Testimonials

EMEA Emerging Markets Google

“Mark spoke at our Google Emerging Markets event. His message of resilience, leadership and collaboration really resonated with our dynamic, international team. And, his ability to balance both the darker and lighter sides of his life experiences prompted us to think about how we approach our challenges.”

Bayer PLC

“Amazing, humbling experience, Mark held a room of over 400 people and you could not hear a pin drop – his messages on continuously reinventing yourself and using challenges to define your future was done in an engaging, perceptive, inquisitive and humorous way. His insights truly connected with the audience on so many levels and left them with one enduring quote “…sometimes you do not choose a challenge, it chooses you…”. Mark is proof that it’s one thing to read the theory but quite another to live it.”

Brunswick

Following Mark’s impactful contribution to our Global Conference in 2017, we asked him back to talk to our staff worldwide during this period of unprecedented turbulence. Switching from the in-person to on-screen format, Mark managed to engage even more directly and powerfully with our teams . I cannot think of anyone we have had present over the years who has been more inspiring and speaks with such resonance to so many of us. Co-hosted with his colleague Paula Cunniffe it went down universally well, my favourite moment was when Mark reminded  us that sometimes the challenge chooses us and what we decide to do about it is what counts – exactly what we needed at this time.

DJO Global

“We have had many guest speakers at our annual DJO Global sales conference over the years, but no one made a lasting impact quite like Mark. The feedback from the team after his speech was incredible and unanimously positive. Mark’s inspirational words had a huge impact on the team and helped them to put their own challenges into perspective. His message resonated throughout the remainder of the conference.”

Google – 1

“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.”

Avolon – 2

Uncertainty and change has swept through the airline industry and we are facing that challenge head on at Avolon, as Mark says “Dealing with the Facts”. To support our employees to remain resilient and adaptive to the evolving situation, we engaged Mark to work with us through his ‘Challenge is the Opportunity’ webinars co-hosted with Paula Cunniffe. Everything from the opening presentation to the interview and interactive Q&A worked excellently. The learning and mental diversion for all was hugely impactful, insightful and worthwhile.

National Geographic Magazine

Mark was a speaker at National Geographic’s Extreme Explorers dinner in Davos in January 2016. His personal story and insights were incredibly powerful, and clearly had a profound impact on everyone in the room. He embodies the spirit, resilience and determination that are the hallmarks of what it means to be an explorer.

Pfizer

Mark joined us at our National Conference to share his insights into individual decision making in tough circumstances, and the importance of collaborative working. Using his own field of endeavour to bring the session to life, he prompted us to focus on the decisions we make when we face challenges, rather than the challenges themselves. It is this kind of thinking that led us to invite Mark to speak at our conference, where he delivered a very powerful speech that left a lasting impression.

“We were delighted to welcome Mark as the keynote speaker at Avolon’s inaugural Aviation School in Dublin. The international audience of aviation professionals were moved and inspired by Mark’s story and by his compelling message to choose to be a competitor, a realist and a collaborator.

MetLife

Mark presented at our National Sales Meeting in London. The audience are a tough and sometimes cynical group of sales people when it comes to outside speakers. The key messages of ‘deal in facts’, ‘get a great team around you’ and ‘have the right attitude’ really hit home in this difficult economic environment. The best thing about listening to Mark speak is that he is the embodiment of everything he speaks about. There is no better role model that I have seen in my 25 year career. I’m honoured to have met Mark and heard his story.
