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

Definitely life-changing. Can’t thank you enough for bringing these wonderful human beings (not only successful professionals) to my life.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

Normally when you go to a conference you have 1 or 2 speakers that are brilliant, but I found every single one provided some piece of brilliance for me to take away.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

My spirit overfloweth with the gospel of marketing’s great power.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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.

Paul Risdale, Controller of Marketing and Media, ITV, 2011 Scholar / UK

This is not just any marketing programme…

EMEA Fellow Alumni /

For me the Academy has all been about sharing. I still can’t believe the insights and stories that have been shared by industry leaders, faculty partners and the brilliant minds of scholars. This community of sharing has opened up a completely different future for me.

Esme Roger, L’oreal, 2014 Scholar / UK

It’s hard to sum up into words just how incredibly life-changing The Marketing Academy is as a program.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

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.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US
