Don't just take our word for it. This is what our Scholars in the UK and Australia have said about The Scholarship program...

The Marketing Academy’s mission is to turn the marketing talent of today into the leaders of tomorrow, and that’s exactly what it does. Whilst Ronseal in its mission, it leaves you with a purpose that is Adidas, a motivation that is Nike, and an ability to think like Apple. It’s the perfect program to build your own brand that will help you progress in both your professional and personal life.

Dan Russell, Deputy Head of Account Management,AMV BBDO, 2015 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is the most incredible learning opportunity. The combination of open, inspiring and generous mentors, coaching sessions, bootcamp talks and workshops and lunch and learns provide a brilliant opportunity to soak up knowledge from incredible leaders and think about how you can apply the ideas to your own life and work.

Emily Hare, Editor, The Honey Partnership, 2015 Scholar / UK

Talking to truly inspirational mentors on the program has transformed the way that I now think about and approach Marketing leadership.

This opportunity has allowed me to really take control of my career development.

The network of other scholars who are always there to share learnings and help when you need them have been so valuable.

James Butcher, Senior X-Box Console Category Manager, Microsoft, 2011 Scholar / UK

I feel truly overwhelmed to have been chosen to be part of such an exceptional scholarship. I cannot say thank you enough to Sherilyn and The Marketing Academy team, the mentors and, of course, my fellow scholars for making this entire experience phenomenal. I’ve been truly inspired by you all and I know that I’m already a better leader and, hopefully (!), a better person because of it.

Charlotte Greenaway, 2011 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is the single best leadership training you can receive, highlighting the massive difference between being a great marketer and a great marketing leader. It’s also broadened my horizon’s enormously by linking me up with a hugely talented group of likeminded marketers.

Nick Gilmer, Marketing Manager BBC1 and iPlayer, BBC, 2016 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy programme gave me the opportunity and chance to reflect intensely on my role as a leader at work, at home, in life. This reflection has brought a greater sense of self awareness and positivity to everything I touch. Eternally grateful.

Scholar alumni, 2016 / Australia

Graeme Smeaton, Founder & Creator Royal & Awesome, AFG Media Ltd, 2016 Scholar / UK

Before The Marketing Academy I thought I was great at my job and an asset to my company – I now have a broader approach to my role, team and career, a better understanding of my strengths, how to ignite the best in other people and a clearer sense of how my career can help me achieve the life I want to live.

Liz Le Breton, Head of Brand & Social, John Lewis, 2013 Scholar / UK

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

Scholar alumni, 2017 / Australia

The five days we were together as a group was so much more then I could ever have imagined, in my head I knew I would learn something, but I never thought that it would change my outlook so dramatically. I described it to someone over the weekend as a sliding door moment from which point things changed both personally and at work.

Scholar alumni, 2015 / Australia

The Marketing Academy has been a real accelerator to my development. The insight I have gained into myself, the marketing profession and leadership in addition to the fantastic connections I’ve made, has been a unique and priceless experience.

Helen Tupper, Commercial Marketing Director, Microsoft, 2012 Scholar / 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

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

I can’t say thank you to Sherilyn and the team adequately. The Marketing Academy has given me one of the best opportunities I am sure I will ever be given in my career. I feel privileged to have been selected amongst such a fantastic group of people and to have met the amazingly generous mentors and contributors along the way. Being part of the Academy has taught me so much about myself and how to perform at the best of my ability. I have thoroughly enjoyed what has been a hugely inspirational year of my life – next year will be nothing in comparison!

Anita Kinniburgh, International Sales and Marketing Manager at Fever-Tree, 2010 Alumni / UK

Boot Camp certainly enabled me to look at issues differently, understand how I communicate and I learned so much more about myself and my values that I thought I ever could. I have attended many ‘leadership’ courses throughout my career but this programme is outstanding!

Scholar alumni, 2015 / Australia

It’s hard to sum up into words just how incredibly life-changing The Marketing Academy is as a program.

Scholar alumni, 2017 / Australia

You’ll hear a lot of people say The Marketing Academy is life-changing. You probably won’t believe it. Not really.

I’ve been keeping a daily journal for the last two years. I only realized how truly life-changing TMA had been for me when I decided to compare journal entries from before and after. Seeing the stark difference in how I spoke about relationships, went about leadership, thought about others, handled difficult situations, and most of all, how I viewed myself, moved me to tears.

Great leaders inspire us because they change things. They don’t just make do. They don’t just fit in. They don’t just exist. They shape the world around us. There are many different styles of leadership that work, but I believe the one consistent characteristic all leaders have is an incredible sense of belief. In themselves, in their purpose, in their values. This is everything TMA helps you to nurture.

If you want to just make do. If you want to just fit in. If you want to just exist. The Marketing Academy is not for you.

Nic Yeeles, Co Founder & CEO of Peg, 2017 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

Becoming part of the Scholarship has changed my life. I have been given access to people I have only ever read about who happily share all their pearls of wisdom with me. I have been taught leadership skills that have truly changed my outlook not only in my working life but in my personal life too – skills which I am now using to become the person I want to be. I still every day think about how lucky I have been to be a part of this amazing opportunity and urge anyone considering being involved to do everything you can to be part of this.

Danielle Moss, 2010 Alumni / UK

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
