Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...
As dramatic as it sounds, it is a life changing program. Be accepting to change as a human being, a leader, a marketer and a change maker – because that will happen. Without a doubt, this is the best education or self-improvement experience I’ve done, and the one I’ve had the most tangible results and improvements from. Now just don’t let the cultish language of the Alumni scare you- it just really is that good and we all believe in it that much.
Walk over burning coals, broken glass, molten lava, hot phone lines and hard pavements to get on this programme.

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!
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 program was the ultimate elixir – waking me up from career-malaise and time fatigue, allowing me to become deeply aware of who I am at my core, and how I want to show up in the world.
The Marketing Academy Scholarship is like no other learning experience I’ve had before. Forget textbooks, assignments and exams – it’s all about learning from inspirational leaders, being more self-aware and ultimately becoming the leader you want to be whilst being yourself!
Sherilyn has shown amazing vision, passion and skill in rapidly building a new ‘brand’ (The Marketing Academy) – and one that every marketer in the country wants to be associated with.

Bootcamp had the best assembly of speakers I’ve ever experienced.
The first thing I was delighted by, when day one of The Marketing Academy commenced, was the extremely high calibre of speakers for the bootcamp. This was quickly followed by the realisation that the other 29 Scholars were some of the most talented, ambitious and nice yet ego-less peers that I had met in our industry. The nine-month program has given me unparalleled access to and inspiration from the top talent of our industry, from TMA scholars and speakers, to mentors and coaches. The scholars’ personal and professional growth has been significant, with many outcomes shared at our final bootcamp, including promotions, payrises, increased gravitas, better industry profiles and personal milestones reached. I canÕt recommend this program highly enough, it lifts the emotional intelligence and cohesiveness of the whole industry.
Becoming part of the Scholarship has changed my life. I have been given access to people I have only ever read about who happily share all their pearls of wisdom with me. I have been taught leadership skills that have truly changed my outlook not only in my working life but in my personal life too – skills which I am now using to become the person I want to be. I still every day think about how lucky I have been to be a part of this amazing opportunity and urge anyone considering being involved to do everything you can to be part of this.
The Marketing Academy has given me access to a wide range of people who have candidly shared their knowledge and experiences with me. Understanding their different approaches and views has helped me better shape my objectives, given me tools to improve my leadership style, and made me realize the true worth of building my own brand.
Inspirational; informative; and insightful – it’s not often you can say that about a development programme
The programme will really open you up to your true potential, make it real and give you the tools you need to achieve it.
A thoughtfully designed journey through the unbearable lightness of leadership.
The scholarship gave me tools and awareness to elevate my leadership style, executive presence, and advance my career at an accelerated rate. I am now in a leadership position on my team, which I thought I was years away from achieving.
The Scholarship has transformed my way of thinking and helped my development to become a better leader. It has made me realize what my values are, which now recognized is benefiting both myself and those around me. I have met some really inspirational people and have received invaluable advice and mentoring which will help me on my journey through the rest of my career.
The best journey into ME ever. Get ready to rock, laugh, share, cry, discuss, create and challenge your inner you!
