The Marketing Academy 2017 Mentor Award Winners

“A truly great Mentor is hard to find, difficult to part with and impossible to forget’’

The Marketing Academy is a staunch advocate of the power of mentoring. So much so that mentoring has formed a core part of their coveted Scholarship Programme for the last 8 years. The 9 month development programme for emerging talent attracts hundreds of the industry’s highest profile CEO’s and CMO’s who each gift their time to mentor the Academys Scholars.

For the 8th year running the graduating class of 30 Scholars have each selected just one person from all the inspirational leaders they’ve met during the 2017 programme to receive a ‘Mentor Award’, a small way of appreciating the individual who’s advice or input made an extra special impact. It’s one of the only industry awards that recognises leaders on a personal level rather than for the job they hold.

Founder & CEO of The Marketing Academy Sherilyn Shackell said ‘Mentoring has always been a key pillar of our programmes. Our Mentors and speakers gift their time, freely sharing their wisdom and experience to help us nurture and develop our Scholars. We are privileged to have so many of the Uk’s greatest marketers and leaders advise, encourage and inspire our Scholars and we created these Awards as a way to celebrate these extraordinary people’.

The Marketing Academy’s 2017 graduating Scholars announced these special accolades during their graduation event at CitizenM Hotel on 8th February at Trinity Square.
