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 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

Normally when you go to a conference you have 1 or 2 speakers that are brilliant, but I found every single one provided some piece of brilliance for me to take away.

The Marketing Academy Scholarship Program is the start of an amazing journey that has helped me realize the leader I already was. I’m now able to articulate my passion, have a clear purpose and have a network of amazing people who have all been on this journey together. It’s helped me realize what my potential can be whilst unleashing a passion to inspire and influence people in my life to think about things differently and be the change they want to see.

Scholar alumni, 2017 / Australia

I clearly wanted to make it onto the Academy but I did not know too much about it. Having had just the first week – if I had known how good it is I would have been DESPERATE to make the final 30 and absolutely gutted if I would have missed out. It was such an amazing week and I took so much out of it, can’t thank you enough.

I implore all ambitious marketeers to apply for The Marketing Academy. It’s an unimaginably rewarding experience.

The course is about so much more than core marketing skills. The experience is so much more than the services offered – I’ve had access to phenomenal mentoring, but also met twenty nine new best friends. Apply now. Trust me!

Lottie Unwin, Head of Marketing, Propercorn, 2017 Scholar / UK

Not only am I developing my industry knowledge and building a wider network of peers, I am learning the vital skills to progress from ‘manager’ to ‘leader’. It’s transformed my way of thinking and introduced me to some of the most remarkable people in the industry, both my fellow scholars and the mentors and coaches. Central to the academy ethos is ‘pay it forwards’ meaning that we should share and teach as much as we can. The Scholarship is enabling me to share resources with my peers both in the UK and in Canada and the US and I have no doubt I am learning lifelong skills.

Gemma Holmes, Head of Marketing Homesense UK, TK Maxx Group, 2015 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

Without actually getting into the specific bootcamp content, it was actually the process of getting everybody to bring themselves, take off their masks, and expose their true self that really made the entire week so powerful. And likewise the giving thanks at the end of the program. It really brought the group together on a very, very deep personal level, and made us bond very quickly. As a key takeout for me, I feel that as a result of this, the depth of the experience, and the strength of the relationships that come out of it are going to be really powerful and lasting.

Scholar alumni, 2015 / Australia

From the point of deciding to apply for the Marketing Academy I have learnt more than I could have hoped for. Not only have I had the privilege of gaining invaluable mentoring, coaching and hearing from inspirational speakers, I have also learnt so much from my fellow scholars from different backgrounds. It’s been a unique and fantastically rewarding experience – you would have to be pretty mad to not want to be part of it!

David Son, 2011 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

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 is awesome. Initially just being accepted on the course is a wonderful acknowledgement of your abilities and your potential – and then meeting your incredible fellow scholars is both humbling and inspiring as you realize you are considered as part of that peer group. The training, coaching and mentoring you receive is extraordinary, even more so when you consider that all of those people are giving their time for free. I’ve also found working with my charity extremely rewarding as it’s helped me realise quite how valuable my expertise can be! In fact, I am learning more about myself than I thought possible and I am sure that, in years to come, I will look back on the Marketing Academy as a significant turning point in my career.
