Whistle Stop Visit To MLC Academy Marseille

MLC Academy, Marseille recently celebrated it’s fifth birthday! Here is an account of my recent whistle stop visit.

My trip to MLC Academy, Marseille was important for several reasons. They are a small team and I enjoy catching up with the management and teachers and it helps me understand the differences between our achievements and challenges and gives us all an opportunity to ensure that our growing brand identity and message is understood and delivered.


I chose to travel from Nottingham to Marseille on the train rather than flying. I calculated that it would take an extra two hours and I could leave our home at 9.30am rather than 2.00am! I spent my time making notes, reading and frequenting the on-board bar and restaurant and arrived remarkably fresh at 8.30pm

The Day

Tuesday was a busy day! It began with three hours of meetings and research. I then set up to film three videos for Rob’s online school before preparing to give a master class to a group of students in the evening. The day was intense and extremely rewarding.

My inbound journey was as pleasurable as the one I took only 48 hours before. Breakfast in Marseille, Lunch in Paris and dinner in London before heading north to Nottingham. I spent my time editing videos for my forthcoming multimedia book that I hope to release April 2018.

The trip was an absolute success. Thanks to Rob and Therese for their tireless efforts at MLC-Academy, Marseille and a note of thanks to my industry partners, Sabian, Natal, Promark and Evans for their continued support.
