Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...

The five days we were together as a group was so much more then I could ever have imagined, in my head I knew I would learn something, but I never thought that it would change my outlook so dramatically. I described it to someone over the weekend as a sliding door moment from which point things changed both personally and at work.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

The Marketing Academy Fellowship: insightful, inspirational, empowering and connecting, it’s the best professional and personal development I have done in years!

EMEA Fellow Alumni /

The Marketing Academy should be compulsory for everyone.

Scholar alumni, 2016 / Australia

The Marketing Academy Scholarship Program rocked my world and pulled back the curtain on just how big of a difference true leadership can make–far beyond the confines of the marketing profession to everything that we do.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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 Marketing Academy offers professional development like no other. I feel like it has elevated my thinking to another level and that in years to come I will look back at it being a really crucial, wholly positive juncture in my career. ItÕs about more than just career development though. As part of the Scholarship I have met some of the loveliest and most impressive people. If they are up for it then IÕll be their friend for life.

Harry Dromey, Director of Brands & Campaigns, Global, 2015 Scholar / UK

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.

Claire Canty, Head of Innovation, Weetabix, 2016 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy offers an unprecedented opportunity to meet face to face with the movers and shakers in the business world and bounce back ideas. The Scholarship is unique in boosting ones understanding and perception of what it means to be a true business leader. I believe that this is the only program which offers a tailored approach to personal development; it shaped my perception, behaviour and attitude.

Masha Voskresenskaia, Associate Director, Coca-Cola European Partners, 2011 Scholar / UK

YouÕll hear a lot of people say The Marketing Academy is life-changing. You probably wonÕt believe it. Not really.

IÕve been keeping a daily journal for the last two years. I only realized how truly life-changing TMA had been for me when I decided to compare journal entries from before and after. Seeing the stark difference in how I spoke about relationships, went about leadership, thought about others, handled difficult situations, and most of all, how I viewed myself, moved me to tears.

Great leaders inspire us because they change things. They donÕt just make do. They donÕt just fit in. They donÕt just exist. They shape the world around us. There are many different styles of leadership that work, but I believe the one consistent characteristic all leaders have is an incredible sense of belief. In themselves, in their purpose, in their values. This is everything TMA helps you to nurture.

If you want to just make do. If you want to just fit in. If you want to just exist. The Marketing Academy is not for you.

Nic Yeeles, Co Founder & CEO of Peg, 2017 Scholar / UK

Pulling together over 80 marketing director mentors, numerous organisational facilities and 28 scholars has been an amazing achievement.
