MarketING Leaders Programme

The Marketing Society, together with Accenture Song, 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

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 hundreds of promising senior marketers over the last 18 years from Aviva, Bacardi, Barclays, Costa Coffee, Weetabix, British Gas, Paddy Power, Tesco, McDonald's, Heineken, Unilever and so many more.
