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 Scholars in the UK and Australia have said about The Scholarship program...

Before The Marketing Academy I thought I was great at my job and an asset to my company – I now have a broader approach to my role, team and career, a better understanding of my strengths, how to ignite the best in other people and a clearer sense of how my career can help me achieve the life I want to live.

Liz Le Breton, Head of Brand & Social, John Lewis, 2013 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy was more than I imagined it could be and more than I can explain to those around me. The quality of speakers and the structure of boot camp ensured that every session opened your eyes to something new and yet the common theme of leadership was presence throughout. The way I look to approach situations has changed and I can now see how to get more from every opportunity and individual. I have walked away from boot camp knowing more about myself, my peers and my industry. The other twenty nine who were on the Ôboot campÕ I now call friends, understanding what motivates them and how to work better with them.

Scholar alumni, 2015 / Australia

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.

James Eder, Founder & Director at The Beans Group, 2012 Scholar / UK

It is for good reason that so many individuals, organisations and publications are prepared to give what they can to further the Academy. The mentors, the coaches, the founders, the Academy’s board directors – we all back this scheme because we can see that the benefits to our industry make it a no-brainer.

 

Mark Choueke, Co-Founder of CHOUEKE / UK

There are 3 things the Marketing Academy can guarantee. The first is that it will literally change your life. Your outlook on what can be achieved will be shifted. Secondly you will be inspired beyond belief. Post boot camps and mentor sessions make you realize the potential we have and the next steps on how to achieve it. Thirdly and most importantly the Scholarship will give you a broader approach to your role and position in your company. You instantly receive a better understanding of your team, career and strengths. You will know how to draw out the best in others and it will help you achieve the life you have always wanted within business. Apply now is my advice.

Nick Rogers, Channel Manager at WME-IMG, 2015 Scholar / UK

I support the Marketing Academy as it is simply irresistible. You get to spend time and help brilliant hand-picked scholars and they leave you excited and thrilled for the future of the industry.

Amanda Mackenzie, CMO of Aviva / UK

A ready-made marketing network for the next ten years of your life.

Phenomenal experience that has changed the way I look at not only my professional world, but my entire world.

Scholar alumni, 2016 / Australia

The Marketing Academy is a unique program, offering its 30-strong cohort the opportunity to learn from the UKÕs top marketing and business talent. From CEO lunches to mentoring to coaching, the network and opportunity offered by Sherilyn and team is unparalleled and is supporting the development of new modern leaders. ItÕs been a privilege to be part of such a wonderful program and personally, IÕve met some lifelong friends and hope to pay forward the learnings and experience.

Natasha Pergl, SAP, 2014 Scholar / UK

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.

Bryn Snelson, 2011 Scholar / UK

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 is an incredibly unique opportunity that will give see you grow and develop more as a person than you could ever imagine. There’s nothing else that exists that sees you get such a high calibre leadership training, mentoring from highly revered figures in the industry and the chance to meet, and befriend, 29 utterly fantastic people. The simplest way to sum it up would be “career rocket fuel”. I couldn’t encourage anyone enough who is ambitious, and hungry to learn, to apply.

Jonny Miles-Prouten, 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

Hands down the best thing I have done for my career. Great people, inspiring mentors, motivating coaches and a really reliable support network. Highly recommended.

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.
