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

Pulling together over 80 marketing director mentors, numerous organisational facilities and 28 scholars has been an amazing achievement.

Sally Cowdry, Marketing Director Camelot UK Lotteries Ltd

Marketing Academy Board Member / UK

I didn’t have a peer network in New York until the Marketing Academy. It is testament to the selection process that everyone was so different and so brilliant in equal measure. Taking the time to think about who we want to be and how has been instrumental to how I’ve shown up at work and in life for the last six months. The Marketing Academy teaches that self improvement isn’t self indulgent. An important lesson when dealing with the pressure and pace of marketing today.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Marketing Academy had a profound impact on my life – enhancing both personal and professional relationships – and continues to do so through friends, peers and networks which extend way beyond the one year Scholarship.

Ry Morgan, Co-Founder & CPO, Unmind, 2013 Scholar / UK

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.

Matt Hart, Founder, BIF / UK

Amazing experience, life changing. Thank you for making this happen. We hope we were worth it.

The Marketing Academy Fellowship: insightful, inspirational, empowering and connecting, it’s the best professional and personal development I have done in years!

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

The Marketing Academy Scholarship Program is not only an unrivalled combination of inspiration and education from industry leaders, marketing moguls and professional coaches, it’s a unique opportunity to stand still and reflect on your personal motivations, aspirations and purpose. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll emerge with the tangible skills, tools and beliefs to progress your professional and personal life.

Philip Raperport, Head of Drama Franchise Marketing, BBC, 2014 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy has given me access to a wide range of people who have candidly shared their knowledge and experiences with me. Understanding their different approaches and views has helped me better shape my objectives, given me tools to improve my leadership style, and made me realize the true worth of building my own brand.

Alfredo Garicoche, 2011 Scholar / UK

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

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

Being a part of the Marketing Academy has been an absolute privilege. The yearlong course has really helped to understand where I would like to aim toward in my career and also made me realize what is important in both my personal and professional life. From CEOs of Blue Chip companies to mentors and personal development coaches; the people I have had the pleasure of meeting along the way have been absolutely outstanding. It has been a whirlwind of a year and really challenging at times but it is rare you get to make as many real friends in such a short space of time. If you have the opportunity to do the same, grab it with both hands.

Jack Foley, Senior Brand Manager, KFC, 2015 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is an exciting and long needed investment to increase the resource pool of new Marketeers.

 

Steve Back, Marketing Academy Board Member / UK

The program is good, the professional development is great but there are no words to describe the new network you gain

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

From my first mentor walking into our meeting with Kelly Brook on the roof of Soho house, to a CEO helping me craft my 100 day plan to land a promotion, the Marketing Academy has given me amazing access to some incredible people and some unforgettable moments.

Phil Mitchelson, Director of Growth, Catena Media, 2011 Scholar / UK

Being a part of the Marketing Academy is like winning the National Lottery when it’s a double rollover. It has changed my life forever in the most positive way and allows me to share great things with people around me.

Bev Lam, 2010 Alumni / UK

The Marketing Academy has made me believe in myself and my potential as a leader in a way I’d never fully felt, and backing it up with an MBA-level network of peers and C-suite mentors who I feel comfortable calling on for virtually anything to support my continued growth.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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.

Amanda Mackenzie, CMO of Aviva / UK

The Marketing Academy is not only career-defining, it’s life-changing. I have learned more than I could have possibly imagined from the inspirational speakers, mentors, my coach and of course the other brilliant scholars. I think everyone takes something different out of the program depending on their own vision and purpose and development areas, but for me the coaching on taking control of your own outcomes, becoming a key person of influence, and “daring to begin before you are ready” has had the most impact.

Sara McCraight, Head of Marketing, Coco di Mama, 2015 Scholar / UK

The Fellowship is a great way for CMOs to achieve a gear-change in their development. What is striking is the similarity of the challenges that everyone across the cohort is facing in defining and achieving their next chapter, whether that be to secure a CEO next or in moving upwards in general. It is hard to imagine a year packed with more opportunities and stimulus to deepen understanding of what being CEO entails, and to figure out the journey towards that.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA
