What People Say about The Marketing Academy...
Our UK programmes are sponsored by:
Don't just take our word for it. This is what our Scholars in the UK and Australia have said about The Scholarship program...
I’m not one for soppy stories but I have truly become a better person as an output of the Scholarship. Never have I revised, reflected and refined myself so much. I am truly grateful to have been given the time to just think about the leader I want to be, not have to be. Priceless.
An experience like no other, it’s insane the incredible stuff you learn. I’ve been totally inspired by the people IÕve met and the things I’ve had the most inspirational year of my life. The Marketing Academy has been without doubt the most important thing in building my professional confidence. I now feel ready to take on anything.
The Marketing Academy, without wanting to be a cliche, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s not just about networking and mentoring, it’s about building relationships with people who will help you become a strong leader and a technically excellent marketer.
Before The Marketing Academy I thought I was great at my job and an asset to my company – I now have a broader approach to my role, team and career, a better understanding of my strengths, how to ignite the best in other people and a clearer sense of how my career can help me achieve the life I want to live.
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 Scholarship is a fast-track for your marketing skills, personal development, career and life. It provides an incredible learning experience for any ambitious and curious marketer or entrepreneur. The combination of bootcamps to inspire you, mentoring to guide you and coaching to help you make sense of it all ties the whole year together. And on top of all of that, you become a part of a family that is growing across the world and that is always there to help you even when your year is up!
They say there is no limit to the brain’s desire to learn. The learnings we have gathered through this incredible journey has certainly tested that assumption!
This Scholarship has made me feel younger. The future is clearer and the path to get there has more helping hands than ever!
The Scholarship thus far has exceeded all my expectations and once I get my house in order, i.e. wrapping up this experience, I know it has profoundly enriched me as an individual, leader and marketer. I feel so fortunate having received this opportunity and living the experience every day, and once it is all over, I will greatly miss it, but also recognize my responsibility to make the most of it in my life and career going forward!
These talented individuals will become the industry leaders of tomorrow.
An extraordinary program of learning that will benefit the whole industry for years to come.
A standout program which provides a stimulating experience for the scholars, while driving tangible skills-building.
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.
Phenomenal experience that has changed the way I look at not only my professional world, but my entire world.
The Marketing Academy offers professional development like no other. I feel like it has elevated my thinking to another level and that in years to come I will look back at it being a really crucial, wholly positive juncture in my career. ItÕs about more than just career development though. As part of the Scholarship I have met some of the loveliest and most impressive people. If they are up for it then IÕll be their friend for life.
A truly remarkable, once in a lifetime, opportunity to learn from the very best marketers and leaders in the UK. Each part of the Marketing Academy jigsaw influences and compliments the other so well – from the coaching and mentoring, to faculties and giving back through charitable support – every up and coming marketer worth their salt should be considering applying.
When I look back on my career on the night of my retirement, I’m fairly certain I’ll conclude my year on The Marketing Academy was the pivotal point in transforming my journey, and ultimately the person I’ve gone on to become.
The Marketing Academy has been a truly life changing, and life affirming experience. It has totally changed the way in which I view the opportunities that are presented to me, how I deal with challenges and conflict, and the role that I play as both a colleague and a leader in my organisation. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Apply! Apply!
Incredibly insightful program with the perfect balance of industry thought leadership, professional coaching, and personal leadership development. Authentic by design, I’ve found the course had helped me lead through my day-to-day and set the foundation for how I frame up and achieve my future leadership goals. This is an invaluable leadership program for any marketer keen to accelerate their leadership potential.
I feel like all of my Christmases have come at once. You get out of life what you put in. Put all your effort into trying to get on the next intake of scholars, and you will get a life changing experience out.
This isn’t just any marketing course, this is a marketing course for the leaders of tomorrow.
Time taken to create your “Showcase Me” presentation = 10 hours, Intensive interviews = 2 hours, Being a scholar of the academy = Priceless.
6 months in, I am still pinching myself to see if I am dreaming!
