We have a team of exceptional Mentors and Speakers who volunteer their time to work with our Scholars and Fellows to develop and nurture their talent. These leaders are CEOs, MDs, CMOs, SVPs, and subject matter experts with experience across all industry sectors. Like us, they have a love for talent development, are dedicated to the achievement of marketing excellence and are keen to share their knowledge and experience. These are just some of the business leaders supporting the UK Programmes as Mentors and speakers. Please note this list is added to throughout the year until the beginning of each programme.
