth. TMA allows you the time and resources to reflect, learn and grow as a leader while making enduring connections with peers and leaders within the US marketing landscape.
If marketing is about spotting opportunities and innovating into those opportunities with creative products that surprise and delight audiences – then the unique ‘product’ that is The Marketing Academy fits the bill.
It is a real privilege to have been a Marketing Academy Scholar. It is such a special experience through which I’ve had the chance to meet, learn and be inspired by so many wonderful people.
I truly believe The Marketing Academy to be the most inspiring, creative and effective professional development programme in the industry – if not the world. It is phenomenal that, with the support of our partners, it can be offered to scholars for free – when the coaching, network, learning opportunities and development skills you get match that of an MBA. I feel incredibly privileged to have been part of the inaugural year and it would be no exaggeration to say that I draw on my learnings from that year every day. There are few experiences so genuinely guaranteed to change your life, and I thank everyone involved for making that happen for me. Support it, apply for it, or nominate someone else, but find a way to get involved. I promise that you will reap the rewards.
The Marketing Academy programme gave me the opportunity and chance to reflect intensely on my role as a leader at work, at home, in life. This reflection has brought a greater sense of self awareness and positivity to everything I touch. Eternally grateful.
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!
It’s so much more than marketing. ‘Leadership Academy for Life where you make Lifelong Friends’ is probably more like it, although admittedly not as catchy.
