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 a truly game-changing program, the most valuable learning experience I’ve had. It has already and will continue to raise the standards and profile of our entire industry.
When I look back on my career on the night of my retirement, I’m fairly certain I’ll conclude my year on The Marketing Academy was the pivotal point in transforming my journey, and ultimately the person I’ve gone on to become.
A one-of-a-kind leadership development experience every marketer wish they had.
The Marketing Academy is a phenomenal opportunity to learn direct from leaders whilst also working on your own development through career coaching and mentoring for a selected charity. This is a money-canÕt-buy experience and I cannot recommend it highly enough – I feel very lucky to have had this experience!
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.
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.
The Marketing Academy still feels a bit unreal. Every time I have a mentoring session, attend a faculty or we go to boot camp I literally have to pinch myself. The opportunities that The Marketing Academy gives us are so amazing, at times you can’t get your head around the fact that all this has been opened up to you. The access to senior marketers and the insights they are sharing with us and the inspiration they are giving us to become the best marketing leaders that we can be, the skills and learnings we take from the faculties, the support and direction we are getting from our coaches, the sense of purpose and fulfilment that working with our Donate28 charities brings and the bond we are forming with our fellow scholars – on their own these things would be amazing, but together in one intense program, it’s literally life changing stuff. It’s challenging and exciting and uplifting, I’m loving every moment and I can’t believe we are over half way through already. I want to press pause and take stock to make sure I have properly taken in everything I’ve been exposed to, but of course you can’t and it continues to wrap us up and carry us away on our fast paced journey of development. I feel very very fortunate
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.
They say there is no limit to the brain’s desire to learn. The learnings we have gathered through this incredible journey has certainly tested that assumption!
This Scholarship has made me feel younger. The future is clearer and the path to get there has more helping hands than ever!
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.
After changing career for 3 times and across 4 continents I finally landed on The Marketing Academy, a platform that gave roots to my marketing passion and wings to my dreams of changing the world! Now I can lead from where I stand, wherever it may be.
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.
There’s nothing quite like The Marketing Academy, the talent and diversity of the people you meet equals pure inspiration and learning at its best.
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.
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.
I’ve been on many courses, to many lectures, and read many books, but nothing has had the transformation impact on my leadership potential, style, and performance, that The Marketing Academy has. It is simply the definitive scheme for future marketing and business leaders.
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.
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 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.
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!
