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

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

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.

Gregor Lawson, Founder of Morphsuits, 2011 Scholar / UK

Oh boy…where to start. This was life changing. People said this to me before I was accepted and I was skeptical. But it surpassed my expectations. Now it’s up to me to take the experience and the learnings and put them into play. It’s astounding that you can take 30 strangers and get them as close as I’ve become to some of these people. One of the guest speakers said this “We change people’s lives every day” but I truly believe it applies to what you’re doing at TMA: Thank you for what you’re doing and thank you for allowing me to experience this program.

2021 US Scholar / US

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

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

Incredibly insightful program with the perfect balance of industry thought leadership, professional coaching, and personal leadership development. Authentic by design, I’ve found the course had helped me lead through my day-to-day and set the foundation for how I frame up and achieve my future leadership goals. This is an invaluable leadership program for any marketer keen to accelerate their leadership potential.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

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

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

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

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.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

A set of experiences, encounters and people that have had an incredibly profound effect on my life. I will look back on this as one of those moments where things changed forever. Remember: the way of the river!

Adam Holmes, Partner of Brother Film Co, 2017 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 program will really open you up to your true potential, make it real and give you the tools you need to achieve it.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

This program has changed my life. I am forever grateful for such an inspiring, life changing, opening experience. I feel so much more empowered to be my fullest, authentic self, to influence and lead like never before. I know I was so privileged to be in such a cohort like this. Thank you to Vic and Sherilyn for your love, support, and pouring into us this year. Could not imagine a more impactful program to change lives and hopefully the world to a better place.

2021 US Scholar / US

These talented individuals will become the industry leaders of tomorrow.

 

Gail Gallie, Co-Founder, Project Everyone / UK

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

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

Having lived and worked in Australia for 8 years, I’m incredibly excited about the prospect of The Marketing Academy arriving there. It has been a privilege for me to be involved in the Academy and I wouldn’t hesitate in nominating my peers and team members to join the program.

Adam Johnson, Marketing Director of Global Radio, 2012 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

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

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

The Marketing Academy Scholarship is the best of it’s kind in the the UK, if not the world. A bold statement, I know, but here is why. The program has been carefully crafted and is made up of several elements including a life changing leadership course, days spent with industry leading organisations, 1:1 coaching as well as mentoring sessions with the most inspirational CMOs and CEOs in business. As if this wasn’t enough, I have built a peer network that is filled with some of the most incredible people I could have hoped to meet!

Rachel Compton, Head of Commercial Marketing, ITV, 2014 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.
