The LIONS School programmes are for a select number of marketing and creative professionals who want to fast-track their careers. Taking place at Cannes Lions - The Festival of Creativity - every year, the best in the industry train 30 professionals at each Academy to become irreplaceable. The Media, Brand Marketer, Creative and Roger Hatchuel Academies have seen hundreds of ambitious creative and marketing professionals expand their networks for life and learn from the best in the industry.
