Testimonials

Prudential

“Thank you for your presentation at our 2018 Partners’ Conference. The story, your response and the manner in which you have turned such adversity into a positive is awe-inspiring enough. But the real message for me lies in your delivery which is laced with humour, warmth and humility. As you may have detected, building our community is very important in the business we’re building and the characteristics you displayed, coupled with your inspiring messages, will serve as model behaviours for everyone who heard you.”

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.

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.

Mark’s quiet calm and confidence on stage really enraptured our guests.  He tells an inspiring personal story that resonates superbly with a business audience yet is never contrived or over-messaged.  It was a total pleasure to work with Mark.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes

“I first met Mark while competing against him in the North Pole Marathon and was struck by his incredible spirit. To take on endurance challenges in places like The Poles, Himalaya and Gobi Desert requires great courage and mental strength. The fact that Mark completes these adventures after losing the use of his eyes and now his legs makes him truly remarkable.”

Dr Martens

“Mark spoke at our first ever global managers meeting at Dr Martens in London. Mark’s powerful talk around perseverance, teamwork and collaboration really resonated and mirrored our own brand values. Mark’s delivery connected with our entire team and was continuously referred to over the whole event. We would absolutely recommend Mark as a truly inspirational individual who encouraged us all to re-frame our thinking and approach”

BOI Global Markets

Mark tells his story in a way that is both profound and touching. He provides his audience with a real insight into his personal struggle to overcome his fears and achieve his business and sporting ambitions while dealing with becoming blind in his early 20s. He is living proof that if you have a positive outlook and are focused on your goals, you can do anything you want to.

Mars

Mark spoke to the whole Mars Ireland Business. Mark’s personal humility, remarkable achievements and genuine honesty really touched and inspired many of the team, myself included. Whilst Mark may not be the most famous motivational speaker I would recommend him ahead of the usual celebrity list.

“Mark presented at our Global Sales Partners Conference in Twitter and was exceptional.  His ability to link his personal story to people’s everyday life and work challenges was excellent.

The session was not just about listening to an incredible story, it was a chance for everyone to really think about themselves.  There is something in this talk for everyone.”Twitter Logo

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.
