What People Say about The Marketing Academy...

Our Australia Scholarship programme 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...

If marketing is about spotting opportunities and innovating into those opportunities with creative products that surprise and delight audiences – then the unique ‘product’ that is The Marketing Academy fits the bill.

Matt Hart, Founder, BIF / UK

You only need to look at the names of the mentors and board members involved in the Marketing Academy to see that this is a programme like no other in the industry. A genuinely step changing programme and a unique programme of learning. And critically, because it’s free, it’s open to all- the only thing you need to bring is ability. A programme that has a big role to play in the Marketing industry for many years to come.

Bryn Snelson, 2011 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 – 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

Transformational. Life-affirming. Career-defining. They’re pretty big promises for a leadership program. But, oh my, does The Marketing Academy deliver. Guided by inspiring industry leaders and mentors, a truly remarkable coach and the most amazing group of fellow scholars, I have learnt more than I thought possible about who I am, who I want to be, and what I can accomplish – both professionally and personally. To put it simply, the experience has changed my life for the better, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Jessica Haigh, Managing Director, Cedar Communications Hong Kong, 2017 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy: An intense year of learning, self reflection, inspiration and friendship that is truly character defining. Allowing young talent access to a toolkit of skills that will equip them and those around them to reach their greatest potential.

A journey that will truly have a positive impact on your life. In an environment with like minded peers, passionate in achieving their potential and a support network that truly inspire and believe in you to make it happen!

Adam Henderson, 2011 Scholar / UK

Being a part of the Marketing Academy is like winning the National Lottery when it’s a double rollover. It has changed my life forever in the most positive way and allows me to share great things with people around me.

Bev Lam, 2010 Alumni / UK

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 is an exciting and long needed investment to increase the resource pool of new Marketeers.

 

Steve Back, Marketing Academy Board Member / UK

The Scholarship has transformed my way of thinking and helped my development to become a better leader. It has made me realize what my values are, which now recognized is benefiting both myself and those around me. I have met some really inspirational people and have received invaluable advice and mentoring which will help me on my journey through the rest of my career.

Charlotte McDonnell, TUI, 2014 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy is the most life changing programme I’ve ever been on – imagine feeling like for the first time ever you know what your purpose is. Imagine understanding for the first time too how to go about getting that career you really want. Imagine feeling more inspired and empowered than ever before by incredible industry leaders from across the marketing industry. Finally, imagine having the opportunity to grow a brand new network of talented future leaders and friends. The Marketing Academy has been an indescribable experience so far – the journey I have been on has been almost magical and I can’t thank the Academy, mentors, coaches and speakers enough for helping to shape the new professional I have become.

Sharrie Anderson, Senior Employee Engagement Manager, Burberry, 2016 Scholar / UK

A real luxury to have the opportunity to step out of the day to day job to meet some inspirational people and learn how to hone my personal leadership style.

Jennifer Walker, Senior Brand Manager Strategy at Lloyds Banking Group, 2012 Scholar / 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

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.

Being in the Marketing Academy Scholarship programme is the one of the best things have happened in my life. The Marketing Academy is not just about your career development, but your life: it is a once-in-life opportunity to help you refine yourself, find your goals, discover what matters the most to you, and develop leadership in your own style.

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 programme to build your own brand that will help you progress in both your professional and personal life.

I feel so fortunate having received this opportunity and living the experience every day, and once it is all over, I will greatly miss it, but also recognize my responsibility to make the most of it in my life and career going forward!
