Our Team

Meet our growing team of people that are passionate about providing next generation training.

Hello from our CEO & Founder

The School of Marketing was founded to give young people from diverse backgrounds access to opportunities in the marketing industry.


Today, we continue to open doors and have become a thriving global community for all existing and budding marketers to develop and take their next steps in their career.  


We’re passionate about the development and creation of the next generation of who we term, Industry Giants. We want to train innovative, high-quality marketers, and enable individuals to thrive and progress through all stages of their career aspirations.


We also continue to champion the marketing industry and lead the thinking on how we can become more inclusive, diverse, and open to under-represented talent.  


One of the ways we do this is through our unique mentoring programme. We currently have over 80 CMOs from FTSE companies directly mentoring on our programme and we’re adding more all the time.


Our ethos and mission make us well placed to guide people at all stages of their career, toward the right training and career opportunities within the industry.


Meet the team members below that help make it all happen.
