During the event there will also be the opportunity to win mentoring sessions.

Tickets for the raffle will be released in the next few weeks, and will also be available to purchase on the day. Raffle ticket price is £5.00, and all donations will to the Marketing Academy Apprenticeship programme.

We donate 100% of our profits to The Marketing Academy Apprenticeship Programme. Since 2014 Inspire has raised over £30,000 (funding two full year’s apprenticeships) with the ambition of doubling this by 2017. The programme gives young people in the UK from non-privilaged backgrounds the opportunity to gain work experience, training and qualifications that may otherwise be unattainable.

Sherilyn Shackell, Founder of the Marketing Academy says “The Inspire Conference has to be one of my favourite things in the entire Marketing Academy calendar. Filled with hugely engaging speakers and quality content, the energy in the room is always palpable. It’s a way for us to share some Marketing Academy magic with the whole industry and at the same time raise some money for our Merlin’s Apprentice Fund. The conference had already changed the lives of young people by funding Apprenticeships so it really is a game changing conference, for everyone involved.”
