Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...
If marketing is about spotting opportunities and innovating into those opportunities with creative products that surprise and delight audiences – then the unique ‘product’ that is The Marketing Academy fits the bill.
The Marketing Academy is an unparalleled opportunity to expose yourself to leading marketers, innovators, leaders and like minded scholars. It’s impossible to not be inspired and motivated into becoming, not only a better leader and marketer, but a better person too. Grab this opportunity with both hands and hopefully you’ll get the chance to see that I’m not exaggerating…
A key element of nurturing talent is exposure; exposure to inspiring leaders and thinkers who, merely through spending a couple of hours with them, make a direct impact on your skill set and understanding of the industry you work in. There is nothing quite like the Marketing Academy for exposing talent to today’s leading marketers. It’s a personal development opportunity not to be missed!
The Marketing Academy has been a real accelerator to my development. The insight I have gained into myself, the marketing profession and leadership in addition to the fantastic connections I’ve made, has been a unique and priceless experience.
Talking to truly inspirational mentors on the program has transformed the way that I now think about and approach Marketing leadership.
This opportunity has allowed me to really take control of my career development.
The network of other scholars who are always there to share learnings and help when you need them have been so valuable.
Having lived and worked in Australia for 8 years, I’m incredibly excited about the prospect of The Marketing Academy arriving there. It has been a privilege for me to be involved in the Academy and I wouldn’t hesitate in nominating my peers and team members to join the program.
The Marketing Academy Fellowship has been a life-changing experience, both professionally and personally. It has been rich in variety, challenging and inspiring, and above all has offered the formation of a wonderful network of people sharing like-minded challenges.
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.
When I first heard that I had been chosen for a scholarship I don’t think I could have ever anticipated the opportunity it would give me. To have the chance of meeting some of the leading CEOs and CMOs in such a diverse range of industries as well as the learning I have taken from the boot camps and my coach have given me insights and learning far beyond what I could have ever expected.
A life changing, transformational, meaningful and FUN experience – can I do it all over again?!
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.
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.

You would be mad not to!
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-can’t-buy experience and I cannot recommend it highly enough – I feel very lucky to have had this experience!
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.
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.
The program is good, the professional development is great but there are no words to describe the new network you gain
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.
The Marketing Academy Scholarship is without doubt the ultimate accelerator for marketers. The access to knowledge, experience, networks and best practice is second to none. In the coming years I’m convinced I’ll look back and see the year with the Academy as a pivotal point in my career.
I clearly wanted to make it onto the Academy but I did not know too much about it. Having had just the first week – if I had known how good it is I would have been DESPERATE to make the final 30 and absolutely gutted if I would have missed out. It was such an amazing week and I took so much out of it, can’t thank you enough.
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.
