What People Say about The Marketing Academy...
The Marketing Academy UK is sponsored by:
Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...
More valuable than an MBA.
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!
The Marketing Academy has inspired me to transform the way I think about the C-suite. ItÕs gone from a pipedream to an attainable goal!
I truly believe The Marketing Academy to be the most inspiring, creative and effective professional development program in the industry – if not the world. It is phenomenal that, with the support of our partners, it can be offered to scholars for free – when the coaching, network, learning opportunities and development skills you get match that of an MBA. I feel incredibly privileged to have been part of the inaugural year and it would be no exaggeration to say that I draw on my learnings from that year every day. There are few experiences so genuinely guaranteed to change your life, and I thank everyone involved for making that happen for me. Support it, apply for it, or nominate someone else, but find a way to get involved. I promise that you will reap the rewards.
The Marketing Academy has been an amazing experience. To learn from people that have been there and developed in the industry is honestly priceless. In no other network or environment have I been in such a position that has enabled me to grow and learn on both a personal and professional level. It is like nothing I’ve done before and if you’re looking to develop yourself and your career I couldn’t recommend it more highly.
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 helps you answer questions you didn’t know you even had, and by the end, life makes a bit more sense.
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.
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.
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.
Becoming part of the Scholarship has changed my life. I have been given access to people I have only ever read about who happily share all their pearls of wisdom with me. I have been taught leadership skills that have truly changed my outlook not only in my working life but in my personal life too – skills which I am now using to become the person I want to be. I still every day think about how lucky I have been to be a part of this amazing opportunity and urge anyone considering being involved to do everything you can to be part of this.
You only need to look at the names of the mentors and board members involved in the Marketing Academy to see that this is a program like no other in the industry. A genuinely step changing program and a unique program of learning. And critically, because it’s free, it’s open to all- the only thing you need to bring is ability. A program that has a big role to play in the Marketing industry for many years to come.
A standout program which provides a stimulating experience for the scholars, while driving tangible skills-building.
The Marketing Academy Scholarship is lifechanging. That isn’t an overstatement, it genuinely is. Be prepared to shatter your perceptions of who you thought you were as a Marketing Leader and build yourself back up as a more empathetic, giving and multi-dimensional human. There’s a reason that so many people apply to the Scholarship. It’s a better education and experience than anything you will ever pay for.
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!
The Marketing Academy Fellowship has been a life-changing experience, both professionally and personally. It has been rich in variety, challenging and inspiring, and above all has offered the formation of a wonderful network of people sharing like-minded challenges.
The Marketing Academy Fellowship has been a life-changing experience. The programme gives CMOs the ammunition required to become CEOs and so much more. Fellows get access to the world’s best thought leaders on a whole range of C-suite topics from leadership to finance, as well as 1 to 1 mentorship from experienced CEOs who have been there done that. If you’re lucky enough to get into the Fellowship (which is by no means easy!) it’ll put your career on a course beyond all your imagined limits. It is, by far, the best programme for Senior Marketing Leaders out there, hands down!
A set of experiences, encounters and people that have had an incredibly profound effect on my life. I will look back on this as one of those moments where things changed forever. Remember: the way of the river!
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.
The Marketing Academy programme gave me the opportunity and chance to reflect intensely on my role as a leader at work, at home, in life. This reflection has brought a greater sense of self awareness and positivity to everything I touch. Eternally grateful.
