What People Say about The Marketing Academy...
Our UK programmes are 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...
10, 15 or 20 years from now, the scholarship at Marketing Academy will be seen as the defining point of my career. The lessons weÕre learning from the best minds in business may not immediately effect our actions today but it will empower us to be better leaders of tomorrow.
For anyone serious about demonstrating the strategic leadership and contribution that marketers can make, not just in their organisations but in the industry and society more widely, then unashamedly do everything you can to earn a place in The Marketing Academy. The experience of the bootcamp, mentoring and coaching is truly unique and impossible to put a price on.
Not only am I developing my industry knowledge and building a wider network of peers, I am learning the vital skills to progress from ÔmanagerÕ to ÔleaderÕ. ItÕs 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 Ôpay it forwardsÕ 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.
It has been a huge privilege to be part of the 2017 TMA scholarship progam.
The Marketing Academy has inspired me to transform the way I think about the C-suite. ItÕs gone from a pipedream to an attainable goal!
I’ve been on many courses, to many lectures, and read many books, but nothing has had the transformation impact on my leadership potential, style, and performance, that The Marketing Academy has. It is simply the definitive scheme for future marketing and business leaders.
Clarity, confidence and a fighting spirit – the headline I would put against the Marketing Academy Scholarship.
You may go in being clear on what you want to achieve but be prepared to unpack everything you thought you knew, be prepared to open your mind and be inspired by both incredible speakers & your fellow Scholars, be prepared to learn skills & techniques to grow your capability as a leader and come out the other side with real clarity on what really gets you out of bed in the morning. YouÕll capture the confidence to carve out the career you want, and release the self-belief to put the right things in place to achieve it.
With the knowledge that you then have 29 other people rooting for you, not to mention the mentors, coach, speakers, alumni and Marketing Academy team you meet along the way, your fighting spirit will come to the fore to make both you and those around you true leaders of change.
An honour to be part of TMA. Amazing cohort of superstars and a brilliant line up of industry leading speakers. A very well structured program that helps take you to the next level. I canÕt recommend it highly enough.
The Marketing Academy has been a truly life changing, and life affirming experience. It has totally changed the way in which I view the opportunities that are presented to me, how I deal with challenges and conflict, and the role that I play as both a colleague and a leader in my organisation. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Apply! Apply!
Without doubt, the most valuable thing that I will take away from this experience is the network. Parking everything else; all the faculties, the mentoring sessions, the personal development Ð meeting 27 other super-talented marketers who are around the same age and at roughly the same point in their careers is to me, one of the best attributes of the entire scholarship.
The Marketing Academy has given me access to a wide range of people who have candidly shared their knowledge and experiences with me. Understanding their different approaches and views has helped me better shape my objectives, given me tools to improve my leadership style, and made me realize the true worth of building my own brand.
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.
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.
There’s nothing quite like The Marketing Academy, the talent and diversity of the people you meet equals pure inspiration and learning at its best.
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.
The Marketing Academy is an exciting and long needed investment to increase the resource pool of new Marketeers.
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.
IÕm incredibly proud to be involved with the Scholarship Program. It brings talented individuals together in a powerful blend of training, mentoring and coaching which is completely free of charge. The benefits to mentors and mentees alike are mutually rewarding. The program has status, momentum and real influence now.
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!
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.
