MarketING Leaders Programme

The Marketing Society, together with Brand Learning, has developed the Marketing Leaders Programme (MLP) as a unique development experience for high potential marketers who are preparing for senior leadership roles. To support the development of great marketing leaders, globally


Now in its 18th year, the programme blends both marketing and people leadership skill development. It is delivered by eminent industry leaders and leadership experts and is designed to help shape the great global marketing leaders of tomorrow.

The strength of the programme lies in the way it brings together today’s marketing leaders with those of tomorrow, in an open environment, enabling frank and honest discussions between participants and globally renowned speakers.

We have coached over 300 promising senior marketers over the last decade from Aviva, Bacardi, Barclays and Royal Sun Alliance to Costa, Weetabix, British Gas, Paddy Power, Tesco, and Unilever.


COVID-19 update

The programme was previously run in London, New York and Singapore, but due to the global pandemic we've taken the decision to run the programmes virtually for the rest of 2020 and for 2021. Therefore we're now able to accept delegates from anywhere in the world.
