What People Say about The Marketing Academy...

Our US Scholarship program is sponsored by:

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 has been quite simply the most career-defining programme that I have ever been on. As well as providing access and insights from some amazing leaders across industries, the course also forces you to examine your own beliefs, motivations and ways of working. It is almost impossible not to come out the other side with a clearer sense of purpose, not only about your work but about your whole life.

Paul Risdale, Controller of Marketing and Media, ITV, 2011 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is an incredible program run by dedicated, passionate people. It doesn’t just help you realize your potential. It helps you re-imagine the limit of your potential.

Sarah Tate, Global Sales Skills Developmen Lead, Google, 2011 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 has far exceeded my expectations. I have met some really inspirational and interesting senior Marketing leaders who have been both generous and honest in sharing their advice and experiences- I have already developed an enviable list of contacts and that will only expand by the end of the academy!

If I was to give one piece of advice to any talented, ambitious Marketeer it would be to do everything you can to try and secure a place on the Marketing Academy- it’s an experience that will benefit you for years to come.

I have been involved in lots of training and development in the past but nothing comes close to the Marketing Academy. The unique combination of coaching, leadership training, mentoring, faculty days and working with a charity delivers a fantastic combination of experiences and learning. In summary it’s just great!

Sarah Ellis, Managing Director of Gravity Road, 2011 Scholar / UK

As dramatic as it sounds, it is a life changing program. Be accepting to change as a human being, a leader, a marketer and a change maker – because that will happen. Without a doubt, this is the best education or self-improvement experience I’ve done, and the one I’ve had the most tangible results and improvements from. Now just don’t let the cultish language of the Alumni scare you- it just really is that good and we all believe in it that much.

Scholar alumni, 2017 / Australia

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

Scholar alumni, 2017 / Australia

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

I implore all ambitious marketeers to apply for The Marketing Academy. It’s an unimaginably rewarding experience. I’ll come out the other end of the course a different, more resilient, more inspired & more inspiring leader. I’ll also, I believe, be a better friend and good deal happier. 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

Haseeb Rahman, Business Unit Head, Nestle, 2012 Scholar / UK

The Scholarship has been an amazing opportunity for me. At the beginning it was difficult to get my head around all the advice I was given, however 6 months down the line the experience has helped me not only understand where I want to go in my career, but also helped me action them in my current role.

Alina Waite, Media Director, UM Worldwide, 2011 Scholar / UK

A wonderfully rich, varied and rewarding learning platform for every aspiring marketing leader. In isolation, each of the Marketing Academy faculties is worth the rigorous application process. In sum, they constitute a program that is unique in mission, broad in scope and blessed with industry mentors that would top any young marketers lunch wish-list. A ready-made marketing network for the next ten years of your life.

Adam Kennedy, Managing Director, Brisbane at Y&R ANZ, 2012 Scholar / UK

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.

Scholar alumni, 2015 / Australia

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

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

They say there is no limit to the brain’s desire to learn. The learnings we have gathered through this incredible journey has certainly tested that assumption!

This Scholarship has made me feel younger. The future is clearer and the path to get there has more helping hands than ever!

Rahul Patel, Chief Operating Officer, Cumii International, 2010 Alumni / UK

The Marketing Academy is a truly life changing opportunity. The diversity of minds and quality of people is incredible and creates a one of a kind environment for learning, professionally and personally. The honesty and humility you meet through participants, coaches and mentors propel your development. I would love to re-name the academy, because it is really all about personal development- becoming the best possible leader you can be. Amazing. Be ready to go on a journey!

Silke Wexoe, Senior Strategy Lead, Bow & Arrow, 2017 Scholar / UK

The Scholarship is not just career changing, it’s life changing. It’s not comparable to any other program out there; it’s proper ‘money can’t buy’ stuff. If there’s even a teeny chance you can get a place, then apply, apply, apply.
