Don't just take our word for it. This is what our Scholars around the world have said about The Scholarship program...

A rare opportunity to invest time in your career growth. TMA allows you the time and resources to reflect, learn and grow as a leader while making enduring connections with peers and leaders within the US marketing landscape.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Marketing Academy, without wanting to be a cliche, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s not just about networking and mentoring, it’s about building relationships with people who will help you become a strong leader and a technically excellent marketer.

Ross Farquhar, Managing Partner at Grey London, 2010 Alumni / 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

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

Gaining a place on The Marketing Academy Scholarship program has been the single most incredible thing I have ever achieved in my career. Not only has it transformed the way I think about marketing, it has also made me a better leader both at work and at home. Gaining access and spending time with the most incredible array of coaches, mentors, speakers and like minded individuals has been truly inspirational and life changing. I have also made a network of lifelong friends that I have no doubt will play a significant role in my career and personal life for many years to come.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

It has been a huge privilege to be part of the 2017 TMA scholarship progam.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

Bootcamp had the best assembly of speakers I’ve ever experienced.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

The Marketing Academy offers professional development like no other. I feel like it has elevated my thinking to another level and that in years to come I will look back at it being a really crucial, wholly positive juncture in my career. It’s about more than just career development though. As part of the Scholarship I have met some of the loveliest and most impressive people. If they are up for it then I’ll be their friend for life.

Harry Dromey, Director of Brands & Campaigns, Global, 2015 Scholar / UK

I feel like all of my Christmases have come at once. You get out of life what you put in. Put all your effort into trying to get on the next intake of scholars, and you will get a life changing experience out.

This isn’t just any marketing course, this is a marketing course for the leaders of tomorrow.

Time taken to create your “Showcase Me” presentation = 10 hours, Intensive interviews = 2 hours, Being a scholar of the academy = Priceless.

6 months in, I am still pinching myself to see if I am dreaming!

Vicki McIvor, Group Strategy Manager, International Airlines Group, 2010 Alumni / UK

The first thing I was delighted by, when day one of The Marketing Academy commenced, was the extremely high calibre of speakers for the bootcamp. This was quickly followed by the realisation that the other 29 Scholars were some of the most talented, ambitious and nice yet ego-less peers that I had met in our industry. The nine-month program has given me unparalleled access to and inspiration from the top talent of our industry, from TMA scholars and speakers, to mentors and coaches. The scholars’ personal and professional growth has been significant, with many outcomes shared at our final bootcamp, including promotions, payrises, increased gravitas, better industry profiles and personal milestones reached. I can’t recommend this program highly enough, it lifts the emotional intelligence and cohesiveness of the whole industry.

Scholar Alumni, 2016 / Australia

You will make lifelong friends with a strong cohort of your peers who will grow alongside of you.

Scholar Alumni, 2016 / Australia

It is a real privilege to have been a Marketing Academy Scholar. It is such a special experience through which I’ve had the chance to meet, learn and be inspired by so many wonderful people.

Emma Brooker, Advertising Producer at Apple, 2013 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is an incredibly unique opportunity that will give see you grow and develop more as a person than you could ever imagine. There’s nothing else that exists that sees you get such a high calibre leadership training, mentoring from highly revered figures in the industry and the chance to meet, and befriend, 29 utterly fantastic people. The simplest way to sum it up would be “career rocket fuel”. I couldn’t encourage anyone enough who is ambitious, and hungry to learn, to apply.

Jonny Miles-Prouten, 2011 Scholar / 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 cliche “a life changing opportunity” is overused and often with little authenticity in business. Not when it comes to The Marketing Academy which exceeds the statement by some mileage. Be a part of it or you’ll never see just how amazing you can be.

Michelle Keaney, Chief Imaginer at Inventing Futures, 2010 Scholar / UK

The ticket to a better you and relationships that will endure a lifetime.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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 program was the ultimate elixir – waking me up from career-malaise and time fatigue, allowing me to become deeply aware of who I am at my core, and how I want to show up in the world.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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

Life changing. I was able to find my why and purpose as to why I exist in this ever so complex world!
