Marketing Academy Scholarship Coach

5th August 2017 | Beverly Landais

I am pleased to announce that I have joined the Coaching Faculty of the Marketing Academy as a Scholarship Coach. 

The Marketing Academy is a non-profit and voluntary organisation run by Marketing Hall of Legends (UK).  The mission of the Marketing Academy is to identify and develop exceptional talent in the fields of Marketing, Advertising, Media and Communications through mentoring, coaching and experiential learning. 

Sponsored by Facebook, ITV, Microsoft, Marketing Week and BT, the Scholarship programme is highly selective, completely free of charge and provide a forum for business leaders to inspire, develop and mentor an entire generation of leaders. 

Over the course of the nine-month programme, each Scholar will be working with a professional Coach who will be their partner in helping them to navigate through their learning experiences and deliverables. The Coach will also play the role of challenger, facilitator, and sounding board - to enable the Scholar to achieve their higher ‘stretch’ goals and grow as a leader.

The Marketing Academy Professional Coaching Team are members of the Association for Coaching. The Coaching Faculty is led by Katherine Tulpa, CEO of Wisdom8 and Chair of the Association of Coaching.

Nominations are now open for the Marketing Academy 2018 Scholarship. Here’s how it works:

All potential Scholars must first be 'nominated' by someone who believes them to be the best and the brightest marketing talent in the UK. Every 'nominee' will then receive an 'Invitation to Apply' for a 2018 Scholarship by email.

Once the nominee receives the 'Invitation to Apply' they must submit a 3 part application: a CV, an endorsement from their employer and a two minute 'Showcase Me'. Those that get through this initial screening will then embark on a rigorous selection process.

You can download the 'Scholarship Programme Guide' here which will tell you all you need to know about The Marketing Academy, the Scholarship curriculum as well as the selection criteria, process and key dates. 

There are Scholarships available for individuals who don’t have a ‘classic’ marketing background. So if you know someone with amazing entrepreneurial ability, or who have demonstrated exceptional potential as a natural marketer you can nominate them too.

You have until the 19th February 2018 to nominate the best marketing talent you know

"In 2018/2019 I benefited from 7 coaching sessions as part of a bespoke coaching plan for new equity partners created by Beverly. The sessions were designed around the needs of our business and culture but were flexed and adapted to my individual needs. Beverly is a great coach, she has a lovely manner which allowed me to fully relax, enjoy the sessions and open up. She was not afraid to challenge me to achieve my potential and improve. I now feel well placed to help shape the direction of the firm and contribute to its further growth. "

Ed Fowler, Partner - Cripps Pemberton Greenish

"Beverly has a lovely personality and such a wonderful way of effortlessly building rapport to get to the heart of my situation - an absolute masterclass. It was clear from the start she had a tremendous breadth and depth of knowledge & experience and provided me with invaluable resources. Especially helpful was the use of the Strengths Profile that deepened my perception and awareness of myself. I felt agreeably compelled to work hard to change my behaviours to help me clarify and set personal and professional goals. I already see the benefits in a little under 6-months. I unreservedly recommend Beverly to anyone who is serious about moving forward in any aspect of their life."

Jack McLeish, Security & Defence Sector

"It has been an absolute pleasure being coached by Beverly. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, engaging and professional. She was very quick to understand what makes me tick but more importantly able to help me understand some of the weaknesses that I was unaware of. I have now used the lessons I have learnt to better structure how I work leading to an improved work-life balance, more efficient use of my time and working towards goals that will excite and motivate me. I cannot recommend Beverly highly enough. "

Graham Moles, Head of Portfolio Solutions - Legal & General Investment Management

"Beverly is an exceptional coach. I've worked with a number of coaches over the years and Beverly has been by far the most effective and the most practical. Beverly seamlessly blends being both incredibly well qualified professionally with being absolutely genuine and natural in the application of her work. Beverly worked with me to help define specific desired outcomes for our time together and then created an actionable plan to achieve my goals. Beverly shares relevant resources and templates immediately after our sessions that are appropriate to the situation, and they have been incredibly useful to this day. Thank you, Beverly! "
