Everything Mark does as a motivational and keynote speaker is about inspiring people to build resilience and collaborate with others so that they achieve more than they thought possible.


Using his hard-earned expertise, Mark’s keynote speeches inspired millions of people to achieve more than they thought possible in hundreds of organisations worldwide as well as at TED, Davos, the World Economic Forum, F.ounders, InnoTown, EG and Wired.


In times of uncertainty, we all need to learn how to adapt, perform, and collaborate better. Mark and his colleague Paula Cunniffe are supporting leaders and teams around the world to do that through Mark’s masterclass series.

Mark’s story

Unbroken by blindness in 1998 he went on to become the first blind person to race to the South Pole. Now, after a catastrophic spinal cord injury in 2010, he is on a new expedition exploring the intersection where humans and technology collide.


Author of Making It Happen, Mark is the subject of the acclaimed documentaries Blind Man Walking and Unbreakable – The Mark Pollock Story. He is a regular contributor to international broadcast and print media.

Mark provided a powerful perspective to the assembled media at Davos. Mark doesn’t just talk about the transformative intersection of technology and humankind – he lives it. As he explores a cure for paralysis, he helped people understand the human dimension of the fourth industrial revolution at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting.

It was a privilege to have Mark address both our customers and our Management Team at Google. He delivers that rare combination of inspiration, perspective and practical insight that forces his audience to really reflect on how they rise to their personal challenges and set goals that seem unachievable. He delivers his message in a deeply personal, humorous and memorable way that lands with his audience. It was a pleasure for all of us to spend time in his company. Inspiring.
