What is Inspire?

Our mission at Inspire is learning that’s good for everyone. We’re a charity, run by a group of 20 volunteers, and across the year run a series of coaching breakfasts, leadership lectures and our flagship event Inspire Live.

100% of the money we raise is donated to support 18-24 apprentices who are not currently in work, education or training. The Marketing Academy’s Apprenticeship programme is run in partnership with The Prince’s Trust and over the past three years we’ve raised over £60k for the apprentices. 

2017 is our 4th annual Inspire Live event; a chance for 200 leaders be inspired by the best our industry has to offer.
