The 2023 programme is fully residential and located in Greater London (UK) for 6 days over March, April and June, followed by one day in September for a 'Reconnect'. MLP brings marketing leaders together to prepare for their next leadership role. Leading in uncertain times is challenging, the essence of the programme remains to nurture great talent and enable them to be at their best more of the time.

You will have the opportunity to work in pairs, in challenge and support groups as well as experience group coaching and 1:1 coaching with our facilitators. Delegates will leave with a ready-made support network of marketing leaders who they can learn from long after the programme has ended.

The inspiring roll call of senior marketers who coach our attendees reads like a who's who of the industry, with an alumni which includes McDonald’s Jill McDonald, BBC's Kerris Bright, McDonald's Alistair Macrow, moneysupermarket's Peter Duffy, Just Eat's (non-exec) Roisin Donnelly, Unilever’s Aline Santos, Channel 4’s Zaid Al-Qassab and so many more. 

Genuinely the best course I have been on in 23 years. Deep thinking with really practical advice and tips.

Neil Batchelor, Aviva

Module 1: Future

In a marketing world where the past is no longer a predictor of the future, this module is all about equipping participants with the ability to lead for a future which is immensely exciting and unpredictable in equal measure.



9-10 March

New York

Module 2: Engage

In an era of distraction where engagement can be temporary, we focus on bringing others on the journey with you; how to lead not only for marketing but on behalf of marketing across the business.




20-21 April



Module 3: Deliver

Indecision and failure to act at pace often leads to competitors winning, we therefore focus on the critical skills and behaviours that you can build, giving you the confidence to lead and deliver outstanding results.




15 - 16 June


Reconnect and share

Reconnect and share session. In the last couple of years we've run a reconnect session for delegates, and they've given us great feedback, saying it helps refresh them on the learnings from the course after some time away.

During this session you will be matched with a mentor from the marketing industry.
