Shackell said “We are so excited to bring the Fellowship to the APAC region this year and can’t wait to meet the cohort at their first Residential in Australia later this month. Bringing together marketing leaders from China, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and India will provide a culturally rich experience for the entire cohort.”

Alumni Andréa Mallard, global chief marketing & communications officer at Pinterest said “The Fellowship Program is absolutely not another conference and it’s not an online course. Most amazing: it helped me think more broadly about my entire life, not just my career.”
