Here’s what they say about The Marketing Academy Scholarship
The Marketing Academy has far exceeded my expectations. I have met some really inspirational and interesting senior Marketing leaders who have been both generous and honest in sharing their advice and experiences- I have already developed an enviable list of contacts and that will only expand by the end of the academy!
If I was to give one piece of advice to any talented, ambitious Marketeer it would be to do everything you can to try and secure a place on the Marketing Academy- it’s an experience that will benefit you for years to come.
I have been involved in lots of training and development in the past but nothing comes close to the Marketing Academy. The unique combination of coaching, leadership training, mentoring, faculty days and working with a charity delivers a fantastic combination of experiences and learning. In summary it’s just great!
The Marketing Academy, quite simply, redefines you. It changes the way you see yourself, it changes the way you want other people to see you, and it changes the person you want to be in the future. And you learn all this with the support of the most incredible network: the scholars who go through it with you, the mentors who never fail to inspire you and the business coach who helps you make sense of it all. Anyone who has an ambition to be a leader in the marketing world should apply.
It's incredible what you can learn and achieve in just six months. The Marketing Academy has enabled me not only make transformations within our business - in areas as diverse as leadership and culture to business goals and strategies - but has given me invaluable tools in personal leadership. I can genuinely say that The Marketing Academy will have a positive and meaningful impact on the legacy I play a part in building.
The Marketing Academy teaches you so much more than marketing, you learn to live and lead a better life. Every industry should have an Academy!
The ripple effect of The Marketing Academy is hard to fathom. It extends far beyond every Scholar and will last long after the year. Long may the learning, development, sharing and fantastic network of inspiring people continue!
I can’t say Thanks you to Sherilyn and Camilla adequately. The Marketing Academy has given me one of the best opportunities I am sure I will ever be given in my career. I feel privileged to have been selected amongst such a fantastic group of people and to have met the amazingly generous mentors and contributors along the way. Being part of the Academy has taught me so much about myself and how to perform at the best of my ability. I have thoroughly enjoyed what has been a hugely inspirational year of my life – next year will be nothing in comparison!
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!
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 ago 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 opened so many doors for me, it is unreal! I never thought when I was applying that I would get exposure to so many game makers in the industry.
The real benefit of the Marketing Academy however, is not all the amazing talks we are given, the business leaders we get to meet and the skills we learn but the ability to create real and hopefully career lasting friendships with the other 27 amazingly super talented and hungry individuals on the academy.
The legacy of the academy will last my whole career and I can’t thank Sherilyn, Camilla and the team enough for that.
If you want the best training in the industry, you simply have to do everything in your power to get on the Marketing Academy, everything else pales in comparison.
The Marketing Academy, without wanting to be a cliche, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It's not just about networking and mentoring, it's about building relationships with people who will help you become a strong leader and a technically excellent marketer.
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.
Becoming part of the scholarship has changed my life. I have been given access to people I have only ever read about who happily share all their pearls of wisdom with me. I have been taught leadership skills that have truly changed my outlook not only in my working life but in my personal life too - skills which I am now using to become the person I want to be. I still every day think about how lucky I have been to be a part of this amazing opportunity and urge anyone considering being involved to do everything you can to be part of this.
A truly remarkable, once in a lifetime, opportunity to learn from the very best marketers and leaders in the UK. Each part of the Marketing Academy jigsaw influences and compliments the other so well - from the coaching and mentoring, to faculties and giving back through charitable support - every up and coming marketer worth their salt should be considering applying in 2011.
I'm not one for soppy stories but I have truly become a better person as an output of the scholarship. Never have I revised, reflected and refined myself so much. I am truly grateful to have been given the time to just think about the leader I want to be, not have to be. Priceless.
I feel hugely excited and privileged to be part of the Marketing Academy. The combination of mentoring, coaching and training provides a unique opportunity, which is totally un-matched by any other programme out there. I’m excited about shaping and supporting the Marketing Academy so future scholars have the same opportunities as us.
