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

The program has been exceptional – I’ve met peers, industry experts and specialists who have really challenged my thinking and inspired me to think about how to operate differently to drive change. Probably the best intervention I could have at this stage of my career!

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

From the point of deciding to apply for the Marketing Academy I have learnt more than I could have hoped for. Not only have I had the privilege of gaining invaluable mentoring, coaching and hearing from inspirational speakers, I have also learnt so much from my fellow scholars from different backgrounds. It’s been a unique and fantastically rewarding experience – you would have to be pretty mad to not want to be part of it!

David Son, 2011 Scholar / UK

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

A life changing, transformational, meaningful and FUN experience – can I do it all over again?!

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Marketing Academy Scholarship is like no other learning experience I’ve had before. Forget textbooks, assignments and exams – it’s all about learning from inspirational leaders, being more self-aware and ultimately becoming the leader you want to be whilst being yourself!

Sarah Cowl, Aviva, 2014 Scholar / UK

A wonderfully rich, varied and rewarding learning platform for every aspiring marketing leader. In isolation, each of the Marketing Academy faculties is worth the rigorous application process. In sum, they constitute a program that is unique in mission, broad in scope and blessed with industry mentors that would top any young marketers lunch wish-list. A ready-made marketing network for the next ten years of your life.

Adam Kennedy, Managing Director, Brisbane at Y&R ANZ, 2012 Scholar / UK

Transformational. Life-affirming. Career-defining. They’re pretty big promises for a leadership program. But, oh my, does The Marketing Academy deliver. Guided by inspiring industry leaders and mentors, a truly remarkable coach and the most amazing group of fellow scholars, I have learnt more than I thought possible about who I am, who I want to be, and what I can accomplish – both professionally and personally. To put it simply, the experience has changed my life for the better, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Jessica Haigh, Managing Director, Cedar Communications Hong Kong, 2017 Scholar / UK

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!

Rahul Patel, Chief Operating Officer, Cumii International, 2010 Alumni / UK

The best journey into ME ever. Get ready to rock, laugh, share, cry, discuss, create and challenge your inner you!

My selection in The Marketing Academy is truly a privilege. It has afforded my the opportunity to improve my self, the way I lead my team, access to the most brilliant minds in the business, and to develop a peer group who I know will remain my friends for life. The combination of training, mentoring, coaching and inspiration will be experiences that shape my career for years to come.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

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

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 – it will be the best thing you ever do for you, and everyone around you.

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

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.

Nick Payman, Guiness Marketing Manager, Europe at Diageo, 2011 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy was the second best thing that happened to me in 2018 (the first was getting married!). Joining Marketing Academy is like meeting a new work friend who is exceptionally well connected to executives, knows all the cool marketing people in your age group and just wants to get everyone together to have a party.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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.

Laila Takeh, Digital Strategy and Innovation Manager, Monitor Deloitte, 2013 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 Scholarship has transformed my way of thinking and helped my development to become a better leader. It has made me realize what my values are, which now recognized is benefiting both myself and those around me. I have met some really inspirational people and have received invaluable advice and mentoring which will help me on my journey through the rest of my career.

Charlotte McDonnell, TUI, 2014 Scholar / UK

The Fellowship is a fantastic experience, giving access to faculty materials, insider experience from senior mentors and a close peer network that you cannot access anywhere else. Amazing, humbling and great fun.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

I can safely say The Marketing Academy is one of the most fulfilling, valuable and enjoyable things I’ve been a part of – helping me develop professionally and personally, become a more purpose driven leader, and connect with some of the nicest, most ambitious folks in the marketing industry.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Scholarship is a fast-track for your marketing skills, personal development, career and life. It provides an incredible learning experience for any ambitious and curious marketer or entrepreneur. The combination of bootcamps to inspire you, mentoring to guide you and coaching to help you make sense of it all ties the whole year together. And on top of all of that, you become a part of a family that is growing across the world and that is always there to help you even when your year is up!
