Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programmes
I clearly wanted to make it onto the Academy but I did not know too much about it. Having had just the first week – if I had known how good it is I would have been DESPERATE to make the final 30 and absolutely gutted if I would have missed out. It was such an amazing week and I took so much out of it, can’t thank you enough.
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 Marketing Academy, quite simply, redefines you. It changes the way you see yourself, it changes the way you want other people to see you, and it changes the person you want to be in the future. And you learn all this with the support of the most incredible network: the scholars who go through it with you, the mentors who never fail to inspire you and the business coach who helps you make sense of it all. Anyone who has an ambition to be a leader in the marketing world should apply.
It’s so much more than marketing. ‘Leadership Academy for Life where you make Lifelong Friends’ is probably more like it, although admittedly not as catchy.
From my first mentor walking into our meeting with Kelly Brook on the roof of Soho house, to a CEO helping me craft my 100 day plan to land a promotion, the Marketing Academy has given me amazing access to some incredible people and some unforgettable moments.
The Marketing Academy Fellowship: insightful, inspirational, empowering and connecting, it’s the best professional and personal development I have done in years!
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 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.
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 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.
My spirit overfloweth with the gospel of marketing’s great power.
It’s incredible what you can learn and achieve in just six months. The Marketing Academy has enabled me not only make transformations within our business – in areas as diverse as leadership and culture to business goals and strategies – but has given me invaluable tools in personal leadership. I can genuinely say that The Marketing Academy will have a positive and meaningful impact on the legacy I play a part in building.
The Marketing Academy teaches you so much more than marketing, you learn to live and lead a better life. Every industry should have an Academy!
The ripple effect of The Marketing Academy is hard to fathom. It extends far beyond every Scholar and will last long after the year. Long may the learning, development, sharing and fantastic network of inspiring people continue!
It’s hard work, great fun and now it’s up to us Alumni to make history. Excellent programme – hope we can live up to it!
The Marketing Academy has been an amazing experience. To learn from people that have been there and developed in the industry is honestly priceless. In no other network or environment have I been in such a position that has enabled me to grow and learn on both a personal and professional level. It is like nothing I’ve done before and if you’re looking to develop yourself and your career I couldn’t recommend it more highly.
When I applied for The Marketing Academy, I didn’t really know too much about it, so whilst I really wanted to get onto the program I wasn’t desperate.
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 Scholarship Program is not only an unrivalled combination of inspiration and education from industry leaders, marketing moguls and professional coaches, itÕs a unique opportunity to stand still and reflect on your personal motivations, aspirations and purpose. YouÕll laugh, youÕll cry and youÕll emerge with the tangible skills, tools and beliefs to progress your professional and personal life.
The Marketing Academy was more than I imagined it could be and more than I can explain to those around me. The quality of speakers and the structure of boot camp ensured that every session opened your eyes to something new and yet the common theme of leadership was presence throughout. The way I look to approach situations has changed and I can now see how to get more from every opportunity and individual. I have walked away from boot camp knowing more about myself, my peers and my industry. The other twenty nine who were on the boot camp I now call friends, understanding what motivates them and how to work better with them.
The Marketing Academy was the second best thing that happened to me in 2018 (the first was getting married!). Joining Marketing Academy is like meeting a new work friend who is exceptionally well connected to executives, knows all the cool marketing people in your age group and just wants to get everyone together to have a party.
The Marketing Academy is an unparalleled opportunity to expose yourself to leading marketers, innovators, leaders and like minded scholars. It’s impossible to not be inspired and motivated into becoming, not only a better leader and marketer, but a better person too. Grab this opportunity with both hands and hopefully you’ll get the chance to see that I’m not exaggerating…
A key element of nurturing talent is exposure; exposure to inspiring leaders and thinkers who, merely through spending a couple of hours with them, make a direct impact on your skill set and understanding of the industry you work in. There is nothing quite like the Marketing Academy for exposing talent to today’s leading marketers. It’s a personal development opportunity not to be missed!
