2018 Marketing Academy cohort revealed

The Marketing Academy confirms this year's intake of marketing, media and creative professionals

The Marketing Academy has announced the 30 Australian marketing media and creative professionals selected to participate in this year’s marketing leadership program.

This year’s cohort was chosen following a three-stage selection process which involved more than 300 nominations, 100 pitches and 60 face-to-face interviews. Marketing Academy founder, Sherilyn Shackell, said the quality of talent on offer in this country was “remarkable”.

Thirteen of this year's cohorts are from the agency space, one from the consulting space, and the remainder from client-side organisations.

It’s the fourth year for The Marketing Academy’s scholarship program, which is being sponsored by Google, Commonwealth Bank, News Corp Australia, Microsoft and PwC. The year-long curriculum includes one-to-one mentoring sessions with local industry leaders, sessions with an executive coach, participation in three bootcamps, and four lecture series hosted by local and international subject matter experts.

“As we enter our fourth year, the standard of applications continues to raise the bar,” Shackell said. “While this is great to see, it also means our job of selecting the 30 becomes even harder. I’d like to say a huge thank you to the industry CEOs and CMOs who nominated such an amazing array of talent this year.”

3 marketing mistakes to overcome when courting prospective customers

Marketing that urges respondents to ‘buy now’ is a little like asking someone to marry you on your first date. At any time, only 3 per cent of the market is looking for what you’re selling, so the chances of your date randomly being ‘The One’ is pretty slim.
