Testimonials

Royal Geographical Society

“Explorers and adventurers of all kinds have spoken to our membership at the Royal Geographical Society in Hong Kong and Mark Pollock’s story fitted right in with this.  In addition though, in this humorous, eloquent and passionate talk, his message to be a competitor, realist and collaborator resonated with our international audience of members and guests.”

Google

“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.”

Nestlé Nespresso

“Whenever we gather our demonstration team together, we seek to motivate and inspire them to each personally impact the business when they are back in the trade environment. We took the opportunity to bring Mark into the meeting to deliver a powerful message, that we hoped would resonate with the team throughout a key trading period.  We certainly got the reaction we were looking for thanks to the compelling way in which Mark delivered such a personal experience, blending moments of real pain with great hope and at times humour, ensuring the team left the meeting with a renewed enthusiasm and belief to think differently and approach their challenges head on – Thank You Mark!”

International Triathlon Union

“Mark’s contribution was a perfect fit for our ITU Science and Triathlon World Conference in Edmonton, Canada. But most of all, it was an inspiring and motivational speech that made us all realise the challenges and life experiences we all have to face everyday, and a different approach to those. His experiences of taking decisions in difficult circumstances aligned perfectly with the challenges faced by our coaches, athletes and officials, and therefore we feel really inspired by Mark’s talk. I’m absolutely convinced that Mark’s insights into resilience, innovation and collaborative leadership impacted the rest of our meeting.”

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.

In the weeks following Mark’s talk I have seen managers’ at LinkedIn reference Mark’s approach to solving complex problems. His talk was inspirational and can be applied in our daily business lives.

EY Ireland

Mark has presented to our EY tax department and to the finalists of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year programme. By using his experiences as a backdrop, he presented the decisions that we all face in times of uncertainty and change. And, as the story unfolded, both audiences were prompted to examine their decision making when challenges appear. The relevance to entrepreneurs and corporate employees alike was excellent.
