Marketing Academy explores changes in leadership at Inspire

The Marketing Academy is hosting its Inspire conference on the 15th April where senior marketers and business leaders from brands such as Sainsbury’s, O2 and Diageo will discuss the changing nature of leadership.

The one-day event takes place in London at Google’s HQ with all proceeds going to The Marketing Academy’s Merlin’s Apprentice Fund, which funds 12 month apprenticeships in marketing, advertising and media for young adults from challenging backgrounds.

You can also win a mentoring session from some of the UK’s top marketing leaders in a raffle on the day, with proceeds from ticket sales also going to the Apprentice Fund.

Sherilyn Shackell, founder of the Marketing Academy, says: “The Inspire Conference has to be one of my favourite things in the entire Marketing Academy calendar. Filled with hugely engaging speakers and quality content, the energy in the room is always palpable.

“It’s a way for us to share some Marketing Academy magic with the whole industry and at the same time raise some money for our Merlin’s Apprentice Fund. The conference had already changed the lives of young people by funding Apprenticeships so it really is a game changing conference, for everyone involved.”
