What People Say about The Marketing Academy...

Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...
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 should be compulsory for everyone.
Winning a place on the Fellowship is like a lottery win for ambitious senior marketers seeking personal development. You really need to commit the time to the sessions to get the value back. The first thing I noticed was the quality of the Fellowship cohort – some of the very best Marketing Directors/CMOs from the top brands across several sectors. I feel privileged to have spent so much time with this class bunch. It’s really interesting to share experiences & understand that many have the same dreams and anxieties as you. Hopefully we’ll stay in close touch as our careers evolve. The programme is hugely well supported by top class talent from the likes of McKinsey, Slaughter & May, Freuds, Spencer Stuart etc. – they really roll out the big guns. Who better to learn from! I’ve been going through some major career decision points during the programme and the quality of the coaching & mentoring support here has been first class – and helped crystallise some big changes. My only grumble – it’ll be over soon!
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.
A real luxury to have the opportunity to step out of the day to day job to meet some inspirational people and learn how to hone my personal leadership style.
The Fellowship is a fantastic experience, giving access to faculty materials, insider experience from senior mentors and a close peer network that you cannot access anywhere else. Amazing, humbling and great fun.
A set of experiences, encounters and people that have had an incredibly profound effect on my life. I will look back on this as one of those moments where things changed forever. Remember: the way of the river!
The Marketing Academy Fellowship is a great programme – think of it as the best bits of an MBA.
My selection in The Marketing Academy is truly a privilege. It has afforded my the opportunity to improve my self, the way I lead my team, access to the most brilliant minds in the business, and to develop a peer group who I know will remain my friends for life. The combination of training, mentoring, coaching and inspiration will be experiences that shape my career for years to come.
The value is not simply the calibre of people who give up their time to talk, mentor and host. It’s the huge amount of themselves that they put into it when they do that makes it invaluable. It’s inspiring and humbling to be a part of such a varied group of people as those in my cohort. People I know are going to shape the future of our industry. They are not teaching us to manage. They are enabling us to lead.
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.
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.
Just Do It! The Marketing Academy is the most special learning experience there is – imagine combining the most amazing bunch of people, learning from the best in the business & having permission to take the time to really craft and think about what matters most to become the best version of yourself – both professionally and personally. You will leave inspired with a clear purpose and clarity on who you are, the life you want and the steps to help you become the best leader you can be. You’ll challenge yourself in a way you have never done before, ask yourself questions you have never thought about and never look at things in the same way again – I cannot recommend it highly enough, it’s the experience of a lifetime.
There’s nothing quite like The Marketing Academy, the talent and diversity of the people you meet equals pure inspiration and learning at its best.
I thought I would come out of the Scholarship a changed person, instead I ended up finding myself.
The Marketing Academy is rocket fuel for your career and personal development. Just being around 30 fantastic, sharp people for 12 months, is beneficial in itself. Adding world class leadership training to the equation, a business coach and the chance to assist a small charity, and you have an enormously powerful program. Quite simply you’ll never be the same again after being an MA Scholar.
I am now so much better equipped for my current job, let alone what comes next.
A catalyst for growth and development unlike any other.
Delivering the most profound impact on my career and life.
Being a part of the Marketing Academy is like winning the National Lottery when it’s a double rollover. It has changed my life forever in the most positive way and allows me to share great things with people around me.
