Marketing Leaders Programme: Asia

A three-phased development leadership retreat for high potential individuals who are preparing for marketing leadership roles.

The programme addresses the strategic, commercial and leadership challenges facing senior marketers and their teams today. Delegates return to the business with renewed energy and confidence that has infiltrated the whole team. They have brought a fresh leadership perspective, new ways of working, a greater capacity for workload and an invaluable business network. Previous delegates have told us it has changed their lives. They go on their own personal leadership journey and discover how to be the best marketing leader they can be.

We know that organisations have many different training offerings available to their employees, but what sets MLP apart is that it blends the experiences of eminent marketing leaders (the external insight and wisdom) with the soft leadership skills (the being and doing).

"Having completed the MLP in the UK in 2012, it was one of the most effective and transformational learning opportunities of my career. Not long after the programme I moved to Asia and into a role where I had an opportunity to immediately apply Future-Engage-Deliver. And I can honestly say the senior-level buy-in and overall impact of my first 6 months were largely attributable to the leadership learnings from the MLP.'"Yvette Templar, Regional Marketing Director Asia, RSA Insurance
