MarketING Leaders Programme

The Marketing Society, together with Accenture Interactive, 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


Established in 2004, 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

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