We’re all glowing with pride this week as 1000heads’ Engagement Director James Whatley embarks on the first few days of his training as a Marketing Academy Scholar 2010.
He is one of only 28 “exceptionally talented” young marketers chosen from over 200 applicants to take part in the prestigious programme, which helps “the current generation of successful CEOs, CMOs, Entrepreneurs, Agency Presidents and Academics to collectively share their knowledge, experience and wisdom with talented young marketers on a one to one basis” throughout the next year.
This means he’ll get invaluable mentoring from some of the top movers and shakers in the UK from organisations such as Pepsi, Facebook, Diageo, BT, Virgain, M&C Saatchi, the Home Office, the IoD and Comic Relief in order to both broaden and deepen his own skills.
We can’t think of anyone who deserves it more, and we’re all looking forward to benefiting from the insights James will gain. In fact, check out his application video, which shows us waxing lyrical about our Whatley:
Warm glow. Good job, kid.
