Here’s what they say about The Marketing Academy Scholarship

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. You’ll 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.

Clare Beaumont-Adam, Co Owner, Independents United (IU), 2017 Scholar

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.

Emi Laughton-Knott, Head of Acquisition Marketing, BT, 2017 Scholar

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, Strategy Lead at Bow & Arrow, 2017 Scholar

You’ll hear a lot of people say The Marketing Academy is life-changing. You probably won’t believe it. Not really.

I’ve been keeping a daily journal for the last two years. I only realised how truly life-changing TMA had been for me when I decided to compare journal entries from before and after. Seeing the stark difference in how I spoke about relationships, went about leadership, thought about others, handled difficult situations, and most of all, how I viewed myself, moved me to tears.

Great leaders inspire us because they change things. They don’t just make do. They don’t just fit in. They don’t just exist. They shape the world around us. There are many different styles of leadership that work, but I believe the one consistent characteristic all leaders have is an incredible sense of belief. In themselves, in their purpose, in their values. This is everything TMA helps you to nurture.

If you want to just make do. If you want to just fit in. If you want to just exist. The Marketing Academy is not for you.

Nic Yeeles, Co Founder & CEO of Peg, 2017 Scholar

Transformational. Life-affirming. Career-defining. They're pretty big promises for a leadership programme. 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, Business Director of Cedar Communications, 2017 Scholar

A set of experiences, encounters and people that have had an incredibly profound effect on my life. I will look back on this as “one of those moments” where things changed forever. Remember: the way of the river!

Adam Holmes, Partner of Brother Film Co, 2017 Scholar

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 for Propercorn, 2017 Scholar

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, Marketing Manager for Mace, 2016 Scholar

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.

Nick Gilmer, Marketing Manager Broadcast Marketing for ITV plc, 2016 Scholar

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!

Jessica Crawford, Media Director of PHD, 2016 Scholar

The Marketing Academy is an incredible opportunity for you and the organisation that you represent. You’ll 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. You’ll learn techniques and frameworks that can add instant value to your business and you’ll form relationships and a way of thinking that will stay with you throughout your life.

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

Just Do It! The Marketing Academy is the most special learning experience there is – imagine combining the most amazing bunch of people, learning from the best in the business & having permission to take the time to really craft and think about what matters most to become the best version of yourself - both professionally and personally. You will leave inspired with a clear purpose and clarity on who you are, the life you want and the steps to help you become the best leader you can be. You’ll challenge yourself in a way you have never done before, ask yourself questions you have never thought about and never look at things in the same way again – I cannot recommend it highly enough, it’s the experience of a lifetime.

Kate Fletcher, Marketing Manager Captain Morgan for DIAGEO, 2016 Scholar

Three words describe this year for me – gain, grow and give. You’ll gain so much personally and professionally, more than you ever thought was possible. You’ll grow incredibly quickly as a result, stretching your capability beyond its limits. By the end, all you’ll want to do is give back to those around you, so they can benefit from at least a fraction of the experience you’ve had.

Cristina Loaiza, Marketing Propositions Manager for Sainsbury's Supermarkets Ltd, 2016 Scholar

The Marketing Academy has quite simply changed my life. It has completely changed the way that I think, not only as a marketing leader but as an individual. It has taught me so much about who I am, and helped me see the possibilities of what I can achieve. I feel hugely privileged to have met such an incredible group of scholars, mentors, coaches & industry leaders that have inspired me more than I ever thought possible. I know that I will look back in 10 years and see the Marketing Academy as the single biggest turning point in my life & career, and I would urge anyone to take the opportunity – it will be the best thing you ever do for you, and everyone around you.

Claire Canty, National Account Manager for Weetabix, 2016 Scholar

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

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.

Dan Russell, Senior Account Director at AMV BBDO, 2015 Scholar

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 realise 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, Brand Manager at KFC, 2015 Scholar

The Marketing Academy is the most incredible learning opportunity. The combination of open, inspiring and generous mentors, coaching sessions, bootcamp talks and workshops and lunch and learns provide a brilliant opportunity to soak up knowledge from incredible leaders and think about how you can apply the ideas to your own life and work.

Emily Hare, Managing Editor for Contagious, 2015 Scholar

Not only am I developing my industry knowledge and building a wider network of peers, I am learning the vital skills to progress from ‘manager’ to ‘leader’. It’s 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 ‘pay it forwards’ 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.

Gemma Holmes, Manager of Marketing Homesense UK for TK Maxx Group, 2015 Scholar

The Marketing Academy is not only career-defining, it's life-changing. I have learned more than I could have possibly imagined from the inspirational speakers, mentors, my coach and of course the other brilliant scholars. I think everyone takes something different out of the programme depending on their own vision and purpose and development areas, but for me the coaching on taking control of your own outcomes, becoming a key person of influence, and "daring to begin before you are ready" has had the most impact.
