Join us for The Marketing Academy Annual Showcase - 9th May 2017

Hear what the Class of 2016 have learnt and celebrate their graduation while meeting the new Class of 2017.

What if you could walk into a room and in 1 hour, absorb the combined wisdom of 100 people? How might you see your world, your career, your choices differently when you walk out of that room?

The ‘100 people’ are legends from across the marketing, media and communications industry's and the ‘room’ is the iconic BFI Southbank.

And who are we? We’re The Marketing Academy 2016 Scholars; 30 future leaders who’ve spent the last year on a brain-swirling journey of conversations, connections and crap coffee, discovering that the ingredients of extraordinary leadership were staring us in the face all along.

We’ll share why childlike daring is the way forward, what a West End star told us about upgrading our internal software and why you should spend less time on success and more on significance.  

It’s free, there’ll be booze and you might even win a prize or two.

Money back guarantee to anyone who leaves uninspired.

After the showcase we'll graduate the Class of 2016 and welcome the new 2017 cohort. We'll also celebrate the Mentor Awards, thanking those business leaders that have nurtured and developed our talent. And to wrap up there'll be beer and cocktails.

Don't miss out. Book quickly to avoid disappointment - click here!
