What People Say about The Marketing Academy...
The Marketing Academy US is sponsored by:
Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...
Keep focusing on leadership and us as people to live life with purposes and intention building careers that flourish as part of our ecosystem of being holistic, centred, and people with intent and care. This was the best part of the program – marketing subjects were great and interesting but the care and craft to content and the curation of the scholars to focus on us as people, leaders was second to none.
It’s so much more than marketing. ‘Leadership Academy for Life where you make Lifelong Friends’ is probably more like it, although admittedly not as catchy.
I am deeply grateful for this scholarship program experience!! The fantastic learnings, mentors, and coaches. I feel so blessed to be a part of this cohort and the friendship that made!! This program has been pivotal in my life. As I take some next big steps in my career, everything this program has given me, my personal reflections, and the support of the cohort is so powerful!
An honour to be part of TMA. Amazing cohort of superstars and a brilliant line up of industry leading speakers. A very well structured program that helps take you to the next level. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
It’s hard work, great fun and now it’s up to us Alumni to make history. Excellent program – hope we can live up to it!
The Marketing Academy gave me the tools, inspiration, and space to develop my personal views on leadership, at a critical time in my career and life.
The Marketing Academy is awesome. Initially just being accepted on the course is a wonderful acknowledgement of your abilities and your potential – and then meeting your incredible fellow scholars is both humbling and inspiring as you realize you are considered as part of that peer group. The training, coaching and mentoring you receive is extraordinary, even more so when you consider that all of those people are giving their time for free. I’ve also found working with my charity extremely rewarding as it’s helped me realise quite how valuable my expertise can be! In fact, I am learning more about myself than I thought possible and I am sure that, in years to come, I will look back on the Marketing Academy as a significant turning point in my career.
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.
Normally when you go to a conference you have 1 or 2 speakers that are brilliant, but I found every single one provided some piece of brilliance for me to take away.
A must for CMOs with eyes on a general management role.
The Marketing Academy Fellowship: insightful, inspirational, empowering and connecting, it’s the best professional and personal development I have done in years!
The Scholarship is not just career changing, it’s life changing. It’s not comparable to any other program out there; it’s proper ‘money can’t buy’ stuff. If there’s even a teeny chance you can get a place, then apply, apply, apply.
The Marketing Academy has been a gift. The people I’ve met, the insights I’ve gleaned and the leaps I’ve made personally and professionally have made a deep impact on my life. Grateful doesn’t begin to describe the way I feel about every single element of the experience.
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.
I’ve been through a lot of developmental experiences and this was by far the best.
I truly believe The Marketing Academy to be the most inspiring, creative and effective professional development program in the industry – if not the world. It is phenomenal that, with the support of our partners, it can be offered to scholars for free – when the coaching, network, learning opportunities and development skills you get match that of an MBA. I feel incredibly privileged to have been part of the inaugural year and it would be no exaggeration to say that I draw on my learnings from that year every day. There are few experiences so genuinely guaranteed to change your life, and I thank everyone involved for making that happen for me. Support it, apply for it, or nominate someone else, but find a way to get involved. I promise that you will reap the rewards.
The Scholarship has been an amazing opportunity for me. At the beginning it was difficult to get my head around all the advice I was given, however 6 months down the line the experience has helped me not only understand where I want to go in my career, but also helped me action them in my current role.
Whether it in boot camps, lunch and learns or mentoring sessions the best of the best from the marketing industry are putting their experiences in front of you, sharing their triumphs and failures and motivating you with ideas on how you can become a better marketer. Realistic, Dynamic, Inspiring – The Marketing Academy Scholarship is booster for accelerating your speed/quality of learning and marketing knowledge
This program was life changing! When I decided to apply to The Marketing Academy Scholarship, I knew I needed to make some changes in my life and career, but honestly didn’t know where to start. Who would have thought that after leaving the final boot camp that I’d have a clearly- articulated life purpose, and true career road map, and 29 colleagues I now consider family. I’ve never grown so close to a group of strangers so quickly. I well up with joy every time I think about my cohort, the TMA staff, and what I’ve gained.
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.
