Scholar alumni, 2017 / Australia

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 IÕm convinced IÕll 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

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.

James Whatley, Planning Partner at Ogilvy UK, 2010 Alumni / 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

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.

Matt Campbell, Executive Creative Director, MATTA, 2014 Scholar / 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 Marketing Academy is an incredible opportunity for you and the organisation that you represent. YouÕll get inspiration and challenge in equal measure from an amazing array of coaches, mentors, industry experts, inspirational leaders and your awesome fellow scholars. All of this will make you clearer on what you want and infinity more capable of achieving it. YouÕll learn techniques and frameworks that can add instant value to your business and youÕll form relationships and a way of thinking that will stay with you throughout your life.

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

I truly believe The Marketing Academy to be the most inspiring, creative and effective professional development program in the industry – if not the world. It is phenomenal that, with the support of our partners, it can be offered to scholars for free – when the coaching, network, learning opportunities and development skills you get match that of an MBA. I feel incredibly privileged to have been part of the inaugural year and it would be no exaggeration to say that I draw on my learnings from that year every day. There are few experiences so genuinely guaranteed to change your life, and I thank everyone involved for making that happen for me. Support it, apply for it, or nominate someone else, but find a way to get involved. I promise that you will reap the rewards.

Lucie Bartlett, 2010 Scholar / UK

These talented individuals will become the industry leaders of tomorrow.

 

Gail Gallie, Co-Founder, Project Everyone / UK

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.

Scholar alumni, 2017 / Australia

Being a part of the Marketing Academy has been an absolute privilege. The yearlong course has really helped to understand where I would like to aim toward in my career and also made me realize what is important in both my personal and professional life. From CEOs of Blue Chip companies to mentors and personal development coaches; the people I have had the pleasure of meeting along the way have been absolutely outstanding. It has been a whirlwind of a year and really challenging at times but it is rare you get to make as many real friends in such a short space of time. If you have the opportunity to do the same, grab it with both hands.

Jack Foley, Senior Brand Manager, KFC, 2015 Scholar / UK

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 IÕve made, has been a unique and priceless experience.

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

The Scholarship is a fast-track for your marketing skills, personal development, career and life. It provides an incredible learning experience for any ambitious and curious marketer or entrepreneur. The combination of bootcamps to inspire you, mentoring to guide you and coaching to help you make sense of it all ties the whole year together. And on top of all of that, you become a part of a family that is growing across the world and that is always there to help you even when your year is up!

Ben Tyson, Managing Director for Born Social, 2016 Scholar / UK

I support the Marketing Academy as it is simply irresistible. You get to spend time and help brilliant hand-picked scholars and they leave you excited and thrilled for the future of the industry.

Amanda Mackenzie, CMO of Aviva / UK

When I look back on my career on the night of my retirement, I’m fairly certain I’ll conclude my year on The Marketing Academy was the pivotal point in transforming my journey, and ultimately the person I’ve gone on to become.

Ross Farquhar, Managing Partner at Grey London, 2010 Scholar / UK

When I applied for The Marketing Academy, I didn’t really know too much about it, so whilst I really wanted to get onto the program I wasn’t desperate.

Aus Leaders Programme Delegate 2015 / Australia

The Marketing Academy has been transformational for me in a number of ways. I have developed my leadership behaviours and skills in a way that is authentic to me and my values – benefiting both me and the people around me. Through the program I have also developed an invaluable network that has helped me learn and grow. The Marketing Academy has stayed with me well beyond the year of the program and truly embodies what it means to be a lifelong learner & always work in progress!

Sarah Ellis, Managing Director of Gravity Road, 2011 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

Phenomenal experience that has changed the way I look at not only my professional world, but my entire world.

Scholar alumni, 2016 / Australia

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.

Sophie Wheater, Head of Brand and Communications at Tesco Mobile, 2013 Scholar / UK
