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

The Marketing Academy has been transformational for me in a number of ways. I have developed my leadership behaviours and skills in a way that is authentic to me and my values – benefiting both me and the people around me. Through the program I have also developed an invaluable network that has helped me learn and grow. The Marketing Academy has stayed with me well beyond the year of the program and truly embodies what it means to be a lifelong learner & always work in progress!

Sarah Ellis, Managing Director of Gravity Road, 2011 Scholar / UK

I am now so much better equipped for my current job, let alone what comes next.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

The Marketing Academy is a truly life changing opportunity. The diversity of minds and quality of people is incredible and creates a one of a kind environment for learning, professionally and personally. The honesty and humility you meet through participants, coaches and mentors propel your development. I would love to re-name the academy, because it is really all about personal development- becoming the best possible leader you can be. Amazing. Be ready to go on a journey!

Silke Wexoe, Senior Strategy Lead, Bow & Arrow, 2017 Scholar / UK

My experience with the Marketing Academy has been nothing short of life changing. Through the process I have had endless exposure to world-class speakers, life-changing coaching and inspirational mentors. This is an amazing experience that equips marketers with the tools, expertise and support to be a future business leader.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

This is genuinely one of those ‘money can’t buy’, once in a lifetime opportunities.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

Given unexpected changes at work during the course of the program, I am particularly grateful for the development I received and the boost of good people in my network, I would not have otherwise met. The Marketing Academy, has provided me with tools and the confidence to show up authentically in everything I do.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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

These are 3 big benefits I’m taking away from the Marketing Academy. It’s:

1. Ignited my passion to do more: to be the best leader I can be in all aspects of my life, and encourage others to do the same

2. Elevated my perceptiveness: so I’m now less afraid to try new approaches to situations and challenges

3. And best of all, provided me with a whole new support network through my fellow scholars: whose energy is totally infectious, and with whom I’ve created a special bond, like that of a family

If you’re curious and motivated to charge yourself up and grow into the best person you can be, then you will absolutely love the journey the scholarship takes you on. It’s provided a different way of thinking that will stay with me, always.

Emi Laughton-Knott, Head of Acquisition Marketing, BT, 2017 Scholar / UK

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

It is for good reason that so many individuals, organisations and publications are prepared to give what they can to further the Academy. The mentors, the coaches, the founders, the Academy’s board directors – we all back this scheme because we can see that the benefits to our industry make it a no-brainer.

 

Mark Choueke, Co-Founder of CHOUEKE / UK

The Marketing Academy has inspired me to transform the way I think about the C-suite. It’s gone from a pipedream to an attainable goal!

Emily Byrne, General Manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, L’oreal, 2014 Scholar / UK

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.

Jack Lowman, Deputy Director of Marketing, The Princes Trust, 2014 Scholar / UK

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.

Sarah Tate, Global Sales Skills Developmen Lead at Google, 2011 Scholar / UK

A tribe of kinfolk bonded by a desire to change the world through marketing, the power of shared vulnerability, and the collective belief that by taking charge of our own histories & narratives we empower those we influence to do the same. (Quote by Derek Daniels – who says it better than I ever could!)

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

Inspirational; informative; and insightful – it’s not often you can say that about a development program.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

I applied looking for a network, some leadership frameworks and coaching and am leaving with SO much more – a set of lifelong friends, personal growth, clarity on my purpose and optimism for the future. Who knew so much was possible in just 7 months!

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

Three words describe this year for me – gain, grow and give. You’ll gain so much personally and professionally, more than you ever thought was possible. You’ll grow incredibly quickly as a result, stretching your capability beyond its limits. By the end, all you’ll want to do is give back to those around you, so they can benefit from at least a fraction of the experience you’ve had.

Cristina Loaiza, Global Head of Brand, graze.com, 2016 Scholar / UK

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!

Ben Tyson, Managing Director for Born Social, 2016 Scholar / UK

I have every confidence that this innovative initiative will make a real difference to the people involved.

Mike Hughes, Director General, ISBA / UK

I feel hugely excited and privileged to be part of the Marketing Academy. The combination of mentoring, coaching and training provides a unique opportunity, which is totally un-matched by any other program out there. I’m excited about shaping and supporting the Marketing Academy so future scholars have the same opportunities as us.
