Testimonials

World Economic Forum

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.

Mark spoke at our sales conference. The impact was instant and the messages continue to affect our people. His delivery was awe-inspiring and truly humbling, which forced us all to take a step back and consider how we face challenges and make decisions. Empowering our teams to take action and avoid excuses is key to our success as a business and Mark’s story demonstrates how to do that.

Facebook

“During our recent conference at Facebook’s EMEA Head Office, we explored practical ways to respond to challenges, change and uncertainty. Mark used his story to encourage us to think differently about how we decide to respond to challenges, regardless of where they come from. Feedback from the team about his talk was incredibly positive.  From my perspective, it was both inspirational and full of valuable insights which can be applied to the work the legal team does here at Facebook.”

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.
