Inspire Events

Supporting the best marketing minds of this generation through learning and coaching

What is Inspire?

Our mission at Inspire is learning that’s good for everyone. We’re run by a group of up to 20 volunteers and across the year run a series of coaching breakfasts, leadership lectures and our flagship event Inspire Live.

100% of the money we raise is donated to The Marketing Academy Foundation programme supporting young people from diverse backgrounds who are not currently in work, education or training.

2018 has been our biggest year so far, including the 5th annual Inspire Live conference; a chance for 200 leaders to be inspired by the best our industry has to offer.

The Marketing Academy Inspire events have raised over 100k so far!

The best thing about coming to events like these is that they are really energetic, because people ask really good questions and you have time to reflect and go home with a ton of resolve. Everyone needs to take a moment for themselves, step out and really think about whether they are operating at the best and highest level and events like this really do that

Inspire London has to be one of my favourite events on the entire Marketing Academy calendar. Filled with hugely engaging speakers and quality content, the energy in the room is always palatable. It’s a way for us to share some Marketing Academy magic with the whole industry and at the same time raise money for our Merlin Apprenticeship Fund – it’s already changed the lives of many people so it really is a game-changing conference for everyone involved
