What People Say about The Marketing Academy...
Our Australia Scholarship programme is sponsored by:
Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programmes...
Becoming part of the Scholarship has changed my life. I have been given access to people I have only ever read about who happily share all their pearls of wisdom with me. I have been taught leadership skills that have truly changed my outlook not only in my working life but in my personal life too – skills which I am now using to become the person I want to be. I still every day think about how lucky I have been to be a part of this amazing opportunity and urge anyone considering being involved to do everything you can to be part of this.
The Marketing Academy has far exceeded my expectations. I have met some really inspirational and interesting senior Marketing leaders who have been both generous and honest in sharing their advice and experiences- I have already developed an enviable list of contacts and that will only expand by the end of the academy!
If I was to give one piece of advice to any talented, ambitious Marketeer it would be to do everything you can to try and secure a place on the Marketing Academy- it’s an experience that will benefit you for years to come.
I have been involved in lots of training and development in the past but nothing comes close to the Marketing Academy. The unique combination of coaching, leadership training, mentoring, faculty days and working with a charity delivers a fantastic combination of experiences and learning. In summary it’s just great!
The five days we were together as a group was so much more then I could ever have imagined, in my head I knew I would learn something, but I never thought that it would change my outlook so dramatically. I described it to someone over the weekend as a sliding door moment from which point things changed both personally and at work.
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 Program rocked my world and pulled back the curtain on just how big of a difference true leadership can make–far beyond the confines of the marketing profession to everything that we do.
The Marketing Academy Fellowship: insightful, inspirational, empowering and connecting, it’s the best professional and personal development I have done in years!
A tribe of kinfolk bonded by a desire to change the world through marketing, the power of shared vulnerability, and the collective belief that by taking charge of our own histories & narratives we empower those we influence to do the same. (Quote by Derek Daniels – who says it better than I ever could!)
The first thing I was delighted by, when day one of The Marketing Academy commenced, was the extremely high calibre of speakers for the bootcamp. This was quickly followed by the realisation that the other 29 Scholars were some of the most talented, ambitious and nice yet ego-less peers that I had met in our industry. The nine-month programme has given me unparalleled access to and inspiration from the top talent of our industry, from TMA scholars and speakers, to mentors and coaches. The scholars’ personal and professional growth has been significant, with many outcomes shared at our final bootcamp, including promotions, payrises, increased gravitas, better industry profiles and personal milestones reached. I can’t recommend this programme highly enough, it lifts the emotional intelligence and cohesiveness of the whole industry.
When I look back on my career on the night of my retirement, I’m fairly certain I’ll conclude my year on The Marketing Academy was the pivotal point in transforming my journey, and ultimately the person I’ve gone on to become.
Pulling together over 80 marketing director mentors, numerous organisational facilities and 28 scholars has been an amazing achievement.

I’m still coming down from the high! I am changed as a person in the best possible way, and I found this experience incredibly rewarding and fulfilling from both a professional and personal perspective.
I can safely say The Marketing Academy is one of the most fulfilling, valuable and enjoyable things I’ve been a part of – helping me develop professionally and personally, become a more purpose driven leader, and connect with some of the nicest, most ambitious folks in the marketing industry.
The Marketing Academy Scholarship Programme is not only an unrivalled combination of inspiration and education from industry leaders, marketing moguls and professional coaches, it’s a unique opportunity to stand still and reflect on your personal motivations, aspirations and purpose. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll emerge with the tangible skills, tools and beliefs to progress your professional and personal life.
Amazing experience, life changing. Thank you for making this happen. We hope we were worth it.
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.
A standout programme which provides a stimulating experience for the scholars, while driving tangible skills-building.
Bootcamp had the best assembly of speakers I’ve ever experienced.
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 has been a real accelerator to my development. The insight I have gained into myself, the marketing profession and leadership in addition to the fantastic connections I’ve made, has been a unique and priceless experience.
Phenomenal experience that has changed the way I look at not only my professional world, but my entire world.
