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
