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.”

Vodafone

Your account of how you have overcome the loss of sight and continued to live your life and “make it happen” was humbling. But more than that, it was truly inspiring and invigorating as you challenged each one of us to reflect on and recognise how we choose to live our lives. You illustrated by personal example how we make decisions and that, by deciding what we want to change and what we want to see persist; we can find a powerful way through obstacles that originally might have seemed insurmountable. You also recounted your experiences with great style, honesty and humour. I can tell you that everyone who heard you has since spoken of you and been energised.
