Applications are now open for the 2016 Excellence Diploma. As the IPA’s most challenging qualification, it offers participants an unrivalled opportunity to further develop their careers.
The Excellence Diploma programme takes delegates deep into the world of brands and challenges them throughout to assess and re-asses their views before finally arriving at a point where they can articulate, in a thesis, their ultimate belief about the role and value of brands.
These essays are reviewed by leading individuals in the industry. Imagine the opportunity to have yours read and discussed by the editor of the industry bible, the leader of one of the world's biggest agencies and icons from the areas of strategy and planning.
The programme has consistently helped us to identify exceptional individuals. Last year's President's Prize winner, Charlie Ebdy, has so far spoken on the main-stage at Ad Week, been invited to give a keynote at Thinkbox's upcoming Big Think and been featured as a contributor and commentator for Campaign. A great reward for the hard work he's put in. In fact, Charlie's essay, The Hare and The Tortoise, is pretty exceptional and well worth a read as it talks about how there are two speeds to the building and development of brands.
Excellence Diploma alumni includes several agency founders, successful brands creators and many who have gone on to rise to the top of their businesses. One thing about all of them, is they are passionate about the programme and the opportunities it's afforded them.
This qualification will challenge and inspire and like the best things in life it won't be easy, but it will certainly be worthwhile! Find out more
