Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...

The Marketing Academy has been a gift. The people I’ve met, the insights I’ve gleaned and the leaps I’ve made personally and professionally have made a deep impact on my life. Grateful doesn’t begin to describe the way I feel about every single element of the experience.

Daianna Karaian, Founder, Thoughtful Works Ltd, 2012 Scholar / UK

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.

Sarah Tate, Global Sales Skills Developmen Lead at Google, 2011 Scholar / UK

Not only am I developing my industry knowledge and building a wider network of peers, I am learning the vital skills to progress from ÔmanagerÕ to ÔleaderÕ. ItÕs transformed my way of thinking and introduced me to some of the most remarkable people in the industry, both my fellow scholars and the mentors and coaches. Central to the academy ethos is Ôpay it forwardsÕ meaning that we should share and teach as much as we can. The Scholarship is enabling me to share resources with my peers both in the UK and in Canada and the US and I have no doubt I am learning lifelong skills.

Gemma Holmes, Head of Marketing Homesense UK, TK Maxx Group, 2015 Scholar / UK

The Scholarship has given me the training and the tools to really step up and lead in my organisation. I’ve become much more self aware and I can now spend time sharing the learnings with my team. I also feel so lucky to have the most incredible network of the brightest sparks in the industry to call friends.

2021 UK Scholar / UK

I always left a bootcamp more energised, positive and inspired than before it. The network is unbelievable and I cannot recommend it enough. i feel so fortunate to have been part of it and do not stop referencing it / talking about it to peers, friends and family.

2020 UK Scholar / UK

I’ve been incredibly energized and inspired by this entire experience. And I’m really looking forward to putting into practice what was discussed at boot camp, and contributing to key projects that the broader cohort is working on as part of our paying it forward goal.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

I have not stopped raving about the week, just the first week! – it was one of my lifetime highlights.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

The cliche “a life changing opportunity” is overused and often with little authenticity in business. Not when it comes to The Marketing Academy which exceeds the statement by some mileage. Be a part of it or you’ll never see just how amazing you can be.

Michelle Keaney, Chief Imaginer at Inventing Futures, 2010 Scholar / UK

An honour to be part of TMA. Amazing cohort of superstars and a brilliant line up of industry leading speakers. A very well structured program that helps take you to the next level. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

Inspirational; informative; and insightful – it’s not often you can say that about a development programme

EMEA Fellow Alumni /

Being a part of the Marketing Academy is like winning the National Lottery when it’s a double rollover. It has changed my life forever in the most positive way and allows me to share great things with people around me.

Bev Lam, 2010 Alumni / UK

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.

Phil Rumbol, Mentor and Trustee

Phil Rumbol, Founder, 101 / UK

The people involved in The Marketing Academy are some of the most inspiring, brightest and fun people you will ever meet. I’ve learnt so much about marketing, leadership and myself; someone told me before I joined that it would be life-changing, and I have not been disappointed.

2020 UK Scholar / UK

What I’ve taken away from TMA over the past few weeks will and has already started to shape and define who I want to be as a work colleague and as a husband, father and family member. I can’t remember being as excited as I am now about life and what stands in front of me.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

Just thank you. I can’t tell you how much you’ve challenged me into thinking ‘what work can be and what I can do’

2021 UK Scholar / UK

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.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

More valuable than an MBA.

2021 UK Scholar / UK

I applied looking for a network, some leadership frameworks and coaching and am leaving with SO much more – a set of lifelong friends, personal growth, clarity on my purpose and optimism for the future.Who knew so much was possible in just 7 months!

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

IÕm incredibly proud to be involved with the Scholarship Program. It brings talented individuals together in a powerful blend of training, mentoring and coaching which is completely free of charge. The benefits to mentors and mentees alike are mutually rewarding. The program has status, momentum and real influence now.

Cilla Snowball, Group Chairman and Group CEO, AMVBBDO / UK

The Marketing Academy Scholarship was a life-changing experience for me. I have gained wonderful friends received incredible advice from mentors and coaches, and it has helped me develop myself as a leader. I can’t recommend the Scholarship more!
