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 community around the world have said about our programmes

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.

These talented individuals will become the industry leaders of tomorrow.

 

Gail Gallie, Co-Founder, Project Everyone / UK

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.

Tom Probert, Head of Sales & Marketing, Powershop NZ ltd, 2012 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

It’s a program that starts with 9 months, and lasts a lifetime.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

For anyone serious about demonstrating the strategic leadership and contribution that marketers can make, not just in their organisations but in the industry and society more widely, then unashamedly do everything you can to earn a place in The Marketing Academy. The experience of the bootcamp, mentoring and coaching is truly unique and impossible to put a price on.

Scholar alumni, 2015 / Australia

I feel truly overwhelmed to have been chosen to be part of such an exceptional scholarship. I cannot say thank you enough to Sherilyn and The Marketing Academy team, the mentors and, of course, my fellow scholars for making this entire experience phenomenal. I’ve been truly inspired by you all and I know that I’m already a better leader and, hopefully (!), a better person because of it.

Charlotte Greenaway, 2011 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy Scholarship Program is the start of an amazing journey that has helped me realize the leader I already was. I’m now able to articulate my passion, have a clear purpose and have a network of amazing people who have all been on this journey together. ItÕs helped me realize what my potential can be whilst unleashing a passion to inspire and influence people in my life to think about things differently and be the change they want to see.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

What has really stood out for me, is the journey towards authentic leadership: The Marketing Academy encourages the scholars to develop their own personal leadership styles, and have confidence in their ability to inspire others to do the same. There is no cookie-cutter mould, and indeed the Marketing Academy embraces the variety & diversity of its scholars, each with wholly different approaches to business and leadership. What binds us all however, is a desire to lead and inspire, rather than direct and manage. Being connected with some of the UKÕs top business men & women, being coached by top professionals, being brought together with some of the most exciting & interesting peers possible, how could we not be inspired to up our game and push our potential to the next level?

Sophia Wetherell, Industry Manager – Technology, Google, 2012 Scholar / UK

10, 15 or 20 years from now, the scholarship at Marketing Academy will be seen as the defining point of my career. The lessons weÕre learning from the best minds in business may not immediately effect our actions today but it will empower us to be better leaders of tomorrow.

Steven Woodgate, Surface Marketing, Microsoft, 2014 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is an exciting and long needed investment to increase the resource pool of new Marketeers.

 

Steve Back, Marketing Academy Board Member / UK

The Marketing Academy is awesome. Initially just being accepted on the course is a wonderful acknowledgement of your abilities and your potential Ð and then meeting your incredible fellow scholars is both humbling and inspiring as you realize you are considered as part of that peer group. The training, coaching and mentoring you receive is extraordinary, even more so when you consider that all of those people are giving their time for free. IÕve also found working with my charity extremely rewarding as itÕs helped me realise quite how valuable my expertise can be! In fact, I am learning more about myself than I thought possible and I am sure that, in years to come, I will look back on the Marketing Academy as a significant turning point in my career.

Virginia Barnes, Global Head of Customer Propositions, Aviva, 2012 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy: An intense year of learning, self reflection, inspiration and friendship that is truly character defining. Allowing young talent access to a toolkit of skills that will equip them and those around them to reach their greatest potential.

A journey that will truly have a positive impact on your life. In an environment with like minded peers, passionate in achieving their potential and a support network that truly inspire and believe in you to make it happen!

Adam Henderson, 2011 Scholar / UK

A wonderfully rich, varied and rewarding learning platform for every aspiring marketing leader. In isolation, each of the Marketing Academy faculties is worth the rigorous application process. In sum, they constitute a program that is unique in mission, broad in scope and blessed with industry mentors that would top any young marketers lunch wish-list. A ready-made marketing network for the next ten years of your life.

Adam Kennedy, Managing Director, Brisbane at Y&R ANZ, 2012 Scholar / UK

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

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.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Marketing Academy is not only career-defining, it’s life-changing. I have learned more than I could have possibly imagined from the inspirational speakers, mentors, my coach and of course the other brilliant scholars. I think everyone takes something different out of the program depending on their own vision and purpose and development areas, but for me the coaching on taking control of your own outcomes, becoming a key person of influence, and “daring to begin before you are ready” has had the most impact.

Sara McCraight, Head of Marketing, Coco di Mama, 2015 Scholar / UK

Three words describe this year for me Ð gain, grow and give. YouÕll gain so much personally and professionally, more than you ever thought was possible. YouÕll grow incredibly quickly as a result, stretching your capability beyond its limits. By the end, all youÕll want to do is give back to those around you, so they can benefit from at least a fraction of the experience youÕve had.

Cristina Loaiza, Global Head of Brand, graze.com, 2016 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is the single best leadership training you can receive, highlighting the massive difference between being a great marketer and a great marketing leader. It’s also broadened my horizon’s enormously by linking me up with a hugely talented group of likeminded marketers.

Nick Gilmer, Marketing Manager BBC1 and iPlayer, BBC, 2016 Scholar / UK

A standout program which provides a stimulating experience for the scholars, while driving tangible skills-building.
