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 Marketing Academy is the most life changing program IÕve ever been on Ð imagine feeling like for the first time ever you know what your purpose is. Imagine understanding for the first time too how to go about getting that career you really want. Imagine feeling more inspired and empowered than ever before by incredible industry leaders from across the marketing industry. Finally, imagine having the opportunity to grow a brand new network of talented future leaders and friends. The Marketing Academy has been an indescribable experience so far Ð the journey I have been on has been almost magical and I canÕt thank the Academy, mentors, coaches and speakers enough for helping to shape the new professional I have become.

Sharrie Anderson, Senior Employee Engagement Manager, Burberry, 2016 Scholar / UK

If you want to meet others who can help you think differently about your objectives in work and the outcomes you are delivering, and at the same time learn more about how to grow your personal impact – then apply. You’ll make life long friends and a network more valuable than an MBA.

EMEA Fellow Alumni /

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.

Melanie Portelli, Transition Director, Publicis Groupe, 2010 Alumni / UK

The best journey into ME ever. Get ready to rock, laugh, share, cry, discuss, create and challenge your inner you!

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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!

Adam Holmes, Partner of Brother Film Co, 2017 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy has far exceeded my expectations. I have met some really inspirational and interesting senior Marketing leaders who have been both generous and honest in sharing their advice and experiences- I have already developed an enviable list of contacts and that will only expand by the end of the academy!

If I was to give one piece of advice to any talented, ambitious Marketeer it would be to do everything you can to try and secure a place on the Marketing Academy- it’s an experience that will benefit you for years to come.

I have been involved in lots of training and development in the past but nothing comes close to the Marketing Academy. The unique combination of coaching, leadership training, mentoring, faculty days and working with a charity delivers a fantastic combination of experiences and learning. In summary it’s just great!

Sarah Ellis, Managing Director of Gravity Road, 2011 Scholar / UK

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.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

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.

Sarah Tate, Global Sales Skills Developmen Lead at Google, 2011 Scholar / UK

This program was life changing! When I decided to apply to The Marketing Academy Scholarship, I knew I needed to make some changes in my life and career, but honestly didn’t know where to start. Who would have thought that after leaving the final boot camp that I’d have a clearly- articulated life purpose, and true career road map, and 29 colleagues I now consider family. I’ve never grown so close to a group of strangers so quickly. I well up with joy every time I think about my cohort, the TMA staff, and what I’ve gained.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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.

Neil Costello, Head of Marketing, Atom Bank, 2010 Alumni / UK

IÕm incredibly proud to be involved with the Scholarship Program. It brings talented individuals together in a powerful blend of training, mentoring and coaching which is completely free of charge. The benefits to mentors and mentees alike are mutually rewarding. The program has status, momentum and real influence now.

Cilla Snowball, Group Chairman and Group CEO, AMVBBDO / UK

I implore all ambitious marketeers to apply for The Marketing Academy. ItÕs an unimaginably rewarding experience. IÕll come out the other end of the course a different, more resilient, more inspired & more inspiring leader. IÕll also, I believe, be a better friend and good deal happier. The course is about so much more than core marketing skills. The experience is so much more than the services offered – IÕve had access to phenomenal mentoring, but also met twenty nine new best friends. Apply now. Trust me!

Lottie Unwin, Head of Marketing, Propercorn, 2017 Scholar / UK

Where else in the world do you get to meet such inspiring and insightful leaders of industry and have them call you a friend? These people won’t just tell you about how they’ve reached the top of their game, they will help guide you to follow in their footsteps. Be prepared for self-reflection, challenge and learning – but most of all be prepared for a roller coaster ride of emotion and creating friendships for life.

Victoria Hatcher, Senior Channel Strategy Manager, Danone, 2015 Scholar / UK

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!

Vicki McIvor, Group Strategy Manager, International Airlines Group, 2010 Alumni / UK

It’s incredible what you can learn and achieve in just six months. The Marketing Academy has enabled me not only make transformations within our business – in areas as diverse as leadership and culture to business goals and strategies – but has given me invaluable tools in personal leadership. I can genuinely say that The Marketing Academy will have a positive and meaningful impact on the legacy I play a part in building.

The Marketing Academy teaches you so much more than marketing, you learn to live and lead a better life. Every industry should have an Academy!

The ripple effect of The Marketing Academy is hard to fathom. It extends far beyond every Scholar and will last long after the year. Long may the learning, development, sharing and fantastic network of inspiring people continue!

Sorcha Harriman-Smith, 2011 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

Being in the Marketing Academy Scholarship program is the one of the best things have happened in my life. The Marketing Academy is not just about your career development, but your life: it is a once-in-life opportunity to help you refine yourself, find your goals, discover what matters the most to you, and develop leadership in your own style.

Joly Zou, Founder, Solocal, 2014 Scholar / UK

If Carlsberg did networks…

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

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

The Marketing AcademyÕs mission is to turn the marketing talent of today into the leaders of tomorrow, and thatÕs exactly what it does. Whilst Ronseal in its mission, it leaves you with a purpose that is Adidas, a motivation that is Nike, and an ability to think like Apple. ItÕs the perfect program to build your own brand that will help you progress in both your professional and personal life.
