An inspiring programme


Our Inspiring Minds programme has evolved over the last 5 years as an effective training and development programme. Content and speakers are developed in line with our mission to inspire bolder marketing leadership and best practice criteria used to judge our Star Awards.

Recognising marketing talent and case studies that set the standard of marketing excellence, these awards are an important demonstration of world-class marketing in the Scotland community.


Since 2010 The Marketing Society have hosted a special day during the Edinburgh Festival which offers members something a bit different - four fantastic events in one festival day.


Industry Insights is a new programme of events designed to provide members with an opportunity to gain insights into different industries, organisations and disciplines.  Events are hosted by leading corporate members. Next up Denholm Associates with Strong Employer Brands.


In association with Cutty Sark Scotch, these awards have been developed using award winning marketing ideas around the world as a source of inspiration. See the latest list of winners and shortlisted entries in our Library or visit our Pioneering Spirit website.


Whilst we have a wonderful pool of regular bloggers, we're always on the lookout for great content that inspires our members to become bolder leaders. If you think you've got a great idea for a blog or piece of content email it to us as a short synopsis.


Join our Book Club. If you're a member we'd love you to write a 300-word review for our Clubhouse. We've got a wealth of inspiring books for you to review. Also. we've got lots of members keen to review your book so if you're an author get in touch.


We're always looking to grow our brilliant network with like-minded senior marketers. If you know someone that you think would benefit from membership, please recommended them. Should they become a member, we'll reward you with a gift of your choice.
