The experience

The 2024 programme is fully residential over for 6 days in March, April and June, followed by half a 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. 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. 

Modules

Future
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.

7-8 March
Engage
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.


18-19 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.
