Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programmes
I can safely say The Marketing Academy is one of the most fulfilling, valuable and enjoyable things I’ve been a part of – helping me develop professionally and personally, become a more purpose driven leader, and connect with some of the nicest, most ambitious folks in the marketing industry.
I’m still coming down from the high! I am changed as a person in the best possible way, and I found this experience incredibly rewarding and fulfilling from both a professional and personal perspective.
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!
Inspirational; informative; and insightful – it’s not often you can say that about a development programme
It has been a huge privilege to be part of the 2017 TMA scholarship progam.
The Marketing Academy Fellowship: insightful, inspirational, empowering and connecting, it’s the best professional and personal development I have done in years!
The Marketing Academy has opened so many doors for me, it is unreal! I never thought when I was applying that I would get exposure to so many game makers in the industry.
The real benefit of The Marketing Academy however, is not all the amazing talks we are given, the business leaders we get to meet and the skills we learn but the ability to create real and hopefully career lasting friendships with the other 27 amazingly super talented and hungry individuals on the academy.
The legacy of the academy will last my whole career and I can’t thank Sherilyn and the team enough for that.
If you want the best training in the industry, you simply have to do everything in your power to get on The Marketing Academy, everything else pales in comparison.
The Scholarship Program was an incredible experience and provided connections and friends I’ll keep for life!
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.
The Marketing Academy was the second best thing that happened to me in 2018 (the first was getting married!). Joining Marketing Academy is like meeting a new work friend who is exceptionally well connected to executives, knows all the cool marketing people in your age group and just wants to get everyone together to have a party.
The program has been everything I dreamed of and more. It has been genuinely transformational; it has changed the trajectory of my leadership and believe I will look back on it as a critical step in my journey. It has allowed me to distill down what I need to do over the new few years to grow my impact as a leader.
I have not stopped raving about the week, just the first week! – it was one of my lifetime highlights.
The Marketing Academy is an incredible program run by dedicated, passionate people. It doesn’t just help you realize your potential. It helps you re-imagine the limit of your potential.
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.

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.
From my first mentor walking into our meeting with Kelly Brook on the roof of Soho house, to a CEO helping me craft my 100 day plan to land a promotion, the Marketing Academy has given me amazing access to some incredible people and some unforgettable moments.
The Marketing Academy has quite simply changed my life. It has completely changed the way that I think, not only as a marketing leader but as an individual. It has taught me so much about who I am, and helped me see the possibilities of what I can achieve. I feel hugely privileged to have met such an incredible group of scholars, mentors, coaches & industry leaders that have inspired me more than I ever thought possible. I know that I will look back in 10 years and see the Marketing Academy as the single biggest turning point in my life & career, and I would urge anyone to take the opportunity Ð it will be the best thing you ever do for you, and everyone around you.
From the point of deciding to apply for the Marketing Academy I have learnt more than I could have hoped for. Not only have I had the privilege of gaining invaluable mentoring, coaching and hearing from inspirational speakers, I have also learnt so much from my fellow scholars from different backgrounds. It’s been a unique and fantastically rewarding experience – you would have to be pretty mad to not want to be part of it!
Transformational. Life-affirming. Career-defining. They’re pretty big promises for a leadership program. But, oh my, does The Marketing Academy deliver. Guided by inspiring industry leaders and mentors, a truly remarkable coach and the most amazing group of fellow scholars, I have learnt more than I thought possible about who I am, who I want to be, and what I can accomplish Ð both professionally and personally. To put it simply, the experience has changed my life for the better, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
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.
