Why join our network
The Marketing Society is a progressive global community of senior marketers. Our purpose is to empower our members to be brave leaders
Since 1959, we have grown into an influential network of 2500 members across our global hubs: London, Scotland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, and New York. Our members are mostly senior clients (over 70%) and include international brands such as Apple, Barclays, Dimension Data, HSBC, IHG, L’Oréal, Mars, Samsung, Unilever, Vodafone and Wells Fargo.
Everything we do is through a brave lens – pushing boundaries, tackling taboos, providing comfortable spaces to have important conversations and building meaningful connections. We speak up, inspire one another, share best practice and discuss the challenges and opportunities we face. We work together to make our industry better for business and better for the world around us.
Attend our global programme of events, access the latest thinking online, including over ten years of best practice award-winning case studies. Have your work recognised as part of our Brave Awards and Star Awards competing against the best of the best, receive complimentary copies of Campaign, plus our own publication Empower. Progress your career via professional development like our Marketing Leaders Programme, and get discounted tickets to industry events.
